Mother Nature doesn’t care what names we assign to storms, whether hurricane, tornado or straight-line winds. High winds are high winds, and as we’ve seen too recently, they can do a terrible amount of damage. However, we can take what we’ve learned and use it to design structures able to resist these forces.
Join us live on August 12 to learn about connectors and fasteners specifically designed to resist uplift and lateral forces caused by high winds. We’ll discuss the code requirements, continuous load path connections and the resources made available in our new High Wind Guide to assist with both design and construction. We’ll walk through an example on using the guide to select proper connections for a wood-framed structure, as well as discuss the right connectors for use with other construction materials, such as in wood-to-steel or wood-to-concrete/CMU connections.
