to short anchor rods
Developed by Canam Buildings, Elocone nuts are special elongated nuts used as a corrective measure when anchor rods do not project far enough above the foundation.
These nuts are manufactured by machining a steel rod of high strength for forming the two different profiles.
The left section is similar to a standard nut and will bear on the column base plate. The one to the right has a smaller smooth diameter and is able to fit in an oversized hole on the base plate to screw on enough threads of the anchor rod installed bearing a short projection.
Elocone nuts should be referred to the anchor rods to a length equal to the diameter of the rod, to develop capacity in tension of anchor rods having an ultimate tensile strength of 1035 Pa (150 ksi).
