H8 Hurricane Tie
Simpson Strong-Tie hurricane ties provide a positive connection between the truss/rafter and the wall of the structure to resist wind and seismic forces.
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
Hurricane ties can be installed with flanges facing inward or outward.
H2.5T, H3 and H6 ties are shipped in equal quantities of right and left versions (right versions shown).
Hurricane ties do not replace solid blocking.
When installing ties on plated trusses (on the side opposite the truss plate), do not fasten through the truss plate from behind. This can force the truss plate off of the truss and compromise truss performance.
H10A optional nailing to connect shear blocking: use 0.131" x 2 1/2" nails. Slots allow maximum field bending up to a pitch of 6:12; use H10A sloped loads for field-bent installation.
