The LGT, VGT and FGTR products are moderate- to high-load capacity girder tiedowns for new or retrofit applications.
LGT connectors provide a low-profile connection to the wall for easy installation of drywall. Simple to install and can be installed on the inside or outside of the wall.
The VGT variable girder tiedown 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 FGTR face-mount girder tiedown is a non-pitch specific girder tiedown that offers the highest uplift capacity for retrofit applications. The FGTRHL/R is designed for corner hip applications.
