Product Details

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. The H1 is designed for nominal 2x lumber. This U-shaped hurricane tie provides faster installation than using two single-sided ties. The embossments add stiffness in crucial areas for improved performance.
  • Holds the rafter or truss on both sides for high lateral load resistance
  • Used for a variety of connections where one member crosses another
  • Can be installed on inside or outside of wall, or both sides
  • Can be installed with flanges facing either inward or outward
  • Made from 18-gauge steel
  • ZMAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with (6) 0.131 in. x 1-1/2 in. nails to rafters/truss and (4) 0.131 x 2-1/2 in. nails to plates, OR (6) #9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws to rafters/truss and (4) #9 x 1-1/2 in. SD screws to plates

        Q:A joist sits on header beam flat. Can you use these to attach a rafter that is sitting at an angle?

        A:  yes

        by|Jul 13, 2022

          A:  Because there is no “floor” plate to the hanger, I was able to tie in all my angles rafters in my wood shed. The attachment holes are located such that angled rafters posed no problem.

            A:  Hi ELJames, this is Colin again from Simpson Strongtie. The H1Z hurricane tie can be used to connect a horizontal floor joist to a dropped beam or connect a sloping dimensional 2x (1-1/2") rafter that bears on a horizontal beam or a double 2x top wall plate. The rafter will require a "birds mouth" or seat cut. On strongtie.com enter H1 in the Search Strongtie.com field, Click on the H1 result then click on the gallery images for typical installation details. You can also view the required fasteners and the allowable load values. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.​​

                      I have been using these for rafter stays to put 2by4s in so I can lay rafters across them on a shed roof or patio awning . Works perfectly. Now I'm not sure what they're designed for. But in my application it keeps me from having to cut out a bird mouth to set a simple roof line .

                      Very Strong
                      We decided to use these on our outdoor pavilion.. Easy to use with straight or notched rafters...We used them for a notched overhanging rafter. Not sure they would work very well for a flush mount unless you had extra lumber at the bottom for the mounting screws.... Easily spray painted to match your color scheme..
