Mudsill anchors have always been a time-saving alternative to anchor bolts, and the new MASA anchors provide even greater load-carrying capacity than our original MAS. As a result, the MASA provides an alternative for 5/8" and 1/2" mudsill anchor bolts on 2x, double-2x and 3x mudsills. It also eliminates the need for 3" square plate washers for seismic design and, in some cases, has load capacities that meet or exceed the parallel and perpendicular to plate shear capacity of other cast-in-place anchors. Two versions of the MASA are available - the standard MASA for installation on standard forms and the MASAP for panelized forms. The MASA is code listed by ICC-ES under the 2006 and 2009 IBC and IRC and have been tested to meet the requirements of ICC-ES acceptance criteria AC-398 for cracked and uncracked concrete.
