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.
Our pre-engineered and tested Strong Frame ordinary and special moment frames deliver strength and design versatility for building resilient, multi-story structures.
Our line of pre-fabricated wood and steel shearwalls improve the quality, consistency and performance of shearwalls in the field.
Our Strong-Rod Systems offer safe and tested continuous rod tiedown solutions for multi-story, wood-frame construction in seismic and high-wind areas.
