HPTZ Hawaii Hurricane Tie
The HPT hurricane tie provides a key rafter-to-wall connection for retrofit applications located in Hawaii.
The HPT is specially designed and tested for single-wall homes and meets Hawaii state requirements for uplift resistance. The unique design of the HPT connects the wall to the rafter, avoiding interference from the blocking. The strengthened transition area of the HPT helps the structure resist high wind and allows the transfer of forces from the roof to the wall to help prevent damage. For applications where the blocking does not interfere, the H3Z is the recommended solution. The H3Z also meets Hawaii state requirements for uplift resistance. H3SS is stainless steel for maximum corrosion resistance.
Designed to meet the Hawaii Wind Resistive Devices (WRD) required minimum of 400 lbs. of allowable uplift capacity per the state of Hawaii’s loss mitigation program.
Installs easily with Simpson Strong-Tie® SD screws (one part per connection) OR with 10d x 1 1/2" nails (two parts per connection). Either HPT connection requires an additional 1/4" x 1 1/2" Simpson Strong-Tie Strong Drive screw (SDS) at the trim board.
