Questions & Answers

9Questions16Answers

Could they be installed on the inside of the top plate, in existing structure?

Asked by Ole September 16, 2020
1
Answer

Hurricane ties are shown on the outside of the wall for clarity and assume a minimum overhang of 3 1/2". Installation on the inside of the wall is acceptable. (When installing hurricane ties on the inside of the wall special considerations must be taken to prevent condensation on the inside of the completed structure in cold climates.). For uplift continuous load path, install connectors in the same area (e.g., truss-to-plate connector and plate-to-stud connector) on the same side of the wall, unless detailed by designer. Thank you!

The H2.5A is not offered with a 45 degree angle. Please contact the Engineering Support Department at your regional Simpson Strong-Tie branch to discuss possible options - 800/999-5099. Thank you!
