Time and again, we see the havoc that high winds can wreak upon structures. However, we can take what we’ve learned and use it to design structures that can resist these forces and limit the structural damage caused by high-wind events.
Join us live on August 12 to learn about connectors and fasteners specifically designed to resist uplift forces caused by high winds. We will discuss the code requirements, continuous load path connections, and resources available to assist with both design and construction.
