AS1684 Series – Part 3 Tie downs and Connections

The third webinar of this AS1684 series focuses on the key requirements for tie-downs and connections in residential homes and will be delivered by Tim Rossiter.

Tim provides a guide to correct tie-downs in accordance with AS1684, extending from load determination to selection of the appropriate connection fixed in the appropriate manner. Included will be some practical guidance on interpreting “engineer-speak” to assist visualisation when wind loading is an occasional load event.
