Simpson Strong-Tie Introduces Light Tension Tie for Attaching Wood to Concrete or Masonry Walls

Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced the LTTP2 Tension Tie, which is designed to resist tension loads when used to attach wood to concrete or masonry walls offering 25% higher allowable loads than its predecessors.

The patent-pending tension tie is fabricated from a single piece of galvanized steel and features an extruded anchor bolt hole to accommodate 1/2″, 5/8″ and 3/4″ bolt diameters along with two separate nailing patterns: obround holes spaced 3″ apart for I-joist purlins, and square holes spaced to accommodate the narrow face of 2x solid sawn purlins. It can be installed vertically on the wide face of a minimum 2×4 stud for holdown applications and can be fastened with nails or Strong-Drive® SD Connector screws. It has a low-profile seat to reduce visibility of the connector.
