Strong-Rod™ Threaded Rod

Strong-Rod™

Strong-Rod™ threaded rods are the tension-transfer element within the Shearwall Overturning Restraint System. The Strong-Rod threaded rod is threaded on both ends, with the top end having 48" of thread to allow for installation flexibility. Information clearly etched on the shank allows easy identification in the field.
