Simpson Strong-Tie has released the H1A next-generation hurricane tie, designed to install with fewer, shorter nails and achieve higher allowable uplift and F2 loads to meet the building safety needs of homes in seismic and high-wind regions of the country.

A code-listed and tested update to the original H1 connector and designed for nominal 2x lumber, the H1A features innovative embossments that add stiffness for improved allowable uplift and lateral loads. In addition to providing strength and versatility, the tie installs quickly and easily with 1-1/2” nails, eliminating the need to use two different nail sizes in the same connector and reducing both the length and overall number of nails required.

It is available in standard G90 galvanization or with ZMAX coating for corrosion resistance.
