Appears on pages(s): 67-68
Per Provision 126.96.36.199 in ACI 318-141 and Provision 26.7.2(e) in ACI 318-19,2 adhesive anchor installer certification is required when installing horizontally or upwardly inclined adhesive anchors that are to support sustained tension loads. Can you clarify the definition of “sustained tension load” as it applies to these Code provisions?
