The FGTR is a high-load girder tiedown for new or retrofit masonry applications. This face-mount girder tiedown is a non-pitch-specific girder tiedown that offers high uplift capacity. The FGTR can be installed in a single application or in pairs.
Load rated to resist high-wind forces
The FGTRHL/R is designed for corner hip applications
Screw holes are configured to allow for double installation on a two-ply (minimum) truss
Straps: 7 gauge, plate: 3 gauge
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
To achieve the loads listed in the load table, the product shall be attached to a grouted and reinforced block wall or a reinforced concrete wall designed by others to transfer the high concentrated uplift loads to the foundation.
The product can be installed in a single application or in pairs to achieve a higher uplift capacity.
Can be installed on roof pitches from 0/12 to 8/12 or on a bottom chord designed to transfer the loads.
Only two of the four holes provided on each strap are required to be filled to achieve the published loads. The first 1/2" x 5" Titen HD® heavy-duty screw anchor (THD) shall be installed a minimum of 4" from the top of the wall. Anchors shall not be installed in adjacent holes.
Products shall be installed such that non-stainless Titen HD anchors are not exposed to the exterior environment.
For a single FGTR corner installation (4" min. end distance for Titen HD anchors), allowable uplift is 4,425 lb. (DF/SP) and 3,400 lb. (SPF/HF).
Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws may be installed through metal truss plates as approved by the truss designer, provided the requirements of ANSI/TPI 1-2014, Sections 126.96.36.199 and 8.9.2 are met (predrilling required through the plate using a 5/32" bit maximum).
