Simpson Strong-Tie Ratcheting Take-Up Devices

Simpson Strong-Tie has expanded its product line of Ratcheting Take-Up Devices (RTUD) with products redesigned specifically for 7/8″- and 1″-diameter threaded rod. The RTUD product line is engineered to provide a superior wood-shrinkage and construction gap compensation solution for continuous rod systems that resist uplift or overturning in multi-story wood structures. As part of a complete tie-down system, the RTUD provides engineers and builders working on multistory projects with a pass-through design for unlimited shrinkage compensation and faster, easier installation. The new, larger devices also allow for solutions accommodating a greater size range of threaded rods and higher demand loads. The RTUD has also been thoroughly tested per ICC-ES AC316 and is code listed under ICC-ES ESR-2320.
