QuickTie—Tie-Down Systems for Wood-Framed and Block Structures

JLC met with Bob Frosio of QuickTie Systems to discuss QuickTie’s shear and uplift hold-down post-tensioned cable system for wood-framed structures; as well as their new masonry tie system for block walls. Both systems reduce the amount of anchors, additional reinforcement, and labor costs associated with meeting today’s model wind codes.
