Prevent Corrosion

Deck-Drive DWP stainless-steel fasteners are recommended for higher-exposure environments or applications

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. These ties connect both solid-sawn and engineered lumber across a wide range of applications. Some hurricane tie models are available with additional corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications.
  • Great for connecting 2x deck joists on top of a perpendicular beam
  • Install in pairs on either side of the rafter/truss/joist to provide resistance to uplift and lateral forces
  • Use also for a variety of connections where one member crosses another
  • Made from 18-gauge steel
  • Stainless steel for high/severe corrosion resistance
  • Install with stainless steel 8d common nails or #9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive® SD screws

Questions & Answers


Are these 316 grade Stainless steel?

Asked by LV October 30, 2019

Yes, our stainless steel connectors are made from Type 316 Stainless Steel. Thank you!

What is the difference in the H2.5A and the H2.5AZ

Asked by Harold June 1, 2019

H2.5A: Standard G90 Zinc Galvanized Coating contains 0.90 oz. of zinc per square foot of surface area (total both sides). This coating provides a low level of corrosion resistance and should be used in dry environments. Level of Corrosion Resistance: Low H2.5AZ: ZMax® Coating is a thicker coating (galvanized per ASTM A653 with a G185 coating) than the standard hot-dip galvanized coating (galvanized per ASTM A653 with a G90 coating). This thicker coating is available on select Simpson Strong-Tie connectors. Due to this increased galvanized thickness these connectors would be expected to have a longer service life than standard galvanized connectors. Level of Corrosion Resistance: Medium

Does the H2.5ASS clips require a left and right if used in pairs?

Asked by tato November 29, 2017

There is no left and right version of the H2.5ASS hurricane tie. It can be installed on either side of the rafter/truss (or both, as specified by the designer). On one side of the rafter/truss the upper flange of the H2.5A will extend away from the plates and on the other side the upper flange will extend towards (over) the plates.

Is there a left and right for Mod.# H2.5ASS hurricane clip? If so how do I specify on order?

Asked by Charlie May 2, 2012

I think you just need to order a few and see how they fit. If You are ever in or around DI al i would be glad to lend you a few. they are all the same no left or right
