The HGA is designed to secure the truss to the top plate in gable end truss connections and other framing applications. The engineered gusset in the angle increases strength for lateral and uplift loads. This hurricane gusset angle installs easily with Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws.
Engineered for increased loads in high-wind or seismic events
Also available in kits including Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws
Galvanized and hot-dip galvanized
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes

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.
Allowable loads in the F1 direction are not intended to replace diaphragm boundary members or prevent cross-grain bending of the truss or rafter members. Additional shear transfer elements shall be considered where there may be effects of cross-grain bending or tension.
