RTC/FWH Rigid Tie® Connectors


The RTC series secures two wood members to a vertical post forming a 90° corner. The RTC42 and RTC44 are heavy-duty structural connectors. Based on loads of 40 lbs per sq. ft., a 10'x10' deck can be built using 2x8 joists and 4 RTC42s. See the table for Post and Joist sizes.

RTB - a bracket for intersecting 2x members.

FWH - 4 way connectors for 2x members with bendable flanges.

RTA - connects two 2x wood members at a 90° angle.

RTF - connects two members in a "pass-through" application.

RTR and RTU - a 2x member crosses another.

RTC24 and RTC24Z Discontinued in 2014

The RTC24 and RTC24Z models are being discontinued and will have limited availability. Simpson Strong-Tie recommends substituting the new RTC2Z Rigid Tie® Connector for these items.

Material: RTC44—14 gauge; RTA2—16 gauge; RTR and RTB—20 gauge; all others—18 gauge

Finish: Galvanized. Some products available in stainless steel or ZMAX® coating; see Corrosion Information.

Installation:

WARNING: Industry studies show that hardened fasteners can experience performance problems in wet and corrosive environments. Accordingly, use the SD8x1.25 in dry, interior, and non-corrosive environments only.
