STANDARD COATING G90
(Galvanized G90) .90 oz. of zinc per square foot of surface area. Simpson Strong-Tie began producing connectors
in G90 when we started participation in markets outside the United States. The minimum standard for
galvanization in the United States has long been G60 where the minimum for most of the world equates to
G90. Initially we produced product in G90 specifically for these international markets, but in the late 90s
we decided to produce all our structural products with the higher level of zinc coating.
Galvanized (G185) 1.85 oz. of zinc per square foot of surface area (per ASTM A653 total both
sides). Z-MAX meets all catalog load specifications listed for the regular products and all
published building code reports. These products require hot-dip galvanized fasteners.

TM

Products are hot-dip galvanized after fabrication. The coating weight increases with material
thickness. Hot-dip galvanizing is available for many products. The minimum specified coating
weight is 2.0 oz./ft2 (per ASTM A123 total both sides). These products require hot-dip
galvanized fasteners (fasteners galvanized per ASTM A153).
Products are manufactured from Type 316L stainless steel, and provide greater durability
against corrosion. Stainless steel nails are required with stainless steel products, and are
available from Simpson.

CORROSION INFORMATION
UNDERSTANDING THE ISSUES
Metal connectors, anchors, and fasteners will corrode and may lose loadcarrying capacity when installed in corrosive environments or exposed to
corrosive materials. There are many environments and materials which may
cause corrosion including ocean salt air, fire-retardants, fumes, fertilizers,
preservative-treated wood, dissimilar metals, and other corrosive elements.
The many variables present in a single building environment make it impossible
to accurately predict if, or when, significant corrosion will begin or reach a
critical level. This relative uncertainty makes it crucial that specifiers and users
be knowledgeable of the potential risks and select a product coating or metal
suitable for the intended use. It is also important that regular maintenance and
periodic inspections are performed, especially for outdoor applications.
It is common to see some corrosion on connectors especially in outdoor
applications. Even Stainless Steel can corrode. The presence of some corrosion
does not mean that load capacity has necessarily been affected or that a failure
will occur. If significant corrosion is apparent or suspected, then the wood,
fasteners and connectors should be inspected by a professional engineer or
general contractor and may need to be replaced.
In the last several years, pressure treated wood formulations have changed
significantly. Many of the new formulations are more corrosive to steel connectors and fasteners than the traditionally used formulation of CCA-C.
Simpson testing has shown that ACQ-C, ACQ-D (Carbonate), CBA-A and CA-B
treated woods are approximately 2 times more corrosive than CCA-C, while

See www.strongtie.com/info for additional critical information.


SBX-DOT (Sodium Borate) treated woods were shown to be less corrosive than
CCA-C. (See Technical Bulletin T-PTWOOD04-R for details).
Due to the many different pressure treatment formulations, fluctuating retention
levels, and because the formulations may vary regionally, or change without
warning, understanding which connectors and fasteners to use with these
materials has become a complex task. We have attempted to provide basic
knowledge on the subject here, but it is important to fully educate yourself by
reviewing our technical bulletins on the topic, and also by viewing information
and literature provided by others. Additionally, because the issue is evolving,
it is important to get the very latest connector information on the topic by
visiting our website at www.strongtie.com/info.
Stainless Steel is always the most effective solution to corrosion risk. However,
it is also more expensive and sometimes more difficult to obtain. To best serve
our customers, Simpson is evaluating the options to identify the safest and
most cost-effective solutions. Based on our testing and experience there are
some specific applications that are appropriate for ZMAX/HDG or G90
connectors (see chart below.)
Because increased corrosion from some newer pressure-treated wood is a new
issue with little historical data, we have to base our recommendations on the
testing and experience we have to date. It is possible that as we learn more,
our recommendations may change, but these recommendations are based on
the best information we have at this time.

GENERAL SIMPSON RECOMMENDATIONS


Outdoor environments are generally more corrosive to steel. If you choose
to use ZMAX or HDG on an outdoor project (i.e. deck, patio cover), you
should periodically inspect your connectors and fasteners or have a professional inspection performed. Regular maintenance including water-proofing
of the wood used in your outdoor project is also a good practice.
For wood with actual retention levels greater than 0.40 pcf for ACQ, 0.41
pcf for CBA-A, or 0.21 pcf for CA-B (Ground Contact), Stainless Steel
connectors and fasteners are recommended. Verify actual retention level
with the wood treater.
When using Stainless Steel connectors, use Stainless Steel fasteners.
When using ZMAX/HDG galvanized connectors, use fasteners galvanized
per ASTM A153.

Testing indicates wood installed dry reduces potential corrosion. If dry wood
is used, see our website for additional information.
Using a barrier membrane can provide additional corrosion protection, see
Technical Bulletin T-PTBARRIER04.
Due to the many variables involved, Simpson cannot provide estimates on service
life of connectors, anchors or fasteners. We suggest that all users and specifiers
also obtain recommendations for HDG, ZMAX (G185), mechanically galvanized, or
other coatings from the treated wood supplier for the type of wood used. However,
as long as Simpsons recommendations are followed, Simpson stands behind its
product performance and our standard warranty (page 4) applies.

GUIDELINES FOR SELECTING THE PROPER CONNECTOR


1

Evaluate the Application.

Consider the type of structure and how it will be used. These recommendations
may not apply to non-structural applications such as fences.

Catalog C-2005 Copyright 2004 SIMPSON STRONG-TIE CO., INC.

Evaluate the Environment

Testing and experience indicate that indoor dry environments are less corrosive
than outdoor environments. Determining the type of environment where a
connector or fastener will be used is an important factor in selecting the most
appropriate material and finish for use on the connectors and fasteners. To help
in your decision making, consider the following general exposure information:
Interior Dry Use: Includes wall and ceiling cavities, and raised floor applications
of enclosed buildings that have been designed to ensure that condensation and
other sources of moisture do not develop.
Exterior - Dry: Includes outdoor installations in low rainfall environments
and no regular exposure to moisture.
Exterior - Wet: Includes outdoor installations in higher moisture and rainfall
environments.
Higher Exposure Use: Includes exposure to ocean salt air, large bodies of water,
fumes, fertilizers, soil, some preservative treated woods, industrial zones, acid
rain, and other corrosive elements.
Evaluate and select a suitable pressure-treated wood for the intended
application and environment.
The treated wood supplier should provide all the information needed regarding
the wood being used. This information should include: the specific type of wood
treatment used, if ammonia was used in the treatment, and the chemical retention
level. If the needed information is not provided then Simpson would recommend
the use of Stainless Steel connectors and fasteners. You should also ask the
treated wood supplier for a connector coating or material recommendation.

Low = Use Simpson standard painted and G90 galvanized connectors


as a minimum.
Med = Use ZMAX/HDG galvanized connectors as a minimum. Use
fasteners galvanized per ASTM A153.
High = Use Type 304 or 316 Stainless Steel connectors and fasteners.

1. Woods with actual retention levels greater than 0.40 pcf for ACQ, 0.41 pcf for
CBA-A, or 0.21 pcf for CA-B (Ground Contact level).
2. Borate treated woods are not appropriate for outdoor use.
3. Test results indicate that ZMAX/HDG will perform adequately, subject to regular
maintenance and periodic inspection. However, the nationally-approved
test method used, AWPA E12-94, is an accelerated test, so data over an
extended period of time is not available. If uncertain, use Stainless Steel.
4. Some treated wood may have excess surface chemicals making it potentially
more corrosive. If you suspect this or are uncertain, use Stainless Steel.

Use the chart on the right, which was created based on Simpsons testing
and experience to select the connector finish or material.
If a pressure treated wood product is not identified on the chart, Simpson has
not evaluated test results regarding such product and therefore cannot make
any recommendation other than the use of Stainless Steel with that product.
Manufacturers may independently provide test results or other product use
information; Simpson expresses no opinion regarding any such information.

5 Compare the treated wood supplier's recommendation with


the Simpson recommendation.
If these recommendations are different, Simpson recommends that the most
conservative recommendation be followed.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION & GENERAL NOTES


We have a feature in our catalog tablesa "Quick-Code" Reference column.
This column allows users to quickly locate which products have code listings and which
code agency has issued the report. We've added this feature to our catalog to help our
customers easily access the information they need regarding our products. Over the years,
the number of products we offer has greatly increased, and the number of code reports
we have has also increased. At the same time, there have been many changes over the
years in the code agencies themselves. All of these factors have made it increasingly
difficult for our customers to determine which codes apply to various products.
The Quick-Code reference column, used in conjunction with the chart at right, allows
you to easily see which code listing applies to a product. The reference numbers also
clearly identify:

Simpson Strong-Tie Co., Inc. reserves the right to change specifications, designs, and
models without notice or liability for such changes.
Steel used for each Simpson product is individually selected based on the product's
steel specifications, including strength, thickness, formability, finish, and weldability.
Contact factory for steel information on specific products.
Unless otherwise noted, dimensions are in inches, loads are in pounds.
Unless otherwise noted, bolts and nails may not be combined to achieve highest load
value. 8d, 10d, and 16d specify common nails. When a shorter nail is specified, it will
be noted (for example 8dx1). Refer to page 14 and 15 for more nail info.
Unless otherwise noted, allowable loads are for Douglas Fir-Larch under continuously
dry conditions. Allowable loads for other species or conditions must be adjusted
according to the code. In many cases, Simpson code reports will indicate loads derived
from Doug Fir header material only. However under ICC-ES AC13, loads for Douglas Fir
are the same as LVL, LSL, PSL, Glulams and Southern Pine, since the specific gravity of
these wood species fall within the specific gravity range of the AC13 criteria. The chart
below gives specific gravity for the different wood species as listed by NDS (National
Design Specifications). For your convenience we have placed the section from the AC13
criteria indicating the range of specific gravity. 4.2.3 The species of lumber used shall
have a specific gravity of 0.49 or greater, such as Douglas fir, but not greater than 0.55
as determined in accordance with the NDS.

Simpson Strong-Tie Co., Inc. will manufacture non-catalog products provided prior
approval is obtained and an engineering drawing is included with the order. Steel
specified on the drawings as ", ", and " will be 11 gauge (0.120"), 7 ga (0.179"),
and 3 gauge (0.239"), respectively. The minimum yield and tensile strengths are 33 ksi
and 52 ksi, respectively.
All references to bolts or machine bolts (MBs) are for structural quality through bolts
(not lag screws) equal to or better than American Society of Testing and Materials ASTM
Standard A307, Grade A. RFB is A307, Grade C; SSTB is ASTM A36.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE INSTALLER

Catalog C-2005 Copyright 2004 SIMPSON STRONG-TIE CO., INC.

a.

All specified fasteners must be installed according to the instructions in this catalog.
Incorrect fastener quantity, size, type, material, or finish may cause the connection
to fail. 16d fasteners are common nails (8 ga x 3") and cannot be replaced with
16d sinkers (9 ga x 3") for full load value unless otherwise specified.
b. Bolt holes shall be at least a minimum of " and no more than a maximum of
" larger than the bolt diameter (per the 2001 NDS 11.1.2).
c. Install all specified fasteners before loading the connection.
d. Some hardened fasteners may have premature failure if exposed to moisture. The
fasteners are recommended to be used in dry interior applications.
e. Use proper safety equipment.
f. Welding galvanized steel may produce harmful fumes; follow proper welding

i.
j.

k.

l.

m.

n.
o.
p.

q.
r.

Unless otherwise noted, bending steel in the field may cause fractures at the bend line.
Fractured steel will not carry load and must be replaced.
A fastener that splits the wood will not take the design load. Evaluate splits to determine
if the connection will perform as required. Dry wood may split more easily and
should be evaluated as required. If wood tends to split, consider pre-boring holes
with diameters not exceeding .75 of the nail diameter (2001 NDS 11.1.5.3).
Wood shrinks and expands as it loses and gains moisture, particularly perpendicular
to its grain. Take wood shrinkage into account when designing and installing
connections. Simpson manufactures products to fit common dry lumber dimensions.
If you need a connector with dimensions other than those listed in this catalog,
Simpson may be able to vary connector dimensions; contact the factory. The
effects of wood shrinkage are increased in multiple lumber connections, such as
floor-to-floor installations. This may result in the vertical rod nuts becoming loose,
requiring post-installation tightening.
Top flange hangers may cause unevenness. Possible remedies should be evaluated
by a professional and include using a face mount hanger, and routering the beam or
cutting the subfloor to accommodate the top flange thickness.
Built-up lumber (multiple members) must be fastened together to act as one unit to
resist the applied load (excluding the connector fasteners). This must be determined
by the designer/engineer of record.
Do Not Overload. Do not exceed catalog allowable loads, which would jeopardize
the connection.
Some model configurations may differ from those shown in this catalog. Contact
factory for details.
Hanger Options (page 164) some combinations of hanger options are not available.
In some cases, combinations of these options may not be installable. Horizontal loads
induced by sloped joists must be resisted by other members in the structural system.
A qualified designer must always evaluate each connection, including carried and
carrying member limitations, before specifying the product. Fill all fastener holes
with fastener types specified in the tables, unless otherwise noted. Hanger configurations, height, and fastener schedules may vary from the tables depending on joist size,
skew and slope. See the allowable table load for the non-modified hanger, and adjust
as indicated. Gauge may vary from that specified depending on the manufacturing
process used. U and W hangers normally have single stirrups; occasionally, the seat
may be welded. B, GLT, HGLT, HW, LBV, W and WNP hangers for sloped seat installations are assumed backed. To order a custom non-backed hanger, contact the factory.
Simpson will calculate the net height for a sloped seat. The customer must
provide the H1 joist height before slope.
Truss plates shown are not manufactured by Simpson.

procedures and safety precautions. Welding should be in accordance with A.W.S.


standards. Unless otherwise noted Simpson connectors cannot be welded.
g. Pneumatic or powder-actuated fasteners may deflect and injure the operator or others.
Pneumatic nail tools may be used to install connectors, provided the correct quantity
and type of nails are properly installed in the nail holes. Tools with nail hole-locating
mechanisms should be used. Follow the manufacturer's instructions and use the
appropriate safety equipment. Over driving nails may reduce allowable loads.
Contact Simpson.
h. Joist shall bear completely on the connector seat, and the gap between the joist end
and the header shall not exceed per ASTM D1761 test standards.
i. For holdowns, anchor bolt nuts should be finger-tight plus to turn with a wrench,
with consideration given to possible future wood shrinkage. Care should be taken to
not over-torque the nut. This may preload the holdown.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE DESIGNER


The allowable load is limited to the lowest of " deflection, lowest test ultimate/
3 times factor of safety or calculation value.
b. Allowable simultaneous loads in more than one direction on a single connector
must be evaluated as follows:
Design Uplift/Allowable Uplift + Design Lateral Parallel to Plate/Allowable
Lateral Parallel to Plate + Design Lateral Perpendicular to Plate/Allowable
Lateral Perpendicular to Plate < 1.0.
c. Loads are based on the 2001 National Design Specifications (NDS), unless
otherwise specified. Other code agencies may use different allowable loads.
d. Duration of load adjustments for fasteners into wood as specified by the code are
as follows:
FLOOR and DOWN (100) no increase for duration of load.
SNOW (115) 115% of design load for 2 month duration of load.
ROOF LOAD (125) 125% of design load for 7 day duration of load.
EARTHQUAKE/WIND (133 and 160) 133% and 160% of design load
for earthquake/wind loading.
e. Unless otherwise noted wood shear is not considered in the loads given; reduce
allowable loads when wood shear is limiting. Glulam 145 psi, LVL 285 psi,
LSL 285 psi, PSL 290 psi; E = 1.3x106 psi.
f. Simpson strongly recommends the following addition to construction drawings
and specifications: Simpson Strong-Tie connectors are specifically required to
meet the structural calculations of plan. Before substituting another brand,
confirm load capacity based on reliable published testing data or calculations.
a.

The Engineer/Designer of Record should evaluate and give written approval for
substitution prior to installation.
g. Verify that the dimensions of the supporting member are sufficient to receive the
specified fasteners, and develop the top flange bearing length.
h. Some catalog illustrations show connections that could cause cross-grain tension
or bending of the wood during loading if not sufficiently reinforced. In this case,
mechanical reinforcement should be considered.
i. For holdowns, anchor bolt nuts should be finger-tight plus to turn with a wrench,
with consideration given to possible future wood shrinkage. Care should be taken to
not over-torque the nut.
j. Simpson will provide, upon request, code testing data on all products that have
been code tested.
k. The allowable loads published in this catalog are for use when utilizing the traditional
Allowable Stress Design methodology. A method for using Load and Resistance
Factor Design (LRFD) for wood has been published in AF&PA/ASCE 16-95. When
designing with LRFD, reference lateral resistances must be used. Contact Simpson for
reference lateral resistances of products listed in this catalog. For more information,
refer to the American Forest and Paper Association Guideline to Pre-engineered Metal
Connectors and ASCE 16-95. The Guideline contains a soft-conversion procedure
that can be used to derive reference lateral resistances.
l. Simpson recommends that hanger height be at least 60% of joist height for stability.
m. The term Designer used throughout this catalog is intended to mean a
licensed professional engineer or licensed architect.

HOW WE DETERMINE
ALLOWABLE LOADS
Allowable loads in this catalog are
determined using calculations and/
or one or more of the following
methods:
a minimum of 3 static load
tests in wood assemblies;
a minimum of 3 static load
tests in steel jigs;
a minimum of 3 static load
tests of products embedded
in concrete or masonry.
Some tests include only portions
of a product such as purlin anchor
testsonly the embedded hook is
tested, not the nailed or bolted section of the strap, which is calculated.
Testing to determine allowable
loads in this catalog is not done on
connection systems in buildings.
Testing is conducted under the
supervision of an independent
laboratory. Typically the allowable
load is limited to the lowest of "
deflection, lowest test ultimate/
3 times factor of safety or
calculation value.
For detailed information regarding
how Simpson tests specific
products, contact Simpson.

This icon identifies products that can be ordered with additional corrosion
protection (ZMAX, Hot-Dip Galvanized or Stainless Steel). See page 5 for

Average Ultimate (AVG ULT): The average of the highest (ultimate) loads that are
achieved when we static load test one of our products to destruction. We static test
a product three or more times with similar test configurations to obtain ultimate load
measurements. The average ultimate load is listed for only one configuration and
direction in tables that show multiple configurations, load directions or fastener
combinations. Average Ultimate load should not be used for design purposes.

OTHER CATALOG
DEFINITIONS
Deflection: The distance
a point moves when a
load is applied.

Recent changes in building codes and standards have affected the way
allowable loads on some connectors are determined when using Allowable
Stress Design. Building codes and material standards have traditionally
allowed designers and manufacturers to take a one-third stress increase on
the calculated design capacities of some building materials and components
when designing for forces generated from wind and seismic events.
Specifically, the codes allowed Simpson Strong-Tie to take a one-third stress
increase on the calculated tensile capacity of steel connectors.
Newer codes and standards only allow steel stress increase when using an
alternate set of load combinations. For example, the International Building Code
and Uniform Building Code do not allow a stress increase when designing with
the Basic load combinations of Allowable Stress Design. However, these codes
do allow the use of a stress increase when using the Alternate (or Alternative)
basic load combinations, as long as the referenced material standard/section
permits it. The NFPA 5000 and the ASCE7-02 do not have Alternate basic load
combinations, so stress increases are not permitted.
Simpson Strong Tie determines allowable loads in accordance with building
codes and steel design standards (AISI and AISC). In the past, these steel
standards have permitted the use of a one-third stress increase when designing
for wind and seismic forces. However, the latest editions of these standards
have discontinued that practice.

12

Because of these changes, Simpson Strong-Tie re-evaluated its entire


product line to determine which loads were governed by calculated steel
strength and included an allowable stress increase on the steel. The majority
of Simpson Strong-Tie's products were not affected, since their allowable
load is governed by a tested value, not a calculated value. Those products
which were affected are shown with their revised capacities with no steel
stress increase.

Additionally, it must be clarified that the load duration factors for wood
permitted by the National Design Specification for Wood Construction are
separate and distinct from the one-third stress increase. Load duration
factors for wood are permitted to be used in design calculations for all
load combinations in the codes and standards covered by this catalog.
For that reason there will be loads listed that include a load duration increase
for wood or fasteners in wood, such as 1.33 or 1.6 for wind or seismic

The new BP-3 and BP-3 Bearing Plates meet the latest requirements of the International
Residential Code, (see 2004 IRC Supplement to section R602.11.1 Wall Anchorage). These
plate washers are available uncoated or with a hot dip galvanized (HDG) finish.
The BPSKT uses SDS x 1 screws to provide lateral resistance when diameter sill holes
are overdrilled (screws are provided). The shear capacity is 975 lbs. (100%) and 1300 lbs. (133%)
for DFL. Bearing Plates give greater bearing surface than standard cut washers, and help distribute
the load at these critical connections.

HIGH STRENGTH
ANCHORING ADHESIVES

Simpson Strong-Tie now offers two types of high-strength adhesive


anchoring cartridge systems. Epoxy-Tie adhesives are two-component,
low-odor, 1:1 ratio, 100% solids epoxy based adhesives. Simpson's
Acrylic-Tie is a two-component, 10:1 ratio, acrylic based adhesive.
Acrylic-Tie's innovative chemistry allows easy dispensing, cures at
temperatures down to 0 F, as well as fast cure at temperatures at or
above 40F. Both systems feature simultaneous dispensing of resin
and hardener/initiator through a static mixing nozzle (except SET-PAC).
APPLICATION: Surfaces to receive adhesive should be clean.
For epoxy products, the base material temperature must be
40 F or above at the time of application. For best results the
adhesive should be 70-80 F at the time of application.
For Acrylic-Tie the base material must be 0F or above at the
time of installation.
To warm cold epoxy cartridges before use, place them in a uniformly
heated area for a sufficient time to allow epoxy to warm completely.
Do not immerse the cartridges in water to facilitate warming.
Mixed epoxy material in the nozzle can harden in 5-7 min. at 40 F.
Mixed epoxy material can harden in SET-PAC or the nozzle in 5-7 min.
INSTALLATION (Epoxy-Tie and Acrylic-Tie): Drill hole to specified
diameter and depth. Always wear safety glasses.
Remove dust from the hole with oil-free compressed air. Clean with
nylon brush and blow out remaining dust. Dust left in the hole will
reduce the adhesive's holding capacity.
Before using, dispense a bead of adhesive off to the side to check for
proper mixing, indicated by a uniform gray color. Fill hole halfway,
starting from the bottom of the hole to avoid air pockets. Withdraw
nozzle as hole fills up.
Anchors must be clean and oil-free. Insert anchor, turning slowly until
the anchor hits the bottom of the hole. Do not disturb during cure time.

ANCHOR FOR
CONCRETE & MASONRY
ANCHOR SYSTEMS TITEN HD THREADED

The Titen HD is a patented, high-strength threaded anchor for concrete and masonry. The self-undercutting, non-expansion
characteristics of the Titen HD makes it the ideal anchor for structural applications, even at minimum edge distances and under
reduced spacing conditions. The proprietary cutting teeth enable the Titen HD to be installed in significantly less time than
traditional expansion anchors, and at significantly reduced installation torques. This heat-treated anchor undercuts the concrete
to form a strong mechanical interlock over the entire length of the anchor. The anchor can be installed with a standard ANSI
masonry drill bit and is removable. The Titen HD is recommended for permanent dry, non-corrosive applications or
temporary outdoor applications. Some types of pressure treated woods and fire-retardant woods are known to be especially
caustic to zinc and can cause fasteners to deteriorate. Zinc coated fasteners should not be placed in contact with treated
wood unless the treated wood is adequately verified to be suitable for such contact. See the Simpson website and contact
the wood supplier for additional information.

For complete technical information please refer to our Anchor Systems


Catalog or the Titen HD Brochure (F-SAS-THD03).

US Patent
5,674,035

Anchors

FEATURES:
Higher load capacity and vibration resistance: Threads along
the length of the anchor efficiently transfer the load to the base
material.
Less spacing and edge distance required: The anchor does
not exert expansion forces on the base material.
No special drill bit needed: Designed to install using standard
sized drill bits.
Installs with 50% less torque: Testing shows that when compared
with a major competitor, the Titen HD requires 50% less torque to
be installed in concrete.
Less installation time: No secondary setting or torquing is required.
Stamped Hex-washer head: Requires no separate washer and
provides a clean installed appearance. The head is stamped with
the Simpson
sign and the anchor length in inches for easy
inspection. (Some local building jurisdictions may require a
seperate washer.)
Removable: Ideal for temporary anchoring (e.g. formwork,
bracing) or applications where fixtures may need to be moved.
Mechanical galvanized coating is available. Refer to page 5
for corrosion information.

b) higher loads, c) lower installed cost, or a combination of these features.

The Predeflected Holdown (PHD) is a revolutionary development


in holdown connections. Predeflected during manufacturing, the PHD
virtually eliminates deflection from material stretch.
PHD SPECIAL FEATURES:
Wood screws reduce slip due to overdrilled bolt holes.
Smaller centerline reduces eccentricity in the stud.
No stud bolts to countersink.
The slot in the seat provides anchor bolt adjustment.
Fits easily on a 4x stud.
MATERIAL: See table. FINISH: Galvanized.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Place the PHD or HDQ8 over the anchor bolt.
HDQ8: " of adjustability perpendicular to the wall.
HDQ8: 1" center line for reduced eccentricity.
HDQ8: Use in vertical and horizontal applications.
Install Simpson's code-recognized SDSx3 wood screws,
which are provided with the holdown.
(Lag screws will not achieve the same load.)
For an improved connection, use a steel nylon locking nut
or a thread adhesive on the anchor bolt. (No washer required.)
See SSTB Anchor Bolts, page 24, for anchorage options. The design
engineer may specify any alternate anchorage calculated to resist
the tension load for a specific job. Anchorage length should take the
bearing plate/washer height into account, to ensure adequate length
of threads to engage the nut. For 3x sill plates use SSTBL.
To tie double 2x members together, the Designer must
determine the fasteners required to bind members to act
as one unit without splitting the wood.
See Simpson Anchor Systems for tested, load-rated anchors
and request T-Anchorspec for more information.

Holdowns are used to transfer tension loads between floors, to tie


purlins to masonry or concrete, etc. Use HDAs and HDs for overturning
requirements and other applications to transfer tension loads. All HDAs
and the HD15 are self-jigging, ensuring code-required minimum 7 bolt
diameter spacing from the end of the wood member to the center of the
first bolt hole.
HD6A, HD8A, HD10A and HD14As seat design allows greater
installation adjustability. An overall width of 3" for the HD6A, HD8A and
HD10A, and 3" for the HD14A provides an easy fit in a standard 4x wall.

INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Contact engineered wood manufacturers for connections
that are not through the wide face.
For an improved connection, use a steel nylon locking nut or a
thread adhesive on the anchor bolt.
Bolt holes shall be a minimum of " to a maximum of "
larger than the bolt diameter (per 2001 NDS, section 11.1.2).
Standard washers are required between the base plate and anchor
nut (HD15 only), and on stud bolt nuts against the wood. The
Load Transfer Plate is an integral part of the HDA Holdown and
no washer is required. See page 17 for BP/LBP Bearing Plates.
See SSTB Anchor Bolts, Simpsons Anchoring Systems and
Additional Anchorage Designs for anchorage options. The design
engineer may specify any alternate anchorage calculated to resist
the tension load for a specific job.
Locate on wood member to maintain a minimum distance of
seven bolt diameters, distance is automatically maintained when
end of wood member is flush with the bottom of the holdown.
Stud bolts should be snugly tightened.
To tie double 2x members together, the Designer must
determine the fasteners required to bind members to act
as one unit without splitting the wood.

7. Lag bolts will not develop the listed loads.
8. See page 11 for testing and other important information.
9. Deflection at Highest Allowable Design Load:
The deflection of a holdown measured between the anchor bolt and the strap portion
of the holdown when loaded to the highest allowable load listed in the catalog table.
This movement is strictly due to the holdown deformation under a static load test
conducted on a steel jig. All other sources of deflection shall be in addition.
10. When using structural composite lumber columns, screws must be applied to the
wide face of the column.

Sources of Deflection at Shearwall Holdown Connections


A. Bolt slip can occur at holdown stud bolts.
B. Increased bolt slip can occur if oversized holes are drilled through the
stud for holdown stud bolts (oversized holes are when the hole diameter
is greater than the bolt diameter plus " per 2001 NDS 11.1.2).
C. When a holdown is installed on only one side of the stud, an eccentricity
exists during loading which can cause more movement in the shearwall
system.
D. Unrestrained anchor bolt nuts can spin loose during cyclic loading; using
steel nylon locking nuts or thread adhesive may prevent nut spin.
E. Movement can occur when nuts are not tightened enough. Retightening
bolts before covering wall may prevent this.
F. Deflection can occur in the holdown under load caused by stresses due
to earthquake or high wind.
G. Lateral displacement at the top of the wall rotates the stud around its
base causing the holdown base plate to displace vertically.
H. Wood shrinkage can occur due to drying of the sill plate, rim joist, and/or
top plate; nuts may require retightening.
I. Uplift forces on the bolts can cause localized wood crushing at bolt
bearing locations. Using larger bearing plates may prevent this.
J. Wood at the end of the studs (sill plates, rim joists, etc.) may crush
under normal dead and live loading; additional compressive forces due
to overturning during earthquake and high wind loads add to the
deflection.

LSTHD/STHD

STRAP TIE
HOLDOWN

The STHD is an embedded strap tie holdown with high load capacity and a
staggered nail pattern to help minimize splitting.
FEATURES
The strap nailing pattern allows for nailing to the edges of double 2x's.
A slot below the embedment line allows for increased front to back
concrete bond and reduced spalling.
Strap nail slots are countersunk to provide a lower nail head profile.
Rim joist models accommodate up to a 17" clear span without any
loss of strap nailing.
Coined edges enhance safe handling.
MATERIAL: LSTHD8, LSTHD8RJ14 ga, all others12 ga. FINISH: Galvanized
INSTALLATION:
Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
See Post Tension information on page 31.
Install before concrete pour with a StrapMate, or other holding device.
Nail strap from the bottom up. Strap may be bent one full cycle.
Bending the strap 90 to aid wall placement may cause spalling behind
the strap. If the spall is 1" or less, measured from the embedment line
to the bottom of the spall, full loads apply. For spalls between 1" and 4"
(see illustration), the allowable load is 0.90 of the table loads.
For two pour installations spalling is measured from the first pour.
Where fewer fasteners are used in the structural wood member, reduce
loads according to the code.
Unless otherwise noted, do NOT install where: (a) a horizontal cold joint
exists within the embedment depth between the slab and foundation wall
or footing beneath, unless provisions are made to transfer the load, or
the slab is designed to resist the load imposed by the anchor; or
(b) slabs are poured over concrete block foundation walls.
To get the full table load, the minimum center-to-center spacing is twice
the embedment depth when resisting tension loads at the same time.
There is an increase in the amount of deflection if the strap is installed
on the outside of the shear panel instead of directly to the framing.
Ask for Form T-PLYWOOD for complete details.
FOUNDATION CORNERS: Nail quantities may be reduced for less than
le corner distance design loadsuse the code allowable loads for
fasteners in shear.
To tie double 2x members together, the Designer must determine
the fasteners required to bind members to act as one unit without
splitting the wood.
Additional studs attached to the shearwall studs or post may be
required by the Designer for wall sheathing nailing.
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.

guaranteed ultimate strength of 41.3 k.
3. Anchorage is monostrand-type anchor system with current ICBO
approval using a ductile iron casting of at least 2.25" x 4.5" of
bearing and reusable pocket formers on all stressing ends.
4. It is the designers responsibility to provide reinforcement to tie
cold-joints and to resist bending stresses in the foundation due

Wood-to-concrete connectors that satisfy engineering and code requirements.


MATERIAL: HPA10 ga; all others12 ga FINISH: Galvanized, some models available in ZMAX or HDG.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Install before concrete pour with a StrapMate, or other holding device.
Bending the strap 90 to aid wall placement may cause spalling behind the strap. If the spall is
1" or less, measured from the embedment line to the bottom of the spall, full loads apply. For
spalls between 1" and 4" (see illustration), the allowable load is 0.90 of the table loads.
For two pour installations spalling is measured from the first pour.
Nail strap from bottom up. Strap may be bent one full cycle.
Where fewer fasteners are used in the structural wood member, reduce loads according
Embedment
to the code. A wood splitting problem may occur when holdowns are nailed to lumber
Line
less than 3" wide. To lessen splitting of 3x's or double 2x's, either fill every nail hole
(Top of
with 10dx1" nails or fill every other nail hole with 16d commons. Reduce the allowable
Concrete)
load based on the size and quantity of fasteners used.
Unless otherwise noted, do NOT install where: (a) a horizontal cold joint exists within the
embedment depth between the slab and foundation wall or footing beneath, unless provisions
are made to transfer the load, or the slab is designed to resist the load imposed by the anchor;
or (b) slabs are poured over concrete block foundation walls.
To get the full table load, the minimum center-to-center spacing is twice the embedment depth
when resisting tension loads at the same time.
There is an increase in the amount of deflection if the strap is installed on the outside of the
shear panel instead of directly to the framing. Ask for Form T-PLYWOOD for complete details.
To tie double 2x members together, the Designer must determine the fasteners required
to bind members to act as one unit without splitting the wood.
HPAHD22
Additional studs attached to the shearwall studs or post may be required by the Designer
for wall sheathing nailing.
FOUNDATION CORNERS: Nail and bolt quantities have been reduced when the load is limited by tested
concrete pullout strength (fill holes from bottom up); additional nail holes need not be filled. Nail and bolt
quantities may be reduced further for less than 8" corner distance design loadsuse code
allowable loads for fasteners used in shear.
TWO-POUR SYSTEMS: When a cold joint exists between slab and foundation, the holdown will be lower
on the stud wall since the embedded portion of the holdown must be in the foundation (see table footnote
1 for exception). Fewer fasteners are used, reducing allowable loads. Loads are calculated using a 4" slab
over 6" and 8" foundation walls.
PAHD42, HPAHD22, HPAHD22-2P HOLDOWNS: Designed to be installed at the edge of concrete.
Tests determined the pullout strength with one horizontal #4 rebar in the shear cone. Rebar should be
a minimum length of 2x embedment depth + 12" (except corner installations, page 33). Install before pouring concrete by nailing to form. Installation holes allow nailing to the form, resulting in 1" deeper embedment; see illustration.

Additional standoff bases are on page 157.


The AB is a fully-adjustable post base which offers moisture
protection and finished hardware appearance.
Post Bases provide tested capacity. They feature 1" standoff
height above concrete floors, code-required when supporting
permanent structures that are exposed to the weather or water
splash, or in basements. They reduce the potential for decay at
post and column ends.
MATERIAL: AB12 ga plates; 16 ga base cover; all otherssee table.
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in Z-MAX;
see Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Post bases do not provide adequate resistance
to prevent members from rotating about the base
and therefore are not recommended for non

MATERIAL: 12 gauge base, threaded rod support " x 5" (shipped assembled)
FINISH: BaseGalvanized, Threaded RodZinc Plate
INSTALLATION: Secured with epoxy: Drill a " hole 2" deep minimum. Half
fill the hole with epoxy. Insert the EPB44T and adjust to the desired height.
To adjust after the epoxy cures, drill a hole in the center of the post and
turn the post base up or down to the desired height.
Supported by a nut: Drill a " hole 2" deep min. into concrete. Install a
-11 NC nut and cut washer on the threaded rod. (Nut and washer not
supplied). Insert EPB44T into the hole and adjust to the desired height.
Embedded in wet concrete: Embed " rod minimum 4" embedment.
Minimum sidecover is 3" from the center of the threaded rod.
Fully engage at least three threads in the base.
Post bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members
from rotating about the base and therefore are not recommended for
non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports).

1. Downloads are determined using Fc equal to: 560 psi for glulam sizes and
625 psi for all others; reduce where end bearing value of post, L/R of post, or
other criteria are limiting.
2.Spliced conditions must be detailed by the specifier to transfer tension loads
between spliced members by means other than the column cap.
3.Uplift loads do not apply to splice conditions.
4. Post sides are assumed to lie in the same vertical plane as the beam sides.
5. Loads may not be increased for short-term loading.
6. Uplift loads have been increased 33% and 60% for earthquake or wind loading;
reduce for other loading conditions in accordance with the code.

Caps & Bases

BC POST
CAPS
The BCS allows for the connection of 2-2x's to a 4x post or
3-2x's to a 6x post. Double shear nailing between beam and post
gives added strength! The BC series offers dual purpose post
cap/base for light cap or base connections.
MATERIAL: 18 gauge
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in Z-MAX;
see Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION:
Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
If " pilot holes are bolted, no additional load is achieved.
BCS: install dome nails on beam; drive nails at an angle through
the beam into the post below to achieve the table loads
BC: install with 16d commons or 16dx2" joist hanger nails.
Post bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members
from rotating about the base and therefore are not recommended for
non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports).

1. Loads may not be increased for short-term loading.
2. Allowable loads are determined using the lowest of the bearing
loads using Fc equal to 425 psi for SPF, 625 psi for DF and 700
for LVL/PSL, or the 8 lally column capacity.
3. Loads are for a continuous beam.
4. Spliced conditions must be detailed by the specifier to transfer
tension loads between spliced members by means other than the
lally column. The splice condition load is 6750 lbs per beam side
and the lally cap must be evenly loaded.
5. To achieve lateral loads, LCC pipe must be welded to the column
with an " fillet weld around the entire pipe.

CAPS
MATERIAL: CC3, CC44, CC46, CC48, CC64, CC66, CC68, CC6-77 gauge;
all others3 gauge
FINISH: Simpson gray paint; may be ordered HDG; CCOno finish.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Bolt holes shall be a minimum of " to a maximum of " larger
than the bolt diameter (per 2001 NDS, section 11.1.2).
Contact engineered wood manufacturers for connections
that are not through the wide face.
OPTIONS: Straps may be rotated 90 where W1>W2 (see illustration).
For special, custom, or rough cut lumber sizes, provide dimensions. An
optional W2 dimension may be specified with any column size given (note
that the W2 dimension on straps rotated 90 is limited by the W1 dimension).
Column caps with W1, L, H1, and hole schedules different from the table
may be special ordered. Provide a drawing to ensure accuracy.
CCOColumn cap only (no straps) may be ordered for field-welding to pipe
or other columns. No loads apply. CCO dimensions are the same as CC.
CCOBAny two CCOs may be specified for back-to-back welding
to create a cross beam connector. Use the table loads; the load is
no greater than the lesser element employed.
CCC/CCTCross Column Cap/T Column Cap. 7 gauge stirrups
may be welded to column cap sides. Uplift loads do not apply to
side stirrups.
The following criteria apply:
1.The side stirrup maximum allowable download cannot exceed
40% of the download in the table for the unmodified product,
and cannot exceed 10,665 lbs. The sum of the loads cannot
exceed the table load. The column width in the direction of the
beam width must be the same as the beam width: W1.
2.Specify the stirrup height from the top of the cap. The
minimum H2/H3 for the stirrup is 6" (3" for 44s).
3.The L dimension may vary depending on W3 or W4.
Ordering examples: A CCC66 with W3 = 5", H2 and
H3 = 6" is a CC66 column cap with 5" beams on each
side with all beam seats flush.
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.

There are cost-effective alternatives


for replacing column caps by using
a combination of connectors. Here
are some examples. Designer must
specify the options required.
NOTE: The side cap will be welded flush
with the top of the main cap.

Shearwall

NEW! We have responded to the needs of builders, specifiers and contractors


who asked for improvements in our Strong-Wall shearwall. The result is the
newest addition to the Strong-Wall line, our new Steel Strong-Wall! This
composite shearwall boasts some of the the highest allowable loads in the
industry. Wood framing is preattached for interior and exterior finishes.
The Steel Strong-Wall is the strongest, most cost-effective shearwall on
the market today.
Stronger Wall: Allowable loads
are two to three times higher
than the original Strong-Wall.
Unique Design: Resists distortion
of the center section and results in
sustained vertical load capacity.
Simplified Installation: Fewer
anchor bolts and SDS screws. Easy
access at top and bottom for quick
installation.
Contractor friendly: Easy to
use reversible template for concrete
contractors and predrilled holes
where electricians need them for
wiring.
Support and Service: Simpson
provides the best engineering
technical support and experienced
field representation available.

Attach to header
or top plates with
SDSx3 screws
(provided).

1. Loads shown are at ASD level in pounds per square foot of wall.
2. Axial load denotes total gravity load permitted on entire panel
acting in combination with the out-of-plane load.
3. Load is limited to the lesser of combined flexural and axial loading
or H/240 wall deflection limit.
4. Values do not include the 1/3 steel stress increase and therefore
are applicable to either the ASD Basic or Alternate Basic load
combinations of the 97 UBC, 2000 IBC or 2003 IBC.
5. Allowable out-of plane loads for the 12 and 15 inch walls may be
linearly interpolated between the 1000 and 7500 lb axial load.

1. Compression capacity is lesser of wall buckling capacity or 2500 psi concrete bearing limit.
2. Compression buckling capacity of wall assumes no lateral loads present. See allowable
in-plane shear load tables for combined lateral and 4000 lb axial loading condition.
3. Allowable tension loads as limited by the tension capacity of one high strength anchor rod.
4. Values do not include the 1/3 steel stress increase and therefore are applicable to either
the ASD Basic or Alternate Basic load combinations of the 97 UBC, 2000 IBC or 2003 IBC.

STRONG-WALL SHEARWALL
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.
The Strong-Wall Shearwall can be installed around window and door openings, on garage
wing walls, interior walls or any other locations where increased lateral resistance is required.
Strong-Wall Shearwalls can reduce the amount of wall space required for shearwalls,
allowing for more windows and doors in house designs.
Standard models are used for slab-on-grade applications where the wall will bear directly
on concrete. Simply fasten the bottom of the wall to the embedded bolts with the provided
hardware. The top of the wall attaches with pre-installed SDS screws to double top plates
or can fasten to various header materials.

STRONG-WALL SHEARWALL FOR


2nd FLOOR APPLICATIONS!

Raised Floor walls are designed


and tested for installation on top
of raised wood floor systems.
All 2nd Floor Applications must
use the Raised Floor Models.
Raised Floor walls are compatible
with both solid sawn lumber and
I-joist floor systems. Simpson
SDS screws pre-installed in both
the top and bottom of the wall
allow for fast installation to
the top plate and floor framing
elements.

Raised Floor (-RF) walls are code listed for use on the second floor
of two-story wood light-frame construction. Simpson Strong-Tie
recommends the Simpson Takeup Device, (SW-TUD1KT), be used
at the 2nd floor to compensate for wood shrinkage and settlement
due to dead load.

When framing conditions necessitate this


application, only the HUSC46 may be used with the
Strong-Wall Shearwall for light duty door and
window headers. With face nailing closer to the
center of the carrying member and the double shear
nailing feature, an HUSC46 hanger will achieve the
loads listed in the Face Mount Hanger tables.
Application is limited to the HUSC46.
See page 56 for details.

1. For plywood shear panel, add P to model name (e.g. SW24x8P), and multiply the
table loads by 0.88.
2. For two-pour applications, use SSTB34. See SSTB anchor bolts for allowable loads and
installation. Alternate " diameter anchorage may be required depending on load.
3. All thread rod not supplied with Raised Floor walls. Minimum ASTM A307 required.
Engineer of record must specify if high strength all-thread rod is required,
depending on load.

34

4.All Raised Floor walls require 1" or 3" end distance from corner
for end post bearing plate. See details available on website.
5. Maximum shim height between Strong-Wall and top plates or
header is ". Shims of greater thickness will result in load
reductions.
6. See allowable vertical load table on page 53 for Strong-Wall
maximum compression and tension capacities.

After further evaluation by SST engineers it has been determined that the Raised Floor - 2nd Floor with Simpson
Takeup Device (TUD) table should be removed. No increase in Allowable Shear or reduction in Drift should be taken.
Wall deflection from moderate seismic or high wind events combined with wood shrinkage could exceed the " of
travel the TUD will travel in this application. It is possible that there would be no reserve travel left .
The TUD is designed to compensate for wood shrinkage and settlement due to dead loads only.

The building designer shall verify that these details are consistent with the complete load path requirements of the structure.

These allowable vertical loads are intended to aid the user


in correctly implementing the Strong-Wall Shearwall into
the load path of the structure. Load combinations that tend
to cause compression can be limited by perpendicular to
grain interface issues, by buckling of the vertical members

STRONG-WALL SHEARWALL
Naming Scheme:

GARAGE PORTAL SYSTEMS


Garage Portal systems provide increased lateral resistance over site-built shearwalls in locations
where space is at a premium. Portal walls shall be installed with a minimum 12" nominal deep
header for adequate shear nailing. Because the portal walls and header are tested as a system,
the resulting portal frame offers superior engineered performance over site-built walls.
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.

condition may then be evaluated as the sum
of the individual wall (pier) ratings. Individual
wall (pier) ratings for this condition may be
taken as half of their Double Wall Portal values.
5. Longer header spans can be accommodated if
larger headers are used such that equivalent
stiffness is equal to or greater than that
provided by the minimum header and

These hangers have the highest loads of any face mount hangers!
All hangers in this series have double shear nailing. This patented
innovation distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for
greater strength. It also allows the use of fewer nails, faster installation, and
the use of standard nails for all connections. (Do not bend or remove tabs)

BEAM AND
TOP FLANGE HANGERS JB/LB/BA/B/HHB JOIST,
PURLIN HANGERS

The NEW BA hanger is a cost effective hanger featuring min/max joist


nailing option. Min Nailing featuring Positive Angle Nailing targets moderate
load conditions where as the Max Nailing generates capacities for higher loads.
The unique two level embossment provides added stiffness to the top flange.
The newly improved B hanger offers wide versatility with enhanced
load capacities.
See tables on pages 67 to 69. See Hanger Options on pages 164
for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.
MATERIAL: See tables, pages 67 to 69.
FINISH: JB, LB and BGalvanized; HHBall saddle hangers and all welded
sloped and special hangersSimpson gray paint.
INSTALLATION: Use specified fasteners. See General Notes and nailer table.
B
LB, BA, B and HHB may be welded to steel headers with weld size to match
material thickness (approximate thickness shown). The minimum required weld
to the top flanges is " x 2" (" x 1" for LB) fillet weld to each side of each top
flange tab for 14 and 12 gauge and " x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top
flange tab for 7 gauge. Distribute the weld equally on both top flanges. Welding
cancels the top and face nailing requirements. Consult the code for special
considerations when welding galvanized steel. The area should be well-ventilated
(see page 11 for welding information). Weld on applications produce the
maximum allowable load listed. Uplift loads do not apply to welded applications.
Ledgers must be evaluated for each application separately.
Check TF dimension, nail length and nail location on ledger.
OPTIONS: B and HHB
Other widths are available; specify W dimension
(the minimum W dimension is 1").
B dimensions may be increased on some models.
See Hanger Options, page 164.

TOP FLANGE HANGERS W/WPU/WNP/WM/WMU/HW/HWU


2"

The W, WPU, HWU and HW series purlin hangers offer the greatest
design flexibility and versatility. WMs are designed for use on standard
8 grouted masonry block wall construction.
MATERIAL: See tables on pages 60 to 62; W12 ga. top flange and
stirrup; WM, WMU12 ga. top flange and stirrup; WNP, WP,
WPU7 ga. top flange, 12 ga. stirrup; HW3 ga. top flange,
11 ga. stirrup; HWU3 ga. top flange, 10 ga, stirrup.
FINISH: Simpson gray paint; hot-dipped galvanized available:
specify HDG, check factory.
ALLOWABLE LOADS: For hanger heights exceeding the joist height, the
allowable load is 0.50 of the table load.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. WMtwo 16d duplex nails must
W
be installed into the top flange and embedded into the grouted wall. Verify
that the grouted wall can take the required fasteners specified in the table.
Hangers may be welded to steel headers with weld size to match material
thickness (approximate thickness shown) for W, for WNP/WPU
and for HW/HWU, by 1 fillet welds located at each end of the top flange
(see page 11 for welding information). Weld-on applications produce
maximum allowable load listed. Uplift loads do not apply to this application.
Hangers can support multi-ply carried members; the individual members must
be secured together to work as a single unit before installation into the hanger.
H dimensions are sized to account for normal joist shrinkage.
W dimensions are for dressed timber widths.
Embed WM into block with a minimum of one course above and one course
below the top flange with one #5 vertical rebar minimum
24 long in each cell. Minimum grout strength is 2000 psi.
See Hanger Options, page 164 for hanger modifications
and associated load reductions.

TRUSS HANGERS
THA/THAC ADJUSTABLE

Solid Sawn Connectors

This product is preferable to similar connectors because of a) easier installation,


b) higher loads, c) lower installed cost, or a combination of these features.

The THA series extra long straps allow full code nailing and
can be field-formed to give top flange hanger convenience.
Designed for 4x2 floor trusses and 4x beams, the THAR/L422
has a standard skew of 45 degrees. Straps can be formed to give
top flange hanger convenience. PAN nailing helps eliminate splitting
of 4x2 truss bottom chords.
MATERIAL: See table.
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in Z-MAX;
see Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Two different installation methods may be used:
Maximum nailingInstall all face nails according to the table.
Nails used for the joist attachment must be driven at an angle so
that they penetrate through the corner of the joist into the header.
With single 2x carrying members, use 10dx1" nails into the
carrying member, and 10d or 16d commons into the carried
member, and use 0.81 of the table value for 18 gauge, and 0.68
of the table value for 16 gauge.
Minimum nailingFor the THA29, the minimum nailing schedule
requires the use of joist double shear nailing as detailed above,
and that the strap be field-formed over the header a minimum of
2". A minimum of four top and four face nails must be used.
For all models except the THA29, the minimum nailing schedule
may be followed where double shear nailing is not possible,
provided the strap is field-formed over the top of the header a
minimum of 1" for the THA213 and THA413, and 2" for all
others, and a minimum of four top and two face nails are used.

GENERAL CONNECTOR INSTALLATION


TOP FLANGE HANGERS

IUS INSTALLATION SEQUENCE

Flush Framing
Top flange configuration
and thickness of top flange
need to be considered for
flush frame conditions.

Hanger Over-Spread
If the hanger is over-spread, it
can raise the I-joist above the
header and may cause uneven
surfaces and squeaky floors.
STEP 2
Slide the
I-joist into
the IUS until
it rests above
the large
teardrop.

Hanger Not Plumb


A hanger kicked-out
from the header can
cause uneven surfaces
and squeaky floors.

STEP 3
Firmly push or
snap I-joist fully
into the seat of
the IUS.

WOOD NAILERS

Catalog C-2005 Copyright 2004 SIMPSON STRONG-TIE CO., INC.

Correct Attachment

WOOD I-JOISTS
SLOPED JOISTS
For sloped joists up to :12
there is no reduction. For slopes
greater than :12 see individual
product pages or refer to technical
bulletin T-WSLOPED04.
MULTIPLE JOISTS
Multiple joists should be
adequately connected together
to act as one unit.
FASTENERS
Use the correct nails. Wood may
split if the nails are too large. Hanger
nails into flanges should not exceed
10d common (0.148 dia.), no longer
than 1. Nails into web stiffeners
should not exceed 16d commons
(0.162 dia.).
ECCENTRICALLY-LOADED I-JOISTS
Supporting a top flange hanger
may require bottom flange restraining
straps, blocking or directly-applied
ceiling systems to prevent rotation
at the hanger location.

Nailer Too Wide


The loading may cause crossgrain bending. As a general
rule, the maximum allowable
overhang is , depending
on nailer thickness.

NAIL PATTERN

Face Mount Hanger

Nailer Too Narrow


A maximum mismatch of
for normal installations is allowed.

Attach backer block


with 10-10d nails. Solid
sawn backer blocks may
split if a row of closelyspaced nails goes along
the wood grain.
For I-joist to I-joist
connections, the nails
should extend through
backer block and web.
Refer to manufacturers
literature for other
attachment details.

I-JOIST HEADERS

Nailer Too Thin


or the wrong hanger
for the application.

DOUBLE SHEAR
NAILING
The nail is installed
into joist and header,
distributing load
through two points
on each nail for
greater strength.

TOE-NAILING
When supporting
one I-joist from another,
install backer blocks to
the carrying I-joist with
10-10d nails. Check with
the joist manufacturer to
see if backer blocks are
required on both sides.

Toe nailing causes


squeaks and
improper hanger
installations.
Do not toe nail
I-joists before

Hangers provide some joist rotation resistance; however,


additional lateral restraint may be required for deep joists.

PREVENT ROTATION
No Web Stiffener
Installed
Hanger side
flange supports

Rotation Resistance
If non-skewed hanger side
flange is less than 60% of
joist depth, attach staggered
A34 framing anchors above
the hanger.

Web Stiffener
Required
Hanger side flange
should be at least
60% of joist depth
or potential joist
rotation must be
addressed.

No Web Stiffener
Results in Rotation
Hanger side flange is below
the joist top flange. No web
stiffener results in rotation,
unless restrained by other
means.

This document uses Douglas Fir-Larch values (G = 0.5),
as per the LVL manufacturers instructions.
Loads shown are at 100%. Increase as allowed by code.
The designer shall specify the location of all screws
(stagger screws on opposite faces).
Uniform loads in the table below are based on the capacity of the
fasteners to transfer loads between plies. The capacity of the LVL
beam may be less and should be checked by a qualified designer
or with the manufacturers literature.

HANGERS
IUS/IUT/MIU I-JOIST
The IUS is preferable to similar connectors because of a) easier installation, b)
higher loads, c) lower installed cost, or a combination of these features.

Locator Tab
SNAP-IN TEARDROP

The improved IUS is now fully compatible with shallow flange I-joists!
I-joists with flange thicknesses between 1" and 1" achieve the full
allowable table loads including uplift values and joist nails are not required! The
IUS is a hybrid hanger that incorporates the advantages of the face mount and top
mount hanger. Installation is fast with the Strong-Grip and Snap-In joist features
along with easy-to-reach face nail locations and self-jigging locator tabs.

No nails required!

Catalog C-2005 Copyright 2004 SIMPSON STRONG-TIE CO., INC.

INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners.


Verify that the header can take the required
fasteners specified in the table. See pages
75-76 for more installation information.
IUSfasten hanger to header. Position
I-joist into hanger and snap into place.
No joist nailing required. Some IUS models
have triangle and round header nail holes.
To achieve Max. download, fill both round
and triangle holes.
IUSLocator tabs are not structural.
They may be bent back to adjust for
hanger placement.
IUToptional seat diamond hole allows
alternate attachment of hanger.
See T-OPTUPLIFTCWP.
Web stiffeners are not required with I-joists
when the joist top flange is laterally supported by the sides of the hanger. I-joist
manufacturers may require web stiffeners.
OPTIONS:
These hangers cannot be modified. However,
these models will normally accommodate a
skew of up to 5. For sloped joists up to :12
there is no reduction, between :12 and up
to :12, tests show a 10% reduction in
ultimate hanger strength. Local crushing of the
bottom flange or excessive deflection may be
limiting; check with joist manufacturer for
specific limitations on bearing of this type.

IUS INSTALLATION SEQUENCE

STEP 1
Attach the IUS to
the header

STEP 2
Slide the I-joist downward
into the IUS until it rests
above the large teardrop.

Engineered Wood & Structural Composite Lumber Connectors

The MIU series hangers are designed for commercial and high load I-joist
applications without requiring web stiffeners. The MIU features Positive Angle
Nailing (PAN), which minimizes splitting of the flanges while permitting time-saving
nailing from a better angle.
The IUT features a bend-tab which nails into the I-joists bottom flange when
web stiffeners are not used, or directly into the web stiffener. Maximum flange
thickness for bend-tab application is 1". This constrains the member, helping to
reduce squeaks resulting from joist movement.
MATERIAL: See table page 79-81. FINISH: Galvanized
UPLIFT LOADS: Models have optional triangle joist nail holes for additional
IUS
uplift. Properly attached web stiffeners are required.

on page 158 for hanger modifications, which may result in
reduced loads.
UThe standard U hanger provides flexibility of joist
to header installation. Versatile fastener selection with tested
allowable loads.
HUMost models have triangle and round holes. To achieve
maximum loads, fill both round and triangle holes with common
nails. These heavy-duty connectors are designed for schools
and other structures requiring additional strength, longevity and
safety factors.
MATERIAL: See tables on pages 72 to 76.
FINISH: Galvanized
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
HUcan be installed filling round holes only, or
filling round and triangle holes for maximum values.
Web Stiffeners are required for all I-joists used with
these hangers.

FACE MOUNT HANGERS HUCQ/HUS/HHUS/HGUS


See Hanger tables on pages 72 to 76. See Hanger Options on page
158 for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.
These hangers have the highest loads of any face mount hangers!
All hangers in this series have double shear nailing, except the HUCQ.
This patented innovation distributes the load through two points on each joist
nail for greater strength. It also allows the use of fewer nails, faster installation,
and the use of common nails for all connections. (Do not bend or remove tabs)
MATERIAL: See tables, pages 72 to 76.
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in stainless steel or Z-MAX;
see Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Do not use double shear hangers with I-joists.
Nails must be driven at an angle through the joist or truss into the
header to achieve the table loads.
Not designed for welded or nailer applications.
16d sinkers (9 gauge x 3") may be used where 10d commons
are specified with no reduction in load. Where 16d commons are
specified, 10d commons or 16d sinkers (9 gauge x 3") may be
used at 0.84 of the table load.
With 3x carrying members, use 16d x 2" nails into the header and
16d commons into the joist with no load reduction. With 2x carrying
members, use 10d x 1" nails into the header and 10d commons
into the joist, and reduce the load to 0.64 of the table value.
Install HUCQs with SDS wood screws which are supplied with
the hanger.
OPTIONS: HUS hangers available with the header flanges turned in for
3" wide joist only, with no load reduction. See HUSC Concealed
Flange illustration.
Concealed flanges are not available for HGUS, HUS1.81/10 and HHUS.
See Hanger Options, page 158, for sloped and/or skewed HHUS models.

TOP FLANGE HANGERS ITT/MIT/HIT/ITTM


ENGINEERED WOOD PRODUCTS HANGERS
This product is preferable to similar connectors because of a) easier installation,
b) higher loads, c) lower installed cost, or a combination of these features.

ITT - Bend Tab Nailing


Nail the ITT's special bend-tab with 10dx1" nails at a slight angle
into the bottom flange of the I-joist when web stiffeners are not used.
The bend tab can also be nailed directly into the web stiffener. This
constrains the I-joist, helping to reduce squeaks resulting from joist
movement. Reduced embossing on the ITT's top flange, and the hanger
height sized less than the joist height allow easier fitting for smooth
floor alignment. Maximum flange thickness for bend-tab application is 1".
MIT/HIT - Patented Positive Angle Nailing
This feature is specifically designed for wood web I-joists when
used with the MIT or HIT. With Positive Angle Nailing (PAN), the slotted
hole material is not removed, but is used to channel and confine the
path of the nail to the optimum angle. PAN minimizes splitting of the
flanges while permitting time-saving nailing from a better angle.

"

ITT

2"

ITTM masonry-to-wood connectors can be directly embedded into a


grouted block wall. It can also be installed on top of a masonry or
concrete wall using Titen screws.
See Top Flange tables on pages 90 to 99.
MATERIAL: ITT18 gauge; MIT, HIT16 gauge,
ITTM12 gauge top flange and 18 gauge stirrup
FINISH: Galvanized
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. Verify that the header
can take the required fasteners specified in the table.
ITT's face flange triangle hole may be used with triangle holes
in the joist for additional uplift (optional); optional diamond
hole in seat allows attachment of hanger to I-joist.
See T-OPTUPLIFTCWP.
ITT's bend-tab may be nailed unbent into plywood web stiffeners.
ALLOWABLE LOADS: The ITT, MIT and HIT hangers have locations
for optional nails if additional uplift is needed. Optional uplift nailing
requires the addition of properly-secured web stiffeners. See the
load tables for minimum required fasteners and allowable
uplift loads.
OPTIONS: Because these hangers are fully die-formed, they cannot be
modified. However these models will normally accommodate a skew
of up to 5.
For sloped joists up to :12 there is no reduction, between :12 and
up to :12, tests show a 10% reduction in ultimate hanger strength.
Local crushing of the bottom flange or excessive deflection may be
limiting; check with joist manufacturer for specific limitations on
bearing of this type.
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.

TOP FLANGE HANGERS BA/LBV/B/BI/HB/HBI


The NEW BA hanger is a cost effective hanger targeted at high capacity I-joists and common
Structural Composite Lumber applications. A min/max joist nail option gives dual use of this
hanger. Minimum values featuring Positive Angle Nailing are targeted at I-joist without web
stiffeners requirement and the maximum nailing generates higher loads to support structural
composite lumber. The unique two level embossment provides added stiffness to the top flange.
The newly improved LBV, B and HB hangers offer wide versatility for I-joists and
structural composite lumber. The enhanced load capacity widens the range of applications
for these hangers. The LBV still features Positive Angle Nailing and does not require the
use of web stiffeners for standard non modified I-joist installations.
See Top Flange tables on pages 90 to 99. See Hanger Options on page 164
for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.
MATERIAL: See tables, pages 90 to 99.
FINISH: LBV, B and HBGalvanized; all saddle hangers and all welded sloped and special
hangersSimpson gray paint. B and HB may be ordered hot-dip galvanized; specify HDG.
INSTALLATION: Use specified fasteners. See General Notes and nailer table.
LBV, B and HB may be used for weld-on applications. Weld size to match material
thickness (approximate thickness shown). The minimum required weld to the top
flanges is " x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 14 and 12 gauge
and " x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 7 gauge. Distribute
the weld equally on both top flanges. Welding cancels the top and face nailing
requirements. Consult the code for special considerations when welding galvanized
steel. The area should be well-ventilated, see page 11 for weld information. Weld
LBV
on applications produce the maximum allowable load listed. Uplift loads do not apply
to welded applications.
LBV hangers do not require the use of web stiffeners for non-sloped
or non-skewed applications.
BA will be available
B and HB hangers require the use of web stiffeners.
Spring 2005
Ledgers must be evaluated for each application separately. Check
TF dimension, nail length and nail location on ledger.
OPTIONS: LBV, B and HB
Other widths are available; specify W dimension (the minimum
W dimension is 1" for LBV, 1" for all others).
The finish on special B hangers will depend on the manufacturing
process used. Check with your Simpson representative for details.

TOP FLANGE HANGERS W/WP/WPU/WM/WMU/HW/HWU


The W, WP, WPU, HWU and HW series purlin hangers offer the greatest design flexibility and
versatility. WMs are designed for use on standard 8 grouted masonry block wall construction.
MATERIAL: See tables on pages 90 to 99; W, WI12 ga. top flange and stirrup;
WM, WMI, WMU12 ga. top flange and stirrup; WPU, WP7 ga. top flange, 12 ga. stirrup;
HW, HWI3 ga. top flange, 11 ga. stirrup; HWU3 ga. top flange, 10 ga, stirrup.
FINISH: Simpson gray paint; hot-dipped galvanized available: specify HDG.
ALLOWABLE LOADS: For hanger heights exceeding the joist height, the
allowable load is 0.50 of the table load.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. WMtwo 16d duplex nails must
be installed into the top flange and embedded into the grouted wall. Verify
that the header can take the required fasteners specified in the table.
Hangers may be welded to steel headers with for W, WI, for WP, WPU
WPI, and for HW, HWI, HWU by 1 fillet welds located at each end of the
top flange, see page 11 for weld information. Weld-on applications produce
maximum allowable load listed. Uplift loads do not apply to this application.
Hangers can support multi-ply carried members; the individual members must
be secured together to work as a single unit before installation into the hanger.
Hangers can support joists sloped up to :12 using table loads.
For joists sloping between :12 and :12 use 85% of the table loads.
Embed WM into block with a minimum of one course above and one course
below the top flange with one #5 vertical rebar minimum 24 long in each cell.
W/WI
Minimum grout strength is 2000 psi.
Web stiffeners are required for standard joist nailing configuration with these hangers.
OPTIONS: Specify alternate nailing pattern when web stiffeners are not being used (up to 16
in depth). Add X ANP after model number for nailing into the flange, available for
90 applications only. Uplift loads do not apply to this application.
See Hanger Options, page 164 for hanger modifications and associated load reductions.

DUTY
GLTV/HGLTV HEAVY
HANGERS

GLTV and HGLTV hangers are designed for use with structural
composite lumber headers, and may take heavy loads. The top flange
nails are sized and specifically located to prevent degradation of the
header due to splitting of laminations.
For heavy loads with a face-mount application, see the HGUS series.
MATERIAL: Top flange3 gauge; Stirrups7 gauge
FINISH: Simpson gray paint
ALLOWABLE LOADS: For hanger heights exceeding the joist height,
the allowable load is 0.50 of the table load.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. Verify that the header
can take the required fasteners specified in the table.
This series may be used for weld-on applications. Minimum
required weld is a x 2 fillet weld at each end of the top
flange for GLTV, and a x 2 fillet weld at each end of the
top flange for HGLTV, see page 11 for weld information.
Weld-on applications produce maximum loads listed. Uplift
loads do not apply to this application.
Web stiffeners are required with I-joists using this hanger style.
GLTV may be installed on a nailer and ledger; HGLTV may
be installed on a ledger only. Nailers and ledgers must be a
minimum of 4x lumber to guarantee the load values given in the
tables. Thinner lumber or laminated veneer lumber used as a
nailer must be evaluated by the building designer.
OPTIONS: Hot-dipped galvanized: specify HDG.
See Hanger Options, page 164.
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.

1. Loads may not be increased for short-term loading. Uplift loads are based on tests on solid wood headers.
2. Uplift loads are based on Douglas Fir, and have been increased 33% and 60% for wind or earthquake loading
with no further increase allowed. Divide by 1.33 and 1.60 for normal loading such as in cantilever construction.
3. ITTM and WM loads listed are based on attachment to a masonry block wall.
4. When I-joist is used as header, all nails must be 10dx1.
5. SCL, structural composite lumber, is laminated veneer lumber, Parallam PSL and TimberStrand LSL.
6. I-joist headers with SPF flanges only support 755 lbs (ITT), 885 lbs (MIT), 2030 lbs (WP/WPI),
1340 lbs (LBV) and 1495 lbs (BA).
7. Loads for I-Joist header with LVL flanges less than 1" thick shall be limited to 85% of the load shown
in this table for DF I-joist.
8. Avg Ult not shown due to space limitations.

SKEWED 45 HANGERS
I-JOIST AND SCL
SUR/SUL/HSUR/HSUL FOR

The SUR/L1.81, 2.56 and New HSUR/L4.12, 4.75


and 5.12 are improved 45 skewed hangers designed
specifically to ease the installation of single and double
I-Joists. In addition to Positive Angle Nailing these
hanger's encapsulate the top flange of the I-Joist, so
no web stiffeners are required for standard installation.
The full range of 45 skewed hangers feature obround
nail holes on the acute side allowing nails to be easily
installed parallel to the header and joist. Installation is
further simplified with no required bevel cuts.
MATERIAL: See table. FINISH: Galvanized.
Some products available in Z-MAX;
see Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Illustrations show left and right skews SUR/L
(SUR=skewed right; SUL=skewed left).
The joist end may be square cut or bevel cut.
Web stiffeners are required for I-Joist applications
except for the SUR/L1.81, 2.56, HSUR/L4.12, 4.75 and 5.12.
Fill all round and obround nail holes with specified
fasteners to achieve table loads. Where noted,
triangle holes in the joist flange may be filled for
additional uplift capacity (see Footnote 3).
OPTIONS: These hangers will accommodate a 40 to 50 skew.
Available with the A2 flange turned in on 2-2x and
4x models only (see illustration). For example, specify
HSURC410, HSULC410, SURC210-2, or SULC210-2.
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.

Engineered Wood & Structural Composite Lumber Connectors

Wood-to-concrete and -concrete block connectors that satisfy


code requirements. The PA's dual embedment line allows installation
in concrete or concrete block.
MATERIAL: MPAI14 ga; PAI12 ga.
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available HDG or Z-MAX.
INSTALLATION: Minimum concrete strength is 2000 psi.
Use all specified fasteners; some models have extra fastener holes.
See General Notes.
Wood splitting may occur when anchor is nailed to wood less than
3" wide. To reduce splitting for widths less than 3", fill every other
nail hole with 10dx1" nails. Reduce the allowable load based on
the size and quantity of fasteners used. (See nail table on page 14.)
PAI is designed for wood I-joists. Nail spacing is for 10dx1" nails
3" on center, to minimize the chance of wood splitting. Maximum
ledger width for full loads is 1".
EDGE DISTANCEMinimum concrete edge distance is 5". Minimum
concrete block left-to-right edge distance is 20".
CONCRETE BLOCK WALLSThe masonry embedment line on PAI, MPAI
allows for 4" of grout embedment in a standard 8" concrete masonry
unit. The minimum wall specifications are: one # 4 vertical rebar,
32" long, at 32" o.c.; two courses of block above and below the
anchor; a horizontal bond beam with two # 4 rebars, 40" long, a
maximum of two courses above or below the anchor; all cells grouted
with 2000 psi " aggregate grout. Grout shall be vibrated per the
1997 UBC section 2104.6.2.
OPTIONS: See LTT and HTT Tension Ties.

which may result in reduced loads.
HUMost models have triangle and round holes. To achieve
maximum loads, fill both round and triangle holes with common nails.
HGUS hangers have the highest loads of any face mount hangers!
All hangers in this series have double shear nailing. This patented
innovation distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for
greater strength. It also allows the use of fewer nails, faster installation,
and the use of common nails for all connections. (Do not bend or
remove tabs)
HU210-2
MATERIAL: See tables.
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in Z-MAX;
see Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
HUcan be installed filling round holes only, or filling round
and triangle holes for maximum values.
HGUSNails must be driven at an angle through the joist
or truss into the header to achieve the table loads.
Not designed for nailer applications.
With 3x carrying members, use 16d x 2" nails into the
header and 16d commons into the joist with no load reduction.
With 2x carrying members, use 10d x 1" nails into the header
and 10d commons into the joist, and reduce the load to 0.64
of the table value.
OPTIONS: HU hangers available with the header flanges turned

modifications, which may result in reduced loads.
GLT and HGLT accommodate typical structural requirements for timber
and glulam beams. GLT top flange depth allows installation on minimum
4x ledger (3" net). Not acceptable for nailer applications. Funnel flanges
allow easy installation of beams.
GLS and HGLS are heavy glulam saddle hangers. Tested and code-listed
seismic tie provisions are added to the GLS or HGLSorder GLST or HGLST.
The seismic tie models use three extra " bolts through each carried member
and two " bolts through the supporting member. Bolt holes shall be a minimum
of " to a maximum of " larger than the bolt diameter (1997 NDS, sec. 8.1.2.1.).

TOP FLANGE HANGERS HHB/GB/HGB

BEAM AND
PURLIN HANGERS

See table on page 106. See Hanger Options on page 164 for hanger modifications, which may
result in reduced loads.
Precision forming with manufacturing quality control provides dimensional accuracy and helps ensure
proper bearing area and connection.
MATERIAL: See table on page 106.
FINISH: HHB, GB, HGB, all saddle hangers and all welded sloped and special hangersSimpson gray paint.
HHB may be ordered hot-dip galvanized; specify HDG.
INSTALLATION: Use specified fasteners. See General Notes.
HHB, GB and HGB may be used for weld-on applications. The minimum required weld to the top flanges
is " x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 14 and 12 gauge and " x 2" fillet weld to each
side of each top flange tab for 7 gauge. Distribute the weld equally on both top flanges. Welding cancels
the top and face nailing requirements. Consult the code for special considerations when welding galvanized
steel. The area should be well-ventilated. See page 11 for weld information. Weld on applications
produce the maximum allowable load listed. Uplift loads do not apply to welded applications.
Ledgers must be evaluated for each application separately. Check TF dimension,
nail length and nail location on ledger.
OPTIONS: HHBother widths are available; specify W dimension (the minimum W dimension is 2").
Saddle hangers are made to order; add D to model (e.g. HHBD3);
specify S (for saddle) dimension. They may be used for most conditions
except at end wall locations, and are preferred for nailer applications.
The finish on special B hangers will depend on the manufacturing process used. Check with
your Simpson representative for details. Hot-dipped galvanized available: specify HDG.
B dimensions may be increased on some models.
See Hanger Options, page 164.

Glulam Beam Connectors

The WPU, HWU and HW series purlin hangers offer the greatest design flexibility and versatility.
MATERIAL: WNP/WPI/WPU7 ga. top flange, 12 ga. stirrup; HW3 ga. top flange,
11 ga. stirrup; HWU3 ga. top flange, 10 ga, stirrup.
FINISH: Simpson gray paint; hot-dipped galvanized available: specify HDG.
ALLOWABLE LOADS: For hanger heights exceeding the joist height, the
allowable load is 0.50 of the table load.
INSTALLATION: Hangers may be welded to steel headers with for WPU/WNP/WP/WPI,
and for HW/HWU, by 1 fillet welds located at each end of the top flange.
Weld-on applications produce maximum allowable load listed. See page 11
for weld information. Uplift loads do not apply to this application.
Hangers can support multi-ply carried members; the individual members
must be secured together to work as a single unit before installation into
the hanger.
OPTIONS: See Hanger Options, page 164, for hanger modifications
and associated load reductions.
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.
The table indicates the
maximum allowable loads
for WNP hanger used on
wood nailers. Nailers are
wood members attached to
the top of a steel I-beam,
concrete or masonry wall.
This table also applies to
sloped-seat hangers.

Heel Height
(Truss Designer to provide fastener
quantity for connecting multiple
members together)
1. Allowable loads shown consider
ANSI/TPI 1-2002 member design criteria.
2. For allowable loads on 2x10 girder
bottom chords, multiple ply hangers and
on SPF/HF header wood species, see
Technical Bulletin T-REDHEEL.
3. HGUS, HHUS and HGUQ hangers
installed with the joist fastener quantities
shown above are recommended for
installation on minimum 2-ply 2x girder
bottom chords. See T-REDHEEL for
HHUS and HGUQ allowable loads.
4. Allowable loads are based on the lowest
joist fastener holes filled. For the LUS, fill
the two lowest joist fasteners holes on
the right side of the hanger and the single
lowest joist fastener hole on the left side
of the hanger.
5.Wind (133) and (160) is a download rating.

Plated Truss Connectors

MUS completes the Simpson Strong-Tie line of face mount truss


to truss connectors. The MUS has increased load capacity and bearing
compared to LUS connectors for medium load truss applications.
All hangers in this series have double shear nailing. This patented
innovation distributes the load through two points on each joist nail
for greater strength. It also allows the use of fewer nails, faster
installation, and the use of common nails for all connections.
(Do not bend or remove tabs)
MATERIAL: See tables on page 108 and 109.
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in stainless steel or
Z-MAX; see Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Nails must be driven at an angle through the joist or truss
into the header to achieve the table loads.
Not designed for welded or nailer applications.
16d sinkers (9 gauge x 3") may be used where 10d
commons are specified with no reduction in load. Where
16d commons are specified, 10d commons or 16d sinkers
(9 gauge x 3") may be used at 0.85 of the table load.
With 3x carrying members, use 16d x 2" nails into the
header and 16d commons into the joist with no load
reduction. With single 2x carrying members, use 10d x 1"
nails into the header and 10d commons into the joist, and
reduce the load to 0.64 of the table value.
OPTIONS: LUS and MUS hangers cannot be modified.
HUS hangers available with the header flanges turned
in for 2-2x (3) and 4x only, with no load reduction.
See HUSC Concealed Flange illustration.
Concealed flanges are not available for HGUS and HHUS.
See Hanger Options, page 164, for sloped and/or skewed HHUS models.
Other sizes available; consult your Simpson representative.
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.

MOUNT
TRUSS HANGERS
HTU FACE

The new HTU face mount truss hangers have nail patterns designed
specifically for shallow heel heights, so that full allowable loads (with minimum nailing) apply to heel heights as low as 3". Minimum and maximum
nailing options provide solutions for varying heel heights and end conditions.
Alternate allowable loads are provided for gaps between the end of
the truss and the carrying member greater than " (maximum gap for
standard allowable loads is " per ASTM D-1761).
MATERIAL: 16 gauge FINISH: Galvanized
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Can be installed filling round holes only, or filling round and
triangle holes for maximum values.
For single 2x carrying members, use N10 (10dx1") nails into
the header and reduce the allowable download to 0.70 of the table
value. The allowable uplift is 100% of the table load.
Min. Heel
See alternate installation for applications using the HTU28 or
Height
HTU210 on a 2x6 carrying member for additional uplift capacity.

1. Loads may not be increased for short-term loading.


2. Truss or rafter must be bearing on top plate to achieve the
allowable loads under WITHOUT GAP.
3. When installed with maximum " space between rafter or truss
and top plate, use loads listed under WITH GAP. Where loads
are not required, space is not limited to ".

Nails should not be


driven completely

Typical THA29
Minimum Nailing
Installation

This product is preferable to similar connectors because of a) easier installation,


b) higher loads, c) lower installed cost, or a combination of these features.

The THA series extra long straps allow full code nailing and
can be field-formed to give top flange hanger convenience.
MATERIAL: See table.
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in Z-MAX;
see Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Two different installation methods may be used:
Maximum nailingInstall all face nails according to
the table. Nails used for the joist attachment must be
driven at an angle so that they penetrate through the
corner of the joist into the header. With single 2x
carrying members, use 10dx1" nails into the carrying
member, and 10d or 16d commons into the carried
member, and use 0.81 of the table value for 18 gauge,
and 0.68 of the table value for 16 gauge.
THA29
Minimum nailingFor the THA29, the minimum
nailing schedule requires the use of joist double
shear nailing as detailed above, and that the
strap be field-formed over the header a minimum
of 2". A minimum of four top and four face
nails must be used. For all models except the
THA29, the minimum nailing schedule may be
followed where double shear nailing is not
possible, provided the strap is field-formed
over the top of the header a minimum of
1" for the THA213 and THA413, and 2" for
all others, and a minimum of four top and
two face nails are used.

Step 1
Double angle cut the gable brace
to sit flat on the wall double top
plate and flush against the gable
end truss for 2x4 top plate. The
double angle cuts should form
a 90 angle on the end of the
gable brace.

Step 2
Set each GBC on top of the
double top plate so that the
bend line slots are flush with
the inside edge of the double
top plate. Install fasteners into
the top of the double top plate.

Step 3
Bend GBC legs (one time
only) over the inside of the
double top plate and install
fasteners.

Step 4
Install fasteners into the
gable brace.
NOTE: Attach the other end
of the gable brace to blocking
at the roof diaphragm as
directed by the Designer.

One size works with any number of girder plys. The TBE transfers load from the
truss or girder to plates for bearing-limited conditions, and provides exceptional uplift
capacity. Replaces nail-on scabs that provide lower load transfer, or in some cases, an
additional ply when needed for bearing.
The table lists allowable loads for TBE4 used on 2x4 and TBE6 used on 2x6 top
plates. The table gives the different loads calculated for TBE with and without wood
bearing. See Fastener Schedule below and page 123 for Alternate Installation.

Plated Truss Connectors

The TC truss connector is an ideal connector for scissor


trusses and can allow horizontal movement up to 1. The TC
also attaches plated trusses to top plates or sill plates to resist
uplift forces. Typically used on one or both ends of truss as
determined by the building designer.
MATERIAL: 16 gauge
FINISH: Galvanized
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Drive 10d nails into the truss at the inside end of the slotted
holes (inside end is towards the center of the truss). Do not
seat these nails into the trussallow room under the nail
head for movement of the truss with respect to the wall.
After installation of roofing materials nails may be required
to be fully seated into the truss. (As required by the
Designer or Truss Designer.)
Optional TC Installation
Bend one flange up 90. Drive specified nails into the top
and face of the top plates or install Titen screws into the
top and face of masonry wall. See optional load tables and

The TSF is a fast and accurate method for spacing trusses that eliminates layout
marking of top plates and can be left in place under the sheathing. Accuracy is
improved, spacing errors are minimized, and it is easy to use.
MATERIAL: 24 gauge. FINISH: Galvanized.
INSTALLATION: See Installation Sequence below.
TSF Truss Spacers do not provide bracing of any kind and
are not structural members. The TSF is for spacing only.
Refer to instructions from architect, engineer, truss manufacturer
or other for bracing and installation information.

MULTI-PLY WOOD TRUSSES APPLICATIONS


TWO-PLY 4X2 FLOOR TRUSSES
For more information, request T-SDSCREWAPPS.
The use of Strong-Drive screws insures that loads are adequately supported by
both trusses. (Testing has shown that most currently available light gauge steel
connectors do not uniformly distribute applied loads to both trusses.)
In addition differential deflection between the two trusses is reduced.
1. Screw spacing shall not exceed 24" o.c. and shall not be less than 4" o.c.
A minimum end distance of 3" shall be provided at all truss members.
2. Gap between the trusses shall not exceed 1/8".
3. Floor sheathing shall be screwed (or nailed) to each truss top chord.
(Fastener spacing per the applicable Code requirements, or 12" o.c. max.)
4. Strong-Drive screws shall be installed with the screw heads in the loaded truss.
If the screws are installed in the wrong truss face, install additional screws in the
correct face with a maximum spacing of 2x the required spacing, not to exceed
24" o.c. Offset the additional screws from the existing screws to prevent splitting.
5. Do not install Strong-Drive screws through metal truss plates unless approved
by the Truss Designer pre-drilling is required.
6. The Truss Designer shall ensure that each truss is designed for the appropriate
load(s) considering the location of the applied load(s) and the location of the
Strong-Drive screws.
7. The Truss Designer shall design all trusses and the truss system to meet all
Code and ANSI-TPI requirements.
8. Individual screw locations may be adjusted up to 3" to avoid conflicts with
other hardware or to avoid lumber defects.
9. Strong-Drive screws shall not be installed in areas where lumber wane exceeds ".

HU/HUC/HSUR/L HANGERS
HU and HUC products are heavy duty face mount joist hangers made from 14 gauge galvanized steel.
The HUC is a concealed flange version of the HU. Concealed flange hangers
have the face flanges turned in.
HU is available with A flanges concealed, provided the W dimension is 2"
or greater, at 100% of the table load. Specify HUC.
HU is available with one flange concealed when the W dimension is less than
2" at 100% of the table load.
Installation:
These hangers are attached to full grouted CMU walls using " x 2" hex head Titen screws.
Titen screws are not provided.
Drill the " diameter hole to the specified embedment depth plus ".
Alternatively, drill the " diameter hole to the specified embedment depth and
blow it clean using compressed air.
Caution: Oversized holes in the base material will reduce or eliminate the mechanical interlock
of the threads with the base material and will reduce the anchor's load capacity.
The hangers should be installed such that a minimum end
and edge distance of 1" is maintained.
Not recommended for exposed external applications.

TRUSS ANCHORS
AND TRUSS SEAT SNAP-IN
META/HETA/HHETA/HETAL/TSS EMBEDDED

The embedded truss anchor series provides an engineered method to properly attach
roof trusses to concrete and masonry walls. The products are designed with staggered nail
patterns for greater uplift resistance. Information regarding the use of two anchors on
single- and multi-ply trusses is included.
The TSS, a companion product of the META, provides a moisture barrier between the
concrete and truss. The preassembled unit is riveted with no height adjustment.
MATERIAL: HHETA14 gauge; HETA16 ga; HETAL strap 16 gauge, truss seat 18 gauge;
META18 gauge; TSS22 gauge.
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in Z-MAX; see Corrosion Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
The META, HETA and HHETA are embedded 4" into a concrete beam or
grouted block wall; HETAL is embedded 5".
Do not drive nails through the truss plate on the opposite side of the truss,
which could force the plate off the truss.
The TSS moisture barrier may be preattached to the truss using 6d commons.

FGTR FACE

The new Face Mount Girder Tiedown (FGTR) is a non-pitch


specific girder tiedown that can be used in new construction or
retrofit applications to tie down a girder to a concrete or masonry
wall. The product can be installed in a single application or in pairs
to achieve a higher uplift capacity.
MATERIAL: Straps7 gauge; Plate3 gauge
FINISH: Powder coated
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Product shall be installed to a minimum of a two-ply truss.
To achieve the loads listed in the table below, the product
shall be attached to a grouted and reinforced block wall or
a reinforced concrete wall designed by others to transfer
the high concentrated uplift loads to the foundation.

HRS6

The HRS, a heavy 12 gauge strap tie, provides greater support in


construction and repair of home projects. Straight lines and chamfered
edges for better appearance. Easy nailing pattern for connecting the
sides of 2x members.
The MSTC series has countersunk nail slots for a lower nailing profile.
Coined edges ensure safer handling.
Install Strap Ties where plates or soles are cut, at wall intersections,
and as ridge ties. LSTA and MSTA straps are engineered for use on 1"
members. The 3" center-to-center nail spacing reduces the possibility of
splitting. For the MST, this may be a problem on lumber narrower than
3"; either fill every nail hole with 10dx1" nails or fill every other nail
hole with 16d commons. Reduce the allowable load based on the size and
quantity of fasteners used. The LSTI light strap ties are suitable where
gun-nailing is necessary through diaphragm decking and wood chord
open web trusses.

but DO NOT include a 33% stress increase on the steel capacity. Refer to page 12 for further explanation.
2. 10dx1" nails may be substituted where 16d sinkers are specified at 0.77 of the table loads.
3. 10d commons may be substituted where 16d sinkers are specified at 100% of table loads.
4. 16d sinkers (9 gauge x 3") or 10d commons may be substituted where 16d commons are specified at
0.85 of the table loads.
5. Use half of the nails in each member being connected to achieve the listed loads.
6. PS strap design loads must be determined by the building designer for each installation. Bolts are installed
both perpendicular and parallel-to-grain. Hole diameter in the part may be oversized to accommodate the HDG.
Designer must determine if the oversize creates an unacceptable installation.
7. For overlap splice details, refer to T-CMST.

1. Loads include a 33% or 60% load duration


increase on the fasteners for earthquake or
wind loading, but DO NOT include a 33%
stress increase on the steel capacity. Refer
to page 12 for further explanation.
2. 10d commons may be substituted where
16d sinkers are specified at 100% of the
table loads.
3. 16d sinkers (9 gauge x 3") or 10d commons
may be substituted where 16d commons are
specified at 0.85 of the table loads.
4. Allowable bolt loads are based on parallel-tograin loading and these minimum member
thicknesses: MST2"; HST2 and HST54";
HST3 and HST64".
5. Use half of the nails in each member being
connected to achieve the listed loads.
6. For overlap splice details, refer to T-CMST.

the connection. To calculate a reduced capacity use 129 lb. per nail for
DFL/SYP or 112 lb. per nail for HF/SPF.
2. Nails in studs/post shall be installed symmetrically. Nails may be installed
over the entire length of the strap over the studs/post.
3. The 3" wide beam may be double 2x members.
4. MSTC48B3 and MSTC66B3 installed over sheathing up to " thick
achieve 0.85 of table loads.
5. Loads govern by the lower of .125" deflection from static tests on wood

FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in Z-MAX; see Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
Wood shrinkage after strap installation across horizontal wood members may cause strap to buckle outward.
Refer to the applicable code for minimum nail penetration and minimum wood edge and end distances.
The table shows the maximum allowable loads and the nails required to obtain them.
See footnote #2. Fewer nails may be used; reduce the allowable load by the code lateral load

What is the perpendicular-to-plate load?
What is the species of wood used for the rafter and the top plates?
(Select the load table based on the lowest performing species of wood.)
5. Will the hurricane tie be nailed into both top plates or the upper top plate only?
6. What load or loads will the hurricane tie be taking?
Allowable simultaneous loads in more than one direction on a single
connector must be evaluated as follows:
Design Uplift/Allowable Uplift + Design Lateral Parallel to Plate / Allowable
Lateral Parallel to Plate + Design Lateral Perpendicular to Plate / Allowable
Lateral Perpendicular to Plate < 1.0.

HURRICANE TIES
H SEISMIC

The H16-2 series has a presloped seat of , for double trusses.


The H connector series provides wind and seismic ties for trusses and rafters.
The presloped seat of the H16 provides for a tight fit and reduced deflection.
The strap length provides for various truss height up to a maximum of 13
(H16 series). Minimum heel height for H16 series is 4.
The HGA10 attaches to gable trusses and provides good lateral wind resistance.
The HS24 attaches the bottom chord of a truss or rafter at pitches from 0:12 to 4:12
to double 2x4 top plates. Double shear nailing allows for higher lateral resistance.
MATERIAL: See table
FINISH: Galvanized. See Corrosion-Resistance, page 5.
INSTALLATION: Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
The HGA10KT: screws are provided.
HS24 requires slant nailing only when bottom chord of truss
or rafter has no slope.
Hurricane Ties do not replace solid blocking.

AND PLATES

The larger LTP5 spans subfloor at the top of the blocking


or rim joist. The embossments enhance performance and the
min/max nailing option allows for design flexibility.
The LTP4 Lateral Tie Plate transfers shear forces for top
plate-to-rim joist or blocking connections. Nail holes are
spaced to prevent wood splitting for single and double top
plate applications. May be installed over plywood sheathing.
The A35 anchors exclusive bending slot allows instant,
accurate field bends for all two- and three-way ties. Balanced,
completely reversible design permits the A35 to secure a
great variety of connections.
MATERIAL: LTP4/LTP520 gauge; all others18 gauge
FINISH: Galvanized. Some products available in stainless

each side of the joist, the minimum joist thickness is 3".
2. Roof loads are 125% of floor loads unless limited by other criteria.
3. Some illustrations show connections that could cause cross-grain
tension or bending of the wood during loading if not reinforced
sufficiently. In this case, mechanical reinforcement should be considered.
4. G and H direction only: LTP4 can be installed over " plywood
with 8dx1" nails and achieve .72 of the listed load, or over " and
achieve .64 of the listed load. 8d commons will achieve 100% load.

ICF LEDGER
CONNECTOR SYSTEM
The ICFLC, ICFLC-W, & ICFLC-CW ledger connector system is engineered
to solve the challenges of mounting steel or wood ledgers on insulated concrete
form (ICF) walls. Simpson's ledger connector system is easy, quick and versatile
to use. The perforations in the embedded leg of the ICFLC permit the concrete
to flow around it anchoring the ICFLC securely within the concrete. The exposed
flange provides a structural surface for mounting either a wood or a steel ledger.
MATERIAL: ICFLC14 gauge; ICFLC-W and ICFLC-CW16 gauge.
FINISH: Galvanized.
INSTALLATION: Snap chalk line for bottom of ledger.
Mark required on center spacing.
Cut vertical kerfs at marks.
Insert ICFLC
Place concrete.
For Steel Ledger: Position steel ledger against ICFLC.
Attach with three -14x" #3 drill pt. screws (not provided).
Minimum screw shear capacity is 750 lbs.
For Wood Ledger: Slip ICFLC-W underneath wood ledger.
Attach the 6 D3 screws (provided) partially into ledger, starting
at the bottom of the ICFLC-W.
Position the ICFLC-W or ICFLC-CW with the ledger against the
ICFLC, and drive the screws through the wood and the ICFLC.
CODES: See page 10 for Code Listing Key Chart.
