About PHD

The PHD (Plated Hold Downs) is a wall anchoring system used in conventional light-framed construction projects. The PHD provides a continous load path from the top of the wall to the foundation.

PHD resists wind uplift axial loads as a hold-down anchor. It also resists uplift loads generated from laterally applied loads that create overturning uplift froces a a hold-doen anchor.
