Quick Tie Products, Inc. recently released a video narrated by Bo Creel, President of EPCI Code Administration Services and Chief Building Official of Panama City, Florida.
The video surveys Mexico Beach, Florida, and the destruction left behind after Hurricane Michael devastated the region on October 10, 2018, and features a series of 16 townhomes that were constructed in 2006 and tied down utilizing the patented QuickTie™ system.
Josh Holman of Structural Technology of Northwest Florida came back to inspect the buildings after the storm, and shares his thoughts about the performance of the QuickTie™ system.
QuickTie™ is a simple, quick & economical tie down method for building stronger wood framed and masonry structures.
QuickTie™ was developed using post-tensioned concrete strengthening concepts. This innovative & highly engineered system provides robust hold down technology that keeps the full building secure even in the most severe winds. The testing, engineering and quality assurance has been performed an ANSI accredited agency. A final ANSI accredited technical evaluation report (a.k.a. ICC Report) was created to provide an intellectual property and professional engineering review to ensure section 104.11 compliance with all building code requirements.
At Quick Tie our goal is to provide all of our customers with the ability to make choices about the best product to use for a given application. If we have done our job well, we know that Quick Tie Products will be part of the connection selection process and we’ll win your business by our performance and the professional engineering that is provided through our QuickTie™ system and our ANSI 17065 report accreditor.
Helping make buildings the most hurricane resilient possible is what Quick Tie products are known to do.
