Anchor Tie Down System in Los Angeles CA
Looking for the Simpson Strong-Tie Anchor Tie Down System in Los Angeles CA? Come to Grove Construction Hardware.
The traditional answer to the threats posed to building stability by wind and earthquake forces has been connectors (straps, hurricane ties, and holdowns). This can work fine for one-story or even two-story wood-framed buildings. However, multi-story word-framed structures present additional challenges and require a stronger solution for creating a continuous load path to the foundation. This is why continuous rod tie down systems like the Simpson Strong-Tie Anchor Tie Down System in Los Angeles CA have become so popular.
