From my uneducated perspective both concrete anchors and wood attachments that most people use in the field are not the prescriptive methods outlined in NFPA 13, but instead listed products that are easier to install.
In the interest of learning more about what's actually preferred by contractors, are there any good articles or book content anywhere that could help bring me up to speed on these various hanging attachments? Any help is appreciated.
