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.
