Strap Ties (ST/LSTA/MST/MSTA)
Straps are load rated and provide the correct thickness and number of fasteners the specifier is looking for compared with the field fabricated straps. Install Strap Ties where top or bottom plates are cut, at wall intersections, and as ridge ties. LSTA and MSTA straps are engineered for use on members with a minimum width of 1 1/2″. Reduce the allowable load based on the size and quantity of fasteners used.
Refer to applicable code for minimum edge and end distances.
