The HPT hurricane tie provides a key rafter-to-wall connection for retrofit applications located in Hawaii.
The HPT is specially designed and tested for single-wall homes and meets Hawaii state requirements for uplift resistance. The unique design of the HPT connects the wall to the rafter, avoiding interference from the blocking. The strengthened transition area of the HPT helps the structure resist high wind and allows the transfer of forces from the roof to the wall to help prevent damage. For applications where the blocking does not interfere, the H3Z is the recommended solution. The H3Z also meets Hawaii state requirements for uplift resistance. H3SS is stainless steel for maximum corrosion resistance.
