Lateral Systems

Presenting our Lateral Systems

Little did we know when we introduced our first holdown in 1966 that our product innovations would lead us to solutions that can help hold together five-story buildings during an earthquake or allow builders to more easily retrofit structures and install larger window and door openings in homes. Our offering of lateral-force resisting systems, including Wood and Steel Strong-Wall® shearwalls, Strong Frame® moment frames and new Strong-Rod™ Systems, gives designers and engineers added design flexibility in wood-frame construction and the confidence that almost anything is possible.
