New RPBZ Retrofit Post Base Simplifies Post Reinforcement posted 12/16/14
RPBZ

Pleasanton, Calif. – The new Simpson Strong-Tie® RPBZ retrofit post base is designed for professionals and do-it-yourselfers to easily reinforce new or existing post-base connections for outdoor structures, such as braced carports, patio covers and trellises.

The RPBZ fits any size post that is a double 2x4 or larger. It is specifically designed to be installed onto concrete or wood with Simpson Strong-Tie fasteners or anchors, depending on the material. A single RPBZ can be installed on a post that is flush to a corner or two RPBZs can be installed away from edges. If necessary to meet a 1" post standoff code requirement, the RPBZ can be installed with a CPS composite plastic standoff (sold separately).

Other key benefits of the RPBZ include:

  • Attaches to the post and wood deck easily with Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws. On concrete, an installer can either use 3/8" diameter all-thread rod with Simpson Strong-Tie anchoring adhesives in exterior applications or Titen HD® heavy-duty screw anchors or Titen® masonry screws in interior-dry and noncorrosive environments.
  • Functions as a temporary base fixture for shoring beams when remodeling or for securing temporary structures.
  • Features a ZMAX® corrosion-resistant coating for exterior and preservative-treated wood applications.

New Simpson Strong-Tie Fastener Provides Installers a Faster, Easier and Safer Solution for Pile Construction in Coastal Areas posted 12/3/14
SDWH Timber Hex-HDG screw

Pleasanton, Calif. – The new Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDWH Timber Hex-HDG screw requires no pre-drilling and replaces bolt, washer and nut assemblies, saving installers’ time and cost. It is specifically designed to resist severe corrosion levels in heavy-duty marine and coastal applications, such as piers, boardwalks, structural pilings and docks.

This .276" diameter hot-dip galvanized screw features a SawTooth™ point and oversized integral washer, which eliminate the need for pre-drilling and a separate washer. Reducing the installation time with a fast, easy driving screw is particularly beneficial to installers who are either on a lift or suspended 15 feet off the ground drilling holes through 12-14" thick piles.

The screw's hot-dip galvanized coating meets the requirements of ASTM A153, Class C, making it suitable for heavy-duty marine and coastal applications. Another key benefit is the ability to install it from one side of the pile.

"We developed this screw after talking to installers in coastal areas of the country where building codes require using structural pilings. We specifically designed, tested and now are manufacturing a hot-dip galvanized screw that will install faster than conventional bolts, saving time and money," said Dr. Ed Sutt, Simpson Strong-Tie Vice President for Fastening Systems. "It's exciting for us to be able to engineer and introduce a new product that our customers haven't had until now. It's especially gratifying that this new fastener will help them complete a difficult task faster and safer."

The SDWH Timber Hex-HDG screw is available in five lengths, ranging from 4" to 12" and features a 3/8" hex-drive head for secure driving. Click here for more product information.



New Post Caps Designed to Offer More Versatility, Easier Installation posted 11/24/14
EPC6Z Installed

Pleasanton, Calif. – The next-generation Simpson Strong-Tie® PCZ and EPCZ post caps now feature in-line post and header flanges, which provide more flexibility in choosing the post size while also enabling easier installation when making the post-to-beam connection.

These new post caps are designed to accommodate several 4x or 6x post sizes for a variety of applications, including decks, patio covers and interior framing applications. The 16-gauge PCZ and EPCZ now can be fastened with easier-to-install 10d common or #10dx2 1/2" nails, as well as #9x1 1/2" Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SD Connector screws.

By replacing the PC and EPC post caps, respectively, the PCZ and EPCZ represent how product innovation can help with easier installation as well as inventory control. The new in-line flange design allows one PCZ or EPCZ to be installed with several 4x or 6x post sizes. Fewer overall models to accommodate multiple post sizes helps streamline specification, product ordering and inventory management.

Other key benefits include:

  • ZMAX® coating offers additional corrosion protection for exterior and preservative-wood applications
  • Compact, optimized design can be easily hidden with finish materials when architectural design is important
  • Center-of-post guide is stamped on part for easy alignment

New Code Report for Blue Banger Hanger® Cast-In-Place, Internally Threaded Inserts in Cracked and Uncracked Concrete posted 11/20/14
Blue Banger Hanger

Pleasanton, Calif. – The Simpson Strong-Tie® Blue Banger Hanger® threaded insert has received the first International Building Code (IBC) report issued for a specialty cast-in-place insert.

The code report (ICC-ES ESR-3707) is the first one for this type of anchor under ICC-ES AC 446. The code report:

  • Covers all sizes of the Blue Banger Hanger wood form inserts and metal deck inserts
  • Addresses both cracked and uncracked normal-weight concrete and sand-lightweight concrete
  • Addresses static, wind and seismic loads

Blue Banger Hanger internally-threaded inserts are cast into the underside of concrete deck after being fastened to the top of wood forms or metal decks. The high-strength, easy-to-install wood-form and metal-deck anchors have been tested and shown to provide outstanding performance in cracked and uncracked concrete under both static and seismic loading conditions.

In the last 10 years, this type of cast-in-place insert has grown in popularity for anchoring suspended mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipment, piping and conduit. These types of anchors are quickly fastened to wood formwork or through corrugated metal deck before concrete is poured.

The Simpson Strong-Tie design is the only pre-pour insert to offer the patented multi-thread design that enables one size insert to handle multiple diameters of threaded rod. This gives flexibility to the installer in layout and to the designer in case the loads and threaded rod sizes are changed during construction.

"Until now, engineers who wanted to specify these anchors had to address the question of code-compliance every time they used them. Now, this new code report gives engineers increased confidence that they can properly design and specify the Simpson Strong-Tie Blue Banger Hanger and still comply with the requirements of the 2012 IBC," said Ryan Vuletic, Simpson Strong-Tie Manager of Engineering/R&D for Anchor Systems.

Simpson Strong-Tie® CPTZ Concealed Post Base Named to This Old House List of Top 100 Best New Home Products of 2014 posted 10/27/14
CPTZ Concealed Post Base

Pleasanton, Calif. – This past Friday, This Old House named the Simpson Strong-Tie® CPTZ concealed post base to its 4th annual "The TOH Top 100," a list of the 100 best new home products of the year.

The CPTZ concealed post base is designed to connect a wood post to concrete. It provides a clean, concealed look while providing a 1" standoff height above concrete. The 1" standoff reduces the potential for decay at the post end and satisfies code requirements for posts that are exposed to weather, water splash or in basements.

The TOH editors spent months testing and examining thousands of products to find the most distinctive, helpful and innovative new home products in seven categories: Kitchen, Bath, Tools, Building Products, Outdoor Living, Home Tech, and Finishing Touches. Featured in the November/December issue, each winning product is labeled with icons such as Money-Saver, Easy Upgrade, Eco-Friendly, Splurge, and Made in America.

"We are honored that our new concealed post base has been recognized by This Old House editors as one of their top 100 best products. It's a favorite new product among contractors because of the clean finish it provides, while still providing the required standoff height," said Tom McClain, Simpson Strong-Tie senior product manager for Core Products.

"Every year, there is an endless list of new home improvement products introduced to the marketplace. For the annual 'The TOH Top 100', we sift through them to identify the ones that will actually save our 10 million readers time and money while enabling them to fix up their homes with greater ease and style," says Editor Scott Omelianuk.

"The 2014 list is full of products that wowed us for their innovation and their ability to create breakthroughs in their categories," adds Omelianuk. "We are confident that our readers will be as excited by them as we are."

Seismic Retrofits Now Provide Earthquake Protection Later posted 10/14/14
Seismic Retrofit

Pleasanton, Calif. – In recognition of the 25th anniversary of the devastating Loma Prieta earthquake on Oct. 17, Simpson Strong-Tie, a leader in earthquake research, testing and structural products that result in safer, stronger homes and buildings, offers a checklist to help residents evaluate if their home is structurally sound and earthquake resistant, and if a seismic retrofit is needed:

  1. Do you live in a moderate or high seismic area?

    You can call your local building department and ask if you live in Seismic Design Category D, E or F. These categories are classifications assigned to homes and buildings with a high to very high seismic risk.
  2. Was your home built before 1985?

    Homes built prior to 1985 are typically more vulnerable to earthquake damage because they were not built to the same building code standards as homes today. Most homes built after 1985 were designed to conform to stricter building codes and are most likely better equipped to resist the force of an earthquake. Generally, homes built in the last 25-30 years should have been constructed with a continuous load path, which is a method of construction that ties your house together from the roof to the foundation using a system of framing materials, metal connectors, fasteners (like nails and screws) and reinforced walls called shearwalls. To confirm your home was built with a continuous load path, you can hire a professional engineer to perform a structural evaluation.
  3. Is your home built on a raised foundation?

    If your house is not built on a concrete slab, chances are it's built on a raised foundation (these homes typically have a crawl space). Raised foundations are typically built with posts, beams and cripple walls. Often times, these cripple walls have not been built to resist seismic forces and can be highly susceptible to structural failure in an earthquake.
  4. Is your home built on a hillside?

    Houses built on a hillside typically have raised foundations and crawl spaces as those described above and can experience similar failures. However, these failures tend to be more severe because the posts and cripple walls supporting the home are built at different heights due to the uneven terrain.
  5. Is there living space above your garage?

    Garages are vulnerable areas in a house due to the large garage door opening. Because of this large opening, the narrow walls on either side of the garage door must be designed to resist earthquake forces. This is extremely important if there is a living space above the garage because these rooms add weight that the garage must support. Current building codes require that these narrow walls be specially designed to resist earthquake forces. Older houses, however, typically were not designed to address this issue and are more vulnerable to damage during an earthquake.

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you should consider retrofitting your home. Before starting a seismic retrofit project, it's important to inspect and evaluate the structural integrity of your home. Hiring a professional will help ensure the retrofit is done right. There are seismic improvements that you can do on your own to strengthen your home, however, some cases may require a licensed engineer and contractor.

Simpson Strong-Tie opened a research laboratory in 2003 to better understand the effects of earthquakes, high winds and other natural disasters on a home's performance. The lab's state-of-the-art testing equipment can simulate the magnitude of seismic events like the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake in California, which measured 6.9 on the Richter scale. This ongoing testing and research is being conducted with the sole purpose of improving building design and safety through enhanced product development. Simpson Strong-Tie is committed to helping homeowners understand how to strengthen and protect their homes against the effects of earthquakes and other natural disasters.



Simpson Strong-Tie to Showcase New Fasteners and Deck Safety Demo at the Remodeling Show and DeckExpo posted 10/9/14
Deck-Drive Fastener Series

Pleasanton, Calif. – Simpson Strong-Tie will collapse a deck, demonstrate Quik Drive® auto-feed screw driving systems and highlight its new lines of Strong-Drive® structural fasteners and Deck-Drive™ screws at the Remodeling Show and DeckExpo in Baltimore, Oct 22-24, booths 1601 and 1801.

Here are descriptions of some of the Simpson Strong-Tie products and demonstrations that will be showcased:

Deck Collapse Demonstration

Every year, people across the country are seriously injured by unexpected deck failures. Most of these failures are preventable. To help raise awareness about the importance of deck safety and code-compliant construction, Simpson Strong-Tie will demonstrate a live deck collapse both days at 1 p.m. DeckExpo attendees are invited to visit Simpson Strong-Tie booth 1801 to witness the collapse. At the same time, they will learn about the common causes of deck failure and the critical connections in building a safe, code-compliant deck.

Quik Drive Systems Demonstration

Quik Drive auto-feed screw driving systems help save deck builders time and expense on jobsites every day. The tools are easy to use, durable and come with an extension that enables stand-up-and-drive fastening. Featuring quick-loading screw strips, precise countersink adjustment and a patented auto-advance mechanism, they are designed to be fast, reliable and more cost-effective than traditional nail guns. The Quik Drive® PRO300S Decking System comes with a decking nose attachment that centers screws on the joist and in a straight line. Simpson Strong-Tie representatives will be demonstrating the systems at booth 1601 throughout DeckExpo.

Strong-Drive Structural Fasteners

Simpson Strong-Tie Strong Drive structural screws provide deck builders with safe, high-strength alternatives to through-bolting and traditional lag screws. The low-profile Strong-Drive® SDWS TIMBER screw requires no pre-drilling and is designed for attaching deck ledgers. It offers higher loads than alternative lag solutions, which means up to 40% fewer screws. The Strong-Drive® SDWH TIMBER-HEX stainless steel screw requires no pre-drilling, offers high loads and is easier to drive than comparable fasteners. It is made of Type 316 stainless steel, providing the highest level of corrosion resistance, and it can be used in ledger applications.

Deck-Drive Premium Fasteners

This new line of premium outdoor wood screws offers superior performance for decking projects. Deck-Drive screws are designed for professional deck builders by offering unique features to speed installation. Whether the project calls for wood decking, premium composite or exotic hardwoods, these fasteners are designed to install faster and cleaner, which results in labor savings for contractors.

Simpson Strong-Tie Receives David Weekley Homes' Coveted "Partners of Choice" Award for 10th Consecutive Year posted 8/4/14
Simpson Strong-Tie Receives Award

Pleasanton, Calif. – For the 10th year in a row, Simpson Strong-Tie has been honored with the "Partners of Choice" Award by David Weekley Homes, the nation's largest privately held home builder. Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, has again earned an "A" ranking in both quality and service.

The Partners of Choice Award is the result of a rigorous supplier interactive feedback system that recognizes world-class excellence in supply chain management. Simpson Strong-Tie has been part of David Weekley's world-class evaluation program since its inception in 2003, and is one of only 13 companies this year to achieve the highly sought after double "A" ranking.

Nearly 800 employees at all levels within David Weekley Homes review the company's approximately 200 trading partners (suppliers) and rate them on both quality and service each quarter. The "National Trading Partner Survey" is a web-based, interactive feedback platform that tracks employee responses to measure how effectively partners are managing the supply chain. Partners are rated on a scale from 1-10. Numeric scores are averaged and an alpha ranking of A through F is assigned in 20 percent increments based on each company's relative standing to others. The award program honors suppliers who earn an "A" in quality, service or both within a 12-month period. The partner's results are shared every quarter to foster ongoing improvement within the program. This takes place through a series of individual and group discussions, mentoring calls and strategy sessions.

"By providing continuous feedback, we challenge our suppliers to be as competitive as possible in quality and service. Simpson Strong-Tie has done it for 10 years. This is a remarkable accomplishment, and we are pleased to once again present the Partners of Choice Award to our friends at Simpson Strong-Tie," said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain for David Weekley Homes. "This is a testament to Simpson Strong-Tie being a world-class provider. It ranks in the top 6% of all companies we do business with, and that is phenomenal when you consider they have done this for a decade."

Mike Moran, vice president of Simpson Strong-Tie builder programs, said receiving the Partners Choice Award for 10 consecutive years is great validation of the company's core values. "At Simpson Strong-Tie, we are committed to providing exceptional quality and service at all times. And as the rankings in the National Trading Partner Survey become more competitive every year, we are continuously improving to stay in the top tier of companies receiving an 'A' in both service and quality," he noted. "We are honored to be a chosen supplier of David Weekley Homes and a recipient of this coveted award."
