More and more building codes are requiring installation of reinforcing plates at certain types of connections. The primary objective of these code requirements is to transfer vertical loads to the foundation through a continuous path. The connector plates take a connection that depends largely upon the ability of nails to resist pull out from an end-grain timber and redirect the loads to nails working in shear instead of tension. The affect upon construction performance in severe weather is amazing. Reports summarizing the damage done by recent hurricanes in the south reveal that structures built since adoption of these standards sustained substantially less damage than those built without Continuous Load Path techniques. These multi-function 316 stainless steel framing connectors are perfect for use in applications requiring exposure to the elements, or where the pressure treated building materials will be used. The brackets have two innovative legs that may be bent at right angles to provide a wide variety of connection options, several of which are pictured below. In general, the connector has almost limitless uses with the basic rule being, fill all the holes with #10d x 1-1/2"" stainless steel joist nails, and pair the hangers at each joint where possible. Includes (12) #10d x 1-1/2"" 316 stainless joist nails.

1. Allowable loads are for one anchor. When anchors are installed on each side of the joist, the minimum joist thickness is 3"".
2. Roof loads are 125% of floor loads unless limited by other criteria.
3. Some illustrations show connections that could cause cross grain tension or bending of the wood during loading if not reinforced sufficiently. In this case, mechanical reinforcement should be considered.
