H3 Hurricane Tie Framing Connectors - 316 Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel H3 Rafter & Hurricane Ties

316 Stainless Steel Framing Connectors for Rafters, Trusses, and Joists

  • H3 Hurricane Ties are installed across two different pieces of wood: the top plate or wall plate and a rafter
  • H3 ties are installed by connecting the two pieces of lumber, securing them together
  • 316 Stainless Steel: ideal for applications in severe, harsh, or marine/saltwater environments
  • Install 316 hurricane ties with only 316 stainless steel joist nails to maintain the manufacturer's warranty

An H3 Hurricane Tie is used for deck or roof framing to secure rafters, trusses, or joists to the wood framework. This is done to resist uplift and lateral forces, such as those that come from a hurricane or severe storm.

NOTE: Depending on pitch, birds-mouth notching may be required with some models to enable installers to fill all nail holes.

Caution: Do not install Hurricane ties into both sides of a given truss, rafter, or joist. Doing so may cause damages in the wood and risks collision of the nails. Instead, install them diagonally across from each other.
