Strong-Drive® SD CONNECTOR Screw


The Strong-Drive® SD CONNECTOR screw is specifically designed for use with Simpson Strong-Tie® connectors

Designed to replace nails in certain products, the load-rated SD screw has been tested and approved for use in many popular Simpson Strong-Tie® products. In certain applications screws are easier and more convenient to install than nails, and the single-fastener load values achieved by the SD9 and SD10 exceed those of typical 10d common or 16d common nails, respectively. In addition, the galvanized coating makes the SD screw ideal for interior and most exterior conditions.

The SD structural-connector screw features an optimized shank which is specifically designed to be compatible with the fastener holes in Simpson Strong-Tie connectors. The hex head virtually eliminates cam-out and helps avoid stripping of the head during installation. The sharp point of the screw enables fast starts, and the patented serrated threads reduce torque for improved drivability.

CODE REPORTS

Strong-Drive® SD Screws for Structural Connectors

ICC-ES has issued ESR-3046, stating that Strong-Drive® SD Screws for Structural Connectors screws are in compliance with the 2006/2009 IBC, in accordance with the most recent Acceptance Criteria for Alternate Dowel-type Threaded Fasteners (AC233).

Structural Connectors using Strong-Drive® SD Screws
ICC-ES has issued ESR-3096, recognizing the use of SD9 and SD10 Strong-Drive® Screws with many Simpson Strong-Tie® connectors.

Allowable Shear Loads with Steel Side Plate
SD Screw Allowable Loads: Steel Side Plate
  1. Allowable loads are shown at the wood load duration factor of CD = 1.00. Loads may be increased for load duration per the building code up to a CD = 1.60.
  2. Allowable withdrawal load for DF/SP is 173 lbs./in. and for SPF/HF withdrawal is 122 lbs./in.. Total withdrawal load is based on actual thread penetration into the main member.
  3. Withdrawal load for wood side member thickness of 15/32" is limited to the pull-through load of 130 lbs.


Allowable Shear Loads with Wood Side Plate
SD Screw Allowable Loads: Steel Side Plate
  1. Allowable loads are shown at the wood load duration factor of CD = 1.00. Loads may be increased for load duration per the building code up to a CD = 1.60.
  2. The 15/32" and 23/32" side members must be plywood or OSB with minimum equivalent specific gravities of 0.50 for DF and SP design values, and 0.42 for SPF and HF design values.
