Roof Truss and Rafter Connectors, Ties, and Straps

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Roof Truss and Rafter Connectors, Ties, and Straps. You can also view product information related to the category: Seismic and Hurricane Ties

The H7Z is a hurricane tie designed for moderate-to-high uplift loads. As part of a continuous load path, the H7Z ties the rafter or truss to both the top track and the stud. The unique, versatile design allows the tie to be folded over the top of the rafter or truss for a secure fit.

Key Features

  • Provides a connection between the truss or rafter and the wall of the structure that helps resist wind and seismic forces
  • Embossment in bend line strengthens connection
  • Use also for a variety of connections where one member crosses another

Material

  • 16 ga.

Finish

  • ZMAX® coating; see Corrosion Information

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • Hurricane ties do not replace solid blocking.
  • When installing ties on plated trusses (on the side opposite the truss plate) do not fasten through the truss plate from behind.This can force the truss plate off of the truss and compromise truss performance.

    These products are available with additional corrosion protection.

  1. Loads are based on attachment of cold-formed steel members having a minimum thickness of 33 mil (20 ga.).
  2. Hurricane tie is shown installed on the outside of wall for clarity. Installation inside of wall is acceptable. For Continuous Load Path, connections in the same area must be on same side of wall.
  3. See Fastening Systems for more information on Simpson Strong-Tie fasteners.
  1. Allowable loads on wood have been increased 60% for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other load duration factors govern.
  2. Hurricane tie is shown installed on the outside of wall for clarity. Installation inside of wall is acceptable. For Continuous Load Path, connections must be on same side of wall.
  3. When cross-grain bending or cross-grain tension cannot be avoided, mechanical reinforcement to resist such force should be considered.
