Shear Connector Weld Stud

Shear Connector Studs are designed to tie concrete to the steel beams and to reisist shear loadings between the concrete slab and steel beam in composite construction. 

Length is before weld. Stud when welded to base metal will be approximately 3/16” shorter after weld and when welded thru-deck 3/8” shorter after weld. Lengths for shear connector studs are generally set by governing specifications. Consult your NFS representative for other available lengths for specific applications. Made to order lengths available upon request. 

Material – Low carbon steel, ASTM A108 1010-1020.  Shear connector studs are also available in stainless steel.
