HDU Holdowns are pre-deflected during the manufacturing process, virtually eliminating deflection under load due to material stretch. They use Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws which install easily, reduce fastener slip and provide a greater net section when compared to bolts.
The HDU series of holdowns are designed to replace previous versions of the product such as PHD's as well as bolted holdowns. The HDU2, 4 and 5 are direct replacements for the PHD2, 5 and 6, respectively.
The DTT tension ties are designed for lighter-duty holdown applications on single 2x posts. The new DTT1Z is installed with nails or Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive SD Connector screws and the DTT2Z installs easily with the Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (included). The DTT1Z holdowns have been tested for use in designed shearwalls and prescriptive braced wall panels as well as prescriptive wood-deck applications (see DTT Deck Tension Ties for deck applications).
For more information on holdown options, contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
- Holdown designs virtually eliminate deflection due to material stretch.
- Uses Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws which install easily, reduce fastener slip, and provide a greater net section area of the post compared to bolts.
- Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws are supplied with the holdowns to ensure proper fasteners are used.
- No stud bolts to countersink at openings.
HDU – Galvanized; DTT1Z and DTT2Z – ZMAX® coating; DTT2SS – stainless steel
- Use all specified fasteners. See Holdown and Tension Tie General Notes.
- The HDU requires no additional washer, the DTT requires a standard cut washer (included with DTT2Z) be installed between the nut and the seat.
- Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws install best with a low speed high torque drill with a 3/8" hex head driver.
- For holdowns, per ASTM test standards, anchor bolt nut should be finger-tight plus 1/3 to 1/2 turn with a hand wrench, with consideration given to possible future wood shrinkage. Care should be taken to not over-torque the nut. Impact wrenches should not be used
