This is a Holdown!
December 3, 2019
Ever since Simpson Strong-Tie began as pioneers in the world of timber connectors for construction, they have been driven by the mission to help people design and build safer, stronger structures.
Simpsons engineers are guided by the principles of continuous load path, where every element of buildings connections are related from the foundation to the roof. That means having solutions that deliver from the ground up, starting with a selection of holdowns that tie a building to its foundation and exceed the most demanding seismic and high wind requirements in the world.
This selection of holdowns assures the designer and builder of both uplift performance and the ultimate in anchoring to resist lateral forces. Check out the video, holdowns with no equal…
