HGT Heavy Girder Tiedown
On This Page
The HGT is a girder tiedown for high-load, 2-, 3- or 4-ply truss applications. The HGT offers high uplift capacity for girders and can be installed on trusses and beams with top chord slopes up to 8/12. The HGT can be anchored down into place directly into CMU or in combination with a holdown.
- Crescent washers supplied to allow for adjustability during installation
- Load rated to resist high-wind forces
- 7 gauge
- Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint
- Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
- When the HGT-3 is used with a 2-ply girder or beam, shimming is required. Fasten shim to act as one unit.
