Seismic and Hurricane Ties

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

The H10S holds the rafter or truss on both sides for higher uplift applications with wood, concrete or concrete masonry walls. The longer bottom strap extends down the wall for higher capacity. Installation is fast and easy with the Simpson Strong-Tie® Titen® HD screw anchors providing higher capacity. These double-sided hurricane ties provide faster installation than using two single-sided straps.

Key Features

  • Provides a connection between the truss or rafter and the wall of the structure that helps resist wind and seismic forces
  • Provides high uplift and lateral capacity using Titen HD
  • The embossments add stiffness in crucial areas for improved performance

Material

  • 43 mil (18 ga.)

Finish

  • Galvanized (G90)

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • Connectors attached using hex head Titen HD.
  • Attach to grouted concrete block with a minimum one #5 rebar horizontal in the course.
  • 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.

Load Tables

  1. See General Notes for Straps and Ties.
  2. Allowable loads in the F1 direction are not intended to replace diaphragm boundary members or cross-grain bending of the truss or rafter members.
  3. When cross-grain bending or cross-grain tension cannot be avoided in the members, mechanical reinforcement to resist such forces shall be considered by the Designer.
  4. Hurricane ties are shown on the outside of the wall for clarity and assume a minimum overhang of 3 1/2". Installation on the inside of the wall is acceptable (see General Instructions for the Installer, note "p" on p. 18). For uplift continuous load path, install connectors in the same area (e.g., truss-to-plate connector and plate-to-stud connector) on the same side of the wall, unless detailed by designer. See technical bulletin T-C-HTIECON for more information.
  5. Refer to Simpson Strong-Tie® technical bulletin T-C-HTIEBEAR for allowable bearing enhancement loads.
  6. H10S can have the stud offset a maximum of 1" from the rafter (center to center) for a reduced uplift of 890 lb. (DF/SP) and 765 lb. (SPF).
  7. H10S nails to plates are optional for uplift but required for lateral loads.
  8. Some load values for the stainless-steel connectors shown here are lower than those for the carbon-steel versions. Ongoing test programs have shown this also to be the case with other stainless-steel connectors in the product line that are installed with nails. Visit General Corrosion Risks for updated information.
  9. The allowable loads of stainless-steel connectors match carbon-steel connectors when installed with stainless-steel Strong-Drive® SCNR Ring-Shank Connector nails. For more information, refer to engineering letter L-F-SSNAILS.
  10. Fasteners: Nail dimensions in the table are listed diameter by length. For additional information, see Fastener Types and Sizes Specified for Simpson Strong-Tie Connectors.
