Product Overview

The H2.5A single-sided hurricane tie is designed to resist moderate loads at the rafter/truss-to-top-plate connection. As part of a continuous load path, the H2.5A resists both lateral and uplift loads. The symmetrical design eliminates the need for separate right and left parts.
  • Embossments in bend line strengthen connection
  • The top flange features an arrow line indicator to aid correct installation
  • Made from 18-gauge steel
  • Galvanized (G90) for extra corrosion resistance
  • Install with (10) 0.131-in x 2-1/2-in nails or (10) #9 x 1-1/2-in Strong-Drive SD screws
  • Install with 8d common nails or 9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws
  • Note: product may vary by store

Do they make these in black?

Answer

The H2.5A is not offered in black. Thank you!

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

Asked by Ole September 16, 2020

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 only offered in one version as it is symmetrical (top and bottom) and can be flipped to be installed on either side of the rafter. (The now obsolete H2.5 was offered in left and right versions.) Thank you!

Is it one sided? Is there a left version and a right version, it doesn't seem flipping it over wo...

You can turn it left or right or up or down, depends on how the studs are situated but these may not be perfect fit all the time in the angle you want.
