WIND EFFECTS
Wind forces are generated from natural events like thunderstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes. These winds create forces that attack the integrity of a structure in multiple ways: vertically, resulting in uplift forces, and horizontally, resulting in overturning, sliding and racking forces. Without proper design and construction, these forces can produce structural damage and even destruction. Modern design and construction practices, such as structural connectors used in a continuous load path transfer system, can effectively resist these forces by reinforcing the structure from the roof to the foundation.

NEW PRODUCTS

HTT4 & HTT5

Tension Ties

The LTT/MTT/HTT series of tension ties offers tension-resisting solutions that install with nails. These new additions to the HTT line feature an optimized nailing pattern which results in better performance with less deflection. Designed to meet new code standards, the HTT4 and HTT5 offer higher loads than their predecessors the HTT16 and HTT22. For an added benefit, the HTT5 installs with 6 fewer nails than the HTT22.

LGT3-SDS2.5/LGT4-SDS3

Girder Tiedown

With over 3,200 lbs. of uplift, the LGT3-SDS2.5 and LGT4-SDS3 are high capacity girder tiedowns for girder trusses with three and four plies, respectively. These tiedowns do not require attachment to the top of the truss, allowing installation after the roof is sheathed. They attach to the truss with Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive screws (SDS) for higher load capacity, and a low-profile connection to the studs ensures easy installation of drywall. The LGT3-SDS2.5 and LGT4-SDS3 can be installed on the inside or outside of walls and provide additional bearing enhancement for heavy download applications.

MASA

Mudsill Anchor

MAS mudsill anchors have always been a time-saving alternative to mudsill anchor bolts, and now the new and improved design of the MASA provides for one-to-one replacement of " and " anchor bolts in 2x sill plates. Additional fasteners and the reinforcement of key sections of the anchor have improved performance so that the load capacity of the MASA mudsill anchor either meets or exceeds that of other cast-in-place anchors. Since the MASA can be installed as wide as 6' on center, the same load capacity can be achieved with fewer mudsill anchors.

C-HW09 2009 SIMPSON STRONG-TIE COMPANY INC.

TSP

Twist Stud Plate

The TSP offers higher loads in a tie that fastens on the side of the stud to reduce interference with drywall installation. Suitable for both top-plate and sill-plate applications.

VGT

Variable Girder Tiedown

The VGT is a higher capacity alternative to the LGT and MGT for girder trusses. It attaches with Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive screws (SDS) to the side of the truss and features a predeflected crescent washer that allows it to accommodate top chord pitches up to 8:12.

GENERAL NOTES
1. Refer to the current Simpson Strong-Tie Wood Construction Connectors catalog for connector load values, installation, fastener schedules and other important information including Terms and Conditions of Sale and Building Code Evaluation listings. 2. Throughout the catalog there are installation drawings showing the load transfer from one element in the structure to another. Additional connections may be required to safely transfer the loads through the structure. It is the Designers responsibility to specify and detail all necessary connections to ensure that a continuous load path is provided as required by the building code. 3. Loads are provided for a 160% load duration increase on the calculated capacity of the nails. No further load duration increase is allowed by the building code. Load values on every product DO NOT include a one-third increase on the steel capacity. 4. Unless otherwise noted, the allowable loads published in this catalog are limited to the lowest of: average recorded test load at " deflection, lowest ultimate recorded test load of 3 tests specimens divided by 3 (or the average of 6 specimens divided by 3), or the calculated value based on steel, wood bearing, and/or fastener capacity. 5. When multiple connectors are used, they must be installed so fastener locations do not overlap. 6. Unless otherwise noted, allowable loads are for use with Douglas Fir Larch or Southern Pine lumber. 7. Allowable simultaneous loads in more than one direction on a single connector must be evaluated as follows: Design Uplift/Allowable Uplift + Design Lateral Parallel to Plate/Allowable Lateral Parallel to Plate + Design Lateral Perpendicular to Plate/Allowable Lateral Perpendicular to Plate < 1.0. The three terms in the unity equation are due to the three possible directions that exist to generate force on a connector. The number of terms that must be considered for simultaneous loading is at the sole discretion of the Designer and is dependent on their method of calculating wind forces and the utilization of the connector within the structural system. 8. All references to bolts or MBs are for structural quality through bolts equal to or better than ASTM Standard A307, Grade A. Lag bolts and carriage bolts are not acceptable. All threaded rod or ATR shall be equal to or better than ASTM A36, Grade C. 9. Unless otherwise noted, all nails are common nails (refer to page 10). 10. Refer to Simpson Strong-Tie technical bulletin T-ANCHORSPEC for anchorage to concrete design. 11. Hurricane ties are shown installed on the outside of the wall for clarity. Installation on the inside of the wall is acceptable. For uplift Continuous Load Path, connection in the same area (i.e. truss-to-plate connector and plate-to-stud connector) must be on same side of the wall. 12. When installing hurricane ties on the inside of the wall special considerations must be taken to prevent condensation on the inside of the completed structure in cold climates. 13. Loads are in pounds, dimensions are in inches, unless otherwise noted. 14. Truss plates shown are not manufactured by Simpson Strong-Tie. 15. Built-up lumber (multiple members) must be fastened together to act as one unit to resist the applied load (excluding the connector fasteners). This must be determined by the Designer/Engineer of Record. 16. When connecting DF/SP members to SPF lumber, use SPF allowable loads.

CORROSION INFORMATION
Understanding the Issues
Metal connectors, anchors, and fasteners will corrode and may lose loadcarrying capacity when installed in corrosive environments or exposed to corrosive materials. There are many environments and materials which may cause corrosion including ocean salt air, fire retardants, fumes, fertilizers, preservative-treated wood, dissimilar metals, and other corrosive elements. The many variables present in a single building environment make it impossible to accurately predict if, or when, significant corrosion will begin or reach a critical level. This relative uncertainty makes it crucial that specifiers and users be knowledgeable of the potential risks and select a product coating or metal suitable for the intended use. It is also important that regular maintenance and periodic inspections are performed, especially for outdoor applications. It is common to see some corrosion on connectors especially in outdoor applications. Even stainless steel can corrode. The presence of some corrosion does not mean that load capacity has necessarily been affected or that a failure will occur. If significant corrosion is apparent or suspected, then the wood, fasteners and connectors should be inspected by a professional engineer or general contractor and may need to be replaced. In the last several years, preservative-treated wood formulations have changed significantly. Many of the new formulations are more corrosive to steel connectors and fasteners than the traditionally used formulation of CCA-C. Simpson Strong-Tie testing has shown that ACQ-C, ACQ-D (Carbonate), CBA-A and CA-B treated woods are approximately 2 times more corrosive than CCA-C, while SBX-DOT (Sodium Borate) treated woods were shown to be less corrosive than CCA-C. Refer to technical bulletin T-PTWOOD for more information. Due to the many different preservative formulations, fluctuating retention levels, moisture content, and because the formulations may vary regionally, or change without warning, understanding which connectors and fasteners to use with these materials has become a complex task. We have attempted to provide basic knowledge on the subject here, but it is important to fully educate yourself by reviewing our technical bulletins on the topic, and also by viewing information and literature provided by others. This information pertains to Simpson Strong-Tie connectors only. For corrosion information on other product lines, such as fasteners, see the specific Simpson Strong-Tie product line catalogs. Additionally, because the issue is evolving, it is important to get the very latest connector information on the topic by visiting our website at www.strongtie.com/info. Stainless steel is always the most effective solution to corrosion risk. However, it is also more expensive and sometimes more difficult to obtain. To best serve our customers, Simpson Strong-Tie is evaluating the options to identify the safest and most cost-effective solutions. Based on our testing and experience there are some specific applications that are appropriate for ZMAX/HDG or G90 connectors (see chart on page 9.) Because increased corrosion from some newer preservative-treated wood is a new issue with little historical data, we have to base our recommendations on the testing and experience we have to date. It is possible that as we learn more, our recommendations may change, but these recommendations are based on the best information we have at this time.

High Wind-Resistant Construction

CORROSION INFORMATION
General Simpson Strong-Tie Recommendations
Outdoor environments are generally more corrosive to steel. If you choose to use ZMAX or HDG finish on an outdoor project (i.e. deck, patio cover), you should periodically inspect your connectors and fasteners or have a professional inspection performed. Regular maintenance including waterproofing of the wood used in your outdoor project is also a good practice. For wood with actual retention levels greater than 0.40 pcf for ACQ and MCQ, 0.41 pcf for CBA-A, or 0.21 pcf for CA-B (Ground Contact), stainless-steel connectors and fasteners are recommended. Verify actual retention level with the wood treater. When using stainless-steel connectors, use stainless-steel fasteners. When using ZMAX/HDG galvanized connectors, use fasteners that meet the specifications of ASTM A153. Testing indicates wood installed dry reduces potential corrosion. If dry wood is used, see our website for additional information. Using a barrier membrane can provide additional corrosion protection, see technical bulletin T-PTBARRIER. Due to the many variables involved, Simpson Strong-Tie cannot provide estimates on service life of connectors, anchors or fasteners. We suggest that all users and Designers also obtain recommendations for HDG, ZMAX (G185), mechanically galvanized, or other coatings from the treated wood supplier for the type of wood used. However, as long as Simpson Strong-Tie recommendations are followed, we stand behind product performance and our standard warranty applies.

Guidelines for Selecting the Proper Connector


1 Evaluate the Application.
Consider the type of structure and how it will be used. These recommendations may not apply to non-structural applications such as fences.

5 with the Simpson Strong-Tie recommendation.

Compare the treated-wood suppliers recommendation

2 Evaluate the Environment.


Testing and experience indicate that indoor dry environments are less corrosive than outdoor environments. Determining the type of environment where a connector or fastener will be used is an important factor in selecting the most appropriate material and finish for use on the connectors and fasteners. To help in your decision making, consider the following general exposure information: Interior Dry Use: Includes wall and ceiling cavities, and raised floor applications of enclosed buildings that have been designed to ensure that condensation and other sources of moisture do not develop. Exterior Dry: Includes outdoor installations in low rainfall environments and no regular exposure to moisture. Exterior Wet: Includes outdoor installations in higher moisture and rainfall environments. Higher Exposure Use: Includes exposure to ocean-salt air, fire retardants, large bodies of water, fumes, fertilizers, soil, some preservative-treated woods, industrial zones, acid rain, and other corrosive elements. Type 316 stainless steel contains slightly more nickel than other grades, plus molybdenum, giving it better corrosion resistance in high-chloride environments.

If these recommendations are different, Simpson Strong-Tie recommends that the most conservative recommendation be followed.

Simpson Strong-Tie recommendations are as follows:


Low = Use standard painted and G90 galvanized connectors, or Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive screws (SDS) with the double-barrier coating, as a minimum. Med = Use ZMAX/HDG galvanized connectors as a minimum. Use HDG fasteners which meet the specifications of ASTM A153 or Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive screws (SDS) with double-barrier coating. High6 = Use Type 303, 304, 305 or 316 stainless-steel connectors and fasteners. CONNECTOR COATING RECOMMENDATION STRUCTURAL APPLICATIONS

Evaluate and select a suitable preservative-treated wood for 3 the intended application and environment.
The treated wood supplier should provide all the information needed regarding the wood being used. This information should include: the specific type of wood treatment used, if ammonia was used in the treatment, and the chemical retention level. If the needed information is not provided then Simpson Strong-Tie would recommend the use of stainless-steel connectors and fasteners. You should also ask the treated-wood supplier for a connector coating or material recommendation.

If a preservative-treated wood product is not identified on the chart, Simpson Strong-Tie has not evaluated test results regarding such product and therefore cannot make any recommendation other than the use of stainless steel with that product. Manufacturers may independently provide test results or other product use information; Simpson Strong-Tie expresses no opinion regarding any such information.

1. Woods with actual retention levels greater than 0.40 pcf for ACQ and MCQ, 0.41 pcf for CBA-A, or 0.21 pcf for CA-B (Ground Contact level). 2. Borate treated woods are not appropriate for outdoor use. 3. Test results indicate that ZMAX/HDG and the SDS double-barrier coating will perform adequately, subject to regular maintenance and periodic inspection. However, the nationally-approved test method used, AWPA E12-94, is an accelerated test, so data over an extended period of time is not available. If uncertain, use stainless steel. 4. Some treated wood may have excess surface chemicals making it potentially more corrosive. If you suspect this or are uncertain, use stainless steel. 5. Where noted in the table, applications where the wood is dry (moisture content less than 19%) when installed and will remain dry in-service may use a minimum coating recommendation of Low. 6. Type 316 stainless-steel connectors and fasteners are the minimum recommendation for ocean-salt air and other chloride environments.

1. For SPF trusses multiply table loads by 0.86 for uplift and F 2 directions (use F1 values as shown). 2. Unless noted otherwise, embedment is into either grout filled block (f'm = 1500 psi) or concrete (minimum f'c is 2000 psi for single strap installations and 2500 psi for double strap installations). 3. The HETAL requires 5 nails to be installed into the truss seat. 4. Multiple META, HETA, and HHETA are spaced at 1" for single ply and 3" for two ply and staggered as shown. 5. 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. 6. The HHETA allowable F1 load can be increased to 435 lbs. if the strap is wrapped over the truss and a minimum of 12 nails are installed. 7. For simultaneous loads in more than one direction, the connector must be evaluated as described in Note 7, page 8 under General Notes. 8. Where noted, install with spoons facing outward and straps spaced no more than " wider than the truss width. #5 Rebar 9. Where noted, install half of the required number of fasteners in each strap.

For single-ply applications use lateral loads from the Single Embedded Anchor Installation. 11. Where noted in table, F1 lateral loads listed may cause an additional " deflection beyond the standard " limit where the straps are installed not wrapped over the heel as shown. 12. Two HHETA anchors may be installed in a concrete tie beam on a two- or three-ply truss with 2 fewer nails for an allowable uplift load of 3050 lbs. 13. Single-ply trusses may use either 10dx1 or 16d nails with allowable loads as noted in table. Two- or three-ply trusses shall use 16d nails. Two META 14. It is acceptable to use a reduced number of fasteners provided that there is a Anchors 8,9 reduction in uplift load capacity. Lateral loads do not apply when fewer than 7 fasteners are used with the HETA and HHETA anchors or when fewer than 6-16d or 7-10dx1 fasteners are used with the META anchor. HETAL lateral loads do not apply when fewer than 5 fasteners are installed in strap 5 fasteners required in the truss seat.

ALTERNATIVE WIND UPLIFT RESTRAINT SYSTEM


The use of continuous rod, bearing plates, coupler nuts and anchors are an alternative method used to transfer wind uplift forces from the double top plates directly into the foundation providing a continuous load path within the wall system. It is recommended for multiple-story systems to compensate for wood shrinkage and settlement due to dead load through the use of a take-up device. Simpson Strong-Tie offers STU for " rods or the ATUD5 for rods up to " diameter. These devices are specially designed to take-up when shrinkage or compression occurs in the wall. The use of the ATUD5 or STU will ensure that when uplift occurs, the system is ready to perform without excessive deflection which can cause failures in other components of the wall. The following tables list the allowable loads for the components to be used in designing with this product. Listed below are other considerations which shall be accounted for in the design of this restraint method: The Designer shall determine the spacing of the rods based on the applied roof uplift forces as well as the effects of the double top plate in bending, rod capacity, bearing plate capacity and anchorage. Special considerations shall be made at top plate splices to control the bending (independently of existing wall sheathing fasteners). Full scale wind uplift testing at Simpson Strong-Tie, refer to flier F-TIEDOWNSPCE, indicates that spacing of any continuous rod system (regardless of the manufacturer) should never exceed 4 feet on center, in wind speeds greater than 110 mph, without additional top plate reinforcement. In some cases further reduced spacing may be required. Traditional connections or larger diameter rods and bearing plates may be required at the end of wall openings where the wind uplift is accumulated. Shearwall overturning uplift forces are often much greater than wind uplift. Overturning restraint devices at shearwall ends shall be specified by the Designer separately. The shearwall anchoring device shall be designed to resist roof uplift and overturning where the shearwall ends at a corner or adjacent to window or door openings. Consider Simpson Strong-Tie Anchor Tiedown System (ATS) to restrain shearwall overturning or combined wind uplift and overturning as required (see catalog C-ATS). The Designer shall check rod deflection under the demand loads and reduce the rod spacing or increase rod diameters as necessary. The wind uplift anchors may be used to transfer shear at the sill as well as uplift provided the unity equation is checked as noted in the table. For those applications, it is recommended that a bearing plate and nut be used to restrain the sill plate. Anchor allowable loads listed below are based on a minimum spacing of anchors equal to twice the embedment depth. The loads shall be adjusted for two runs spaced at less than the minimum spacing.

The three terms in the unity equation are due to the three possible directions that exist to generate force on an anchor. The number of terms that must be considered for simultaneous loading is at the sole discretion of the Designer and is dependant on their method of calculating wind forces and the utilization of the anchor within the structural system.

HANGER UPLIFT CONSIDERATIONS


By inverting the proper size and type of Simpson Strong-Tie connectors in a girder, truss or beam connection, additional uplift loads can be obtained by combining the loads as shown below. In a combined installation of an inverted connector with a standard connector, all the component uplift and downloads can be added together (as shown in the example below with HGUS26-2 hangers) to obtain higher load values. Allowable loads shown are based on the lesser of either National Design Specification (NDS) calculations or the results of static load tests. Other hanger and connector options than those shown can be used as specified by the Designer.

Shim shall be independently attached to truss.

SOLUTION: For mislocated embedded truss anchors which are greater than " and less than 1" from the face of the truss, a shim must be provided between the strap and the truss. The shim should be designed by the Truss Engineer to properly transfer the loads to the connector. When anchors are more than 1" from the face of the truss, add new connectors as shown on page 16.
