Tension Ties
Item ID: AHTT16, AHTT22

The AHTT series tension ties provide a full range of load capacity for retrofitting or new construction. Tension ties connect shear panels to the foundation and can be installed after the pour.

MATERIAL: 11 ga. galvanized steel Available in G-185 Triple Zinc or Hot-Dip Galvanized. Call for availability.
NOTE: AHTT tension ties are attached to approved anchor bolts of the diameter specified with a capacity equal to or greater than the allowable holddown capacity. Concrete compressive strength must be a minimum of 2,000 psi at 28 days. Side cover and embedment depth requirements in accordance with the approved anchor bolt requirements. Nail lengths are minimum penetration into the structural wood member (minus steel thickness). Longer nails may be used at the same load values. Uplift loads have been increased 33% and 60% (C = 1.33 or 1.60, for fastener design in wood) D for short-term wind and earthquake loading for recognition under UBC and IBC/IRC, respectively. No further increase is permitted. Allowable loads are based on the use of either nails or bolts, and are not otherwise cumulative.

"Critical to the success of any design is the detailing and construction of it. We have been impressed with the Tamlyn Products for their complete system approach."
