Steelwork Ferrules to edge of the panel

Steelwork Ferrules to edge of the panel

Hi Fellows

I am designing some load bearing panel wall. And would like to use the angle support the UB bolt to the Panel. I would like to ask the min. distance between the first bolt centre to the edge of the panel. I read through the hand book. it just give a example and a shop drawing. But no other mention about the edge distance requirement.

Also, for my another job, my manager suggest me use tie bar to transfer the slab load into the 100mm cladding panel then to pier support. But for me, I feel that the tie bar with ferrules is not design transfer shear force. I fax the question to the product company but still no reply. what is your comment?

Thanks for your time.
