RE: Hurricane Ties and Light Gauge Steel Framing

Simpson is the biggest in the industry, but you can also consider:

They all publish their ICC approvals. Generally you can develop your own connectors, but ICC approvals require testing. Developing your own connectors will require you to jump through a lot of hoops that may not be worth the effort or the perceived savings.

Hello Everybody!

We are designing Light Gauge Steel structures for California. I am confused about using Hurricane ties for and anchors as Architect says I can specify only that are approved in the jurisdiction for the design. Back home here in Canada, we use our custom made clip angles and other sort of tie-downs for which our engineers seal the drawing for the approval from Municipality. Has anybody got an idea on this? Are there some connectors parallel to simpson which we use for wood structures?
