PS/PSQ pile straps are ideal for attaching girders to piles, bringing strength to the connection when the wood members are notched. The new PSQ installs faster and easier with the patented Strong-Drive® SDWH Timber-Hex HDG screws and offers higher loads. (Screws not included.)
HDG. Also available in black powder coat (add PC to SKU); contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
Posts and beams may consist of multiple members provided they are connected independently of the strap fasteners.
PSQ loads are per part (not pair). F1 loads on DF/SP for PSQ218 and PSQ418 are 750 lb. and 780 lb., respectively. SPF/HF F1 loads are 645 lb. and 670 lb.
PS loads are per part (not pair). Loads are based on perpendicular-to-grain loading in the beam and parallel-to-grain loading in the post and assume a minimum member thickness of 3 1/2". PS straps must be positioned such that bolt end and edge distances meet NDS minimum requirements.
