Our Anchor Tiedown System (ATS) for shearwall overturning restraint addresses many of the design challenges specifically associated with multi-story buildings that must withstand seismic and high wind activity. For your project, you will want to implement drawing details that will assist you during design and construction. General details can be found in the Drawing Finder, as well as our general details sheets that are provided with our complete ATS design package. Below are two common run details; the rod offset detail and the mid-floor blocking detail.
General Note: In order for the take-up device assembly to function properly, rods must be installed at less than 1 degree from vertical, but not to exceed measured horizontal offset dimensions shown in the table to the right.
