Footing Tie Downs are needed when the vertical uplift of a building is requiring more than the self weight of the building to resist movement in the vertical direction. Wind loads and/or hydraulic loading will often be the design reason for footing tie downs.
The footing tie down anchor is typically installed upon footing excavation. A drilled and grouted anchor can achieve high loads per Lineal Foot, particularly when rock is the sub strata for the anchoring.
