Indianapolis – The Investment Casting Institute awarded Precision Casting of Tennessee, Inc. a finalist at their Awards Presentation, October 12, for the design and casting of Cable-Tite components. They were sighted for their contribution to the home building industry as they competed with manufacturers of aerospace, military, automotive, and medical castings for the casting industry’s highest honors.
“We knew we had a winner in the design of Cable-Tite. It’s so rewarding to have that confirmed by the industry” said T. Allen Bransford, President of PCT.
Cable-Tite is a patented hurricane tie-down system for securing the top plate to the foundation in new home construction. It offers protection from uplift caused by high winds. It was designed and tested to exceed building code requirements in high-wind regions of up to 150 MPH hurricane winds.
