The LTA2 develops high uplift at a minimum heel height. Great in areas where a strap over the heel is not required. The side tab acts as a locator in the masonry block and the four embedded hooks provide for a positive bond in the concrete grout.

Key Features

  • Simplified design of the embedded portion allows for easy positioning close to rebar
  • Ideal for anchoring trusses running perpendicular or parallel to the wall
  • Embedment line stamped on part simplifies installation and helps avoid installation errors

Material

  • 18 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized; see Corrosion Information

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • Hurricane ties do not replace solid blocking.
  • Whether in grouted CMU or concrete, the LTA2 must be embedded to the depth of the embedment line stamped on the part.
  • Attach to grouted concrete block with a minimum one #5 rebar horizontal in the top lintel block.
  • For parallel-to-wall applications, install the LTA2 with flanges facing the center of the wall. Minimum edge distance of 1 1/2" required.
