Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, is expanding its slate of mass timber products with the introduction of the MTLD™ mass timber lifting device. With a quick attachment to a single screw anchored into a mass timber element, the MTLD saves time during the rigging process and provides a fast and efficient method for erecting panels and beams.
“We’re excited to support mass timber installers and rigging designers with the launch of this lifting device,” says Michael Weinert, senior product manager for Mass Timber and Offsite Construction at Simpson Strong-Tie. “Additionally, our team has authored a Lifting Device Design Guide to assist qualified designers with their detailed calculations and analysis.”
The galvanized steel MTLD is load rated for multiple screw options among which a qualified design professional may choose for specification, including the Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDCF Timber-CF (model SDCF27400 or SDCF27614) and Strong-Drive SDHR Combo-Head (model SDHR31614) screws.
