PAB Pre-Assembled Anchor Bolt
The PAB anchor bolt is a versatile cast-in-place anchor bolt ideal for high-tension-load applications, such as rod systems and shearwalls. It features a plate washer at the embedded end sandwiched between two fixed hex nuts and a head stamp for easy identification after the pour.

- None or HDG
- On HDG PABs, chase the threads to use standard nuts or couplers or use overtapped products in accordance with ASTM A563; for example, Simpson Strong-Tie® NUT5/8-OST, NUT7/8-OST, CNW5/8-OST, CNW7/8-OST. Some OST couplers are typically oversized on one end of the coupler nut only and will be marked with an “O” on oversized side. Couplers may be oversized on both ends. Contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
- When calling out PAB anchor bolts, substitute the desired length for the “XX” in the Root Model Number
- For a 5/8″ x 18″ anchor bolt, the model number would be PAB5-18 (or PAB5H-18 for high strength)
