Beta House

Mr. Fred Yates of Fred Yates Home has agreed to a beta test for the new home he's constructing for himself on Lake View Dr, Gallatin. We will keep you posted on the developments of the house. Here's today's look. The first step for installing our hurricane tie-down system is to screw the anchor nut to the existing anchor bolt. It can be done now to secure the sill plate, or later when installing the complete system. Even though Gallatin Tennessee isn't in the hurricane zone, Mr. Yates home is on the lake which in prone to high winds. This high wind uplift protection will add less than 1/2 of one percent to the cost of his home.

Cable-Tite's first BLOG......

Hello, and welcome to Cable-Tite blog. This will keep you updated on all the latest news from the soon-to-be leader in hurricane tie-down anchors systems.

Cable-Tite started in 2007 when we were discussing the various hurricane clips and tie-down systems used to anchor home roofs to the foundations, currently on the market. Our engineers designed and patented a locking cap as seen on the website. The problem with other systems was the complex way of ordering correct parts, or the difficult way to install them properly. We've got a better "mouse trap"

We spent over a year testing and developing the product and final designs were first shown at the Nashville Home Show February, 2009. T-Rex stopped by to wish us well.
