H2 Hurricane Tie Framing Connectors - 316 Stainless Steel

316 Stainless Steel H2 Hurricane Ties

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


H2 Hurricane Ties, also known as rafter or truss ties, are 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.

  • H2 Hurricane Ties are installed on three different pieces of wood: a vertical post, the perpendicular top plate or wall plate, and a rafter
  • H2 ties are installed across all three 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

Please 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.
