A: Hi JimM, this is Colin from Simpson Strong-Tie. The quantity on each joist will depend on the demand load (determined by the designer. However, in most cases it's one tie per joist to beam.

A: Hi Bud thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the H2.5A can be used with a rough 2x6 rafter/joist. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. Thank you-Colin.

A: 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!
