DSC5R-SDS3 Drag Strut Connector
DSC5R-SDS3 Drag Strut Connector

The DSC drag-strut connector transfers the diaphragm shear forces from the girder truss or beam to the shearwalls. The DSC5 has been designed to optimize fastener location, resulting in a connector that outperforms the DSC4 with fewer fasteners. The DSC2 is a smaller, lighter version that installs with fewer screws.

Key Features:

The DSC5 requires 40% fewer fasteners than our previous DSC4, and gets 12% higher loads

Left-hand and right-hand versions available

DSC connectors install with 1/4" x 3" Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (provided)

Material:

DSC2 7 gauge; DSC5 3 gauge

Finish:

DSC2 galvanized; DSC5 Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint
