Prevent Corrosion

Deck-Drive DWP stainless-steel fasteners are recommended for higher-exposure environments or applications

Not only do angles make joints stronger, they also provide more consistent, straight corners. Simpson Strong-Tie offers a wide variety of angles in various sizes and thicknesses to handle light-duty jobs or projects where a structural connection is needed. Some can be bent (skewed) to match the project. For outdoor projects or those where moisture is present, use our ZMAX zinc-coated connectors, which provide extra resistance against corrosion (look for a "Z" at the end of the model number).
  • Versatile connector for various 90° connections and home repair projects
  • Stronger than angled nailing or screw fastening alone
  • Help ensure joints are consistently straight and strong
  • A35's exclusive bend slot allows accurate bends to attach wood in a variety of configurations
  • Dimensions: 1-7/16 in. x 1-7/16 in. x 4-1/2 in.
  • Made from 18-Gauge steel
  • ZMAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with 8d x 1-1/2 in. nails or #9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws

The A35Z can be used to secure a great variety of connections, but it would be 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!

what's the difference between a35z and a35

Asked by skyhigh June 26, 2020
1
Answer

The difference is the finish. The A35 has the standard G90 galvanized finish which provides a low level of corrosion protection and the A35Z has the Z-MAX G185 galvanized finish which provides a medium level of corrosion protection. Please see the Corrosion section of our website to determine the recommended finish for your application: https://www.strongtie.com/solutions/corrosion. Thank you!

It may not be so large and thick as i expected but it does the job. It does fasten the 6×6 posts with the deck frame solidly together. Looks good, too.
