Shear Studs

Shear connectors also named shear studs, concrete anchors, are typically used in composite steel construction to tie the concrete to steel members and resist shear forces between the concrete slab and steel members. They are widely used in steel building, bridges, etc. Welding Through Metal Deck are available for this stud, for this option, special ceramic ferrule type UFT are recommended. ASTRA shear connectors meet the following standards:
