S/HDB Holdown Bolted

Share This Post:


The S/HDB is designed to provide loads for high-load shearwalls, braced-wall panels and lateral applications and is ideal for bolt-on applications where the cold-formed steel stud manufacturer can prepunch the bolt holes. The holdown features a unique seat that greatly minimizes deflection under load. Designed for installation with bolts into the studs or column.

Key Features

  • Can be installed directly on the bottom track or raised above it and is suitable for back-to-back applications where eccentricity is a concern.
  • Features a unique seat design that greatly minimizes deflection under load.
  • The S/HDB model is designed for installation with bolts. Refer to the S/HDS model for attachment to post/column with screws.
