The LGT, MGT, VGT and HGT are girder tiedowns for moderate- to high-load capacity applications. The LGT and VGT are also suitable for retrofit applications.
LGT connectors provide a low-profile connection to the studs for easy installation of drywall. Simple to install and can be installed on the inside or outside of the wall. LGT connectors also provide exceptional bearing enhancement for heavy download applications.
The Variable Girder Tiedown (VGT) is a higher capacity alternative to the LGT and MGT for girder trusses. It attaches with Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws to the side of truss and features a predeflected crescent washer that allows it to accommodate top chord pitches up to 8/12. The VGT is also available with one flange concealed for attachment to trusses with no tail.
The HGT offers the highest uplift capacity for girders and can be installed on trusses and beams with top chord slopes up to 8/12.
