HRS/ST/FHA/PS/LSTA/LSTI/MST/MSTA/MSTC/MSTI Strap Ties

HRS/ST/FHA/PS/LSTA/LSTI/MST/MSTA/MSTC/MSTI

On This Page

Straps are load rated and provide the correct thickness and number of fasteners the specifier is looking for compared with field-fabricated straps.

Install strap ties where top or bottom plates are cut, at wall intersections, and as ridge ties. Reduce the allowable load based on the size and quantity of fasteners used.

Refer to applicable code for minimum edge and end distances.

Finish

  • PS — hot-dip galvanized (HDG); all others — galvanized. Some products are available in stainless steel or ZMAX®. See Corrosion Information.

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes

  1. PS strap design loads must be determined by the designer for each illustration. Hole diameter in the part may be oversized to accommodate the HDG. Designer must determine if the oversize creates an unacceptable installation.
