The Strong-Rod Anchor Tiedown System for shearwall overturning restraint (ATS) and Strong-Rod Uplift Restraint System for roofs (URS) address many of the design challenges specifically associated with mid-rise buildings that must withstand seismic activity or wind events. These systems are designed to restrain both lateral and uplift loads, while maintaining reasonable costs on material and labor.
