Product Overview

Simpson Strong-Tie hurricane ties are designed to resist high winds and seismic forces by positively connecting trusses/rafters to the top of wall of the structure. These ties connect both solid-sawn and engineered lumber across a wide range of applications. Some hurricane tie models are available with additional corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications.

  • Great for connecting 2x deck joists on top of a perpendicular beam
  • Install in pairs on either side of the rafter/truss/joist to provide resistance to uplift and lateral forces
  • Use also for a variety of connections where one member crosses another
  • Made from 18-Gauge steel
  • ZMAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with 8d common nails or #9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws

Answer: 
Yes. I built a free standing patio cover "connected" not attached to a breezeway roof. The breezeway roof is not a support structure. I have piers and posts to support the top header rafter ends next to that breezeway roof that makes it free standing.. The rafters butt against the breezeway facia and all have the hurricane tie attached to the rafter and header or top beam. I then put Mule-Hide peel and Read More
Yes. I built a free standing patio cover "connected" not attached to a breezeway roof. The breezeway roof is not a support structure. I have piers and posts to support the top header rafter ends next to that breezeway roof that makes it free standing.. The rafters butt against the breezeway facia and all have the hurricane tie attached to the rafter and header or top beam. I then put Mule-Hide peel and stick to cover the roof as opposed to open air pergola. Either way whether the pergola is solid roofing or open air the hurricane is what you want to use to "tie" the rafters to your facia. Hope this helps. There are not many applications where people attach or butt the pergola rafters to the facia. I did not want to cut into my roof to attach it, so it is low sloped. Read Less

Answer: 
Most pergolas are rough cedar which will not fit in one of these strong ties as it is usually 1.75 inches at least in thickness. Pergolas are usually free standing and not directly attached to your house.

Answer: 
We can provide the capacities and complete information (fasteners, dimensions, etc.) for our various connectors, but it is up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate connector for the specific application based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc. Thank you!

Answer: 
Yes. Your rafter sits on top of the header. Depending on the length of the rafter you may need to add blocking between the rafters to keep everything straight.

Answer: 
It is up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate connector based on the framing layout, demand loads, local building codes. This tie is designed/rated to resist uplift and lateral loads. If you are actually looking for a hanger to connect the rafter to the face of the header, you may want to see a hanger such as the field adjustable LSU26. Thank you!

Answer: 
You only need a bird's mouth cut if all of the rafter is not evenly supported on the header or top beam. If you have a slope you may need a bird's mouth cut on any rafter that is not equally supported. For a steep slope then yes. Low slope may require a very small bird's mouth.

Years back we had a note in our catalog stating that a birdsmouth cut was not required with the H1 Hurricane Tie. This note led to some confusion and has since been removed. They are rated for uplift and lateral loads and can be installed without a birdsmouth cut; however, they do not play any part in transferring download.

They are rated for uplift and lateral loads and can be installed without a birdsmouth cut; however, they do not play any part in transferring download. With this in mind, if no birdsmouth cut exists, some sort of solid full shim must be inserted between the truss/rafter and the top of the wall to transfer download bearing force. The shimming would need to be designed by the engineer of record. The VPA is the only product we offer that would have download capacity without a birdsmouth cut or shimming. Thank you! Read Less

Answer: 
The H1Z is sized for a nominal 2x member (1 1/2" actual) and has a 1 9/16" opening. You might consider a single sided H Tie or the H10AR which has a 2" opening. It would be up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate tie based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc. Thank you!
