Is Type 304 or 316 Stainless Steel Right for Your Job?
Our code-listed Titen HD® heavy-duty screw anchor is now available in Types 316 and 304 stainless steel to resist corrosion and maintain the structural integrity of concrete.
Type 316 is the optimal choice for applications in corrosive or severe environments such as near chemicals or salt water.

Applications:
  • Coastal railings
  • Water treatment plants
  • Bridges
Type 304 is a cost-effective solution for less extreme applications, including in wet, moist or damp environments.

How to Resist Overturning in Multi-Story Construction
Multi-Story Construction
All wood-framed buildings need to be designed and constructed to resist shearwall-overturning and roof-uplift forces that can occur during seismic and wind events. The installation of continuous rod systems has grown in popularity with the increase of mid-rise wood construction (three- to six-story buildings). Our Strong-Rod® Anchor Tiedown System (ATS) offers many advantages to the Designer or engineer.

Learning proper installation of the Strong-Rod ATS ensures that the system will perform as needed and can also help you avoid costs and project delays associated with misinstalled systems.

Build Change Fellowship Renewed
Build Change
Simpson Strong-Tie has renewed its Fellowship for Engineering Excellence with international nonprofit enterprise Build Change. This is the second year of the Fellowship, and the company is again contributing over $160,000 to the effort.

Complementing our mission to find solutions for creating safer, stronger structures, the Fellowship allows innovative engineers the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to Build Change programs. Build Change saves lives by working with people in developing nations to build homes and schools that will protect their families and children during natural disasters. The organization also works with local communities to improve construction practices and build long-term resilience.

James Mwangi, the 2017–2018 Fellow noted, “The Fellowship offered me the opportunity to share my previous experience by working face to face not only with the Build Change technical teams, but also with local engineers in each country, to promote capacity building.” Learn more about Mwangi’s Fellowship experience here.
