Single-sided hurricane tie is designed to resist moderate to high uplift loads at the stud-to-double-top-plate and the rim-joist-to-stud connections. The length of the tie makes it ideal for applications where spanning a larger distance between members is necessary.
Single-Sided Hurricane Tie Features
Forms part of a continuous load path to resist wind and seismic forces
Suitable for both wood and cold-formed steel applications
Available in left- and right-hand models; can be installed in pairs
Single-Sided Hurricane Tie Installation
Install with common nails.
The hurricane ties connect trusses or rafters to the top of wall.
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.
