Key products launching under the Simpson Strong-Tie Cross-Laminated Timber collection include the following:
The AB255SSH structural angle bracket, designed for installing CLT elements on wood using the SSH structural screws. Offering high versatility and superior performance in both horizontal and vertical directions.
The HTT hold down range, used in pairs or individually, with the ‘tongue enveloping’ design at the bottom significantly increasing the load bearing capacities.
