The ATS runs can terminate in three different ways: at the top plates, at a bridge block or at a floor-level with straps. Determining the method of termination is complicated as many different variables come into play. With the design support service we offer, Simpson Strong-Tie will also take the system specification and recommend the best termination method for the given project. This enables the Designer to specify one termination type and know that Simpson Strong-Tie will verify that it works for all applications. Consider these variables when specifying run terminations.
