Determine the necessary design load to be met and which cables are required:
QuickTie Blue (QTB): 3/16″
Allowable loads: 1,909 lbs.
QuickTie Green (QTG): 1/4″
Allowable loads: 2,839 lbs.
QuickTie Orange (QTO): 5/16″
Allowable loads: 4,455 lbs.
QuickTie Red (QTR): 3/8″
Allowable loads: 6,545 lbs.
Measure the distance from the from the foundation to the upper most top plate (on which the trusses bear). This dimension — QT”x” on the diagram to the left — is the QuickTie cable part required.
For example, a dimension of 9’1″ from foundation to top plate, for which a “Blue” cable is required, would require a QTB9.1 cable.
The following notes and details are provided for the convenience and support of the design professional’s incorporation of QuickTie™ cables in construction documents. They are provided both in PDF format and in DWG (AutoCAD) format. The DWG files may be modified to meet the specific needs of the project.
