Z4 Tie-Down System for Lateral Loads



To resist tension loads due to overturning moments in multi-story buildings the CNX Cinch Nut is installed over a Bearing Plate Washer at each level in a fast and easy application. At the upper-most level a Cinch Nut is installed over a Bearing Plate Washer above the top plates. At walls below that bear on wood floor systems, the Cinch Nut and Bearing Plate Washer are installed over the bottom plate. Tension loads are gathered at each level and transferred into the foundation through a continuous system of Cinch Nuts, Bearing Plate Washers, Z-Rods/ATRs and Couplers all available from MiTek® Builder Products.
