Re: Strong-tie

One contractor I worked with suspected/thought that enginneers were paid by Simpson. On the positive side, the increased capacity of the A35 will decrease the number of connectors and nails.

I just received the C-2009 Simpson catalogue. There are a few goodies in there, like HTT4&5 holdowns, but check out page 162: the capacity of an A35 has been increased from 450# to 695#! There are going to be a lot of happy carpenters here if we ever get around to building anything again.

Disclaimer: I do not work for or own stock in Simpson Strong-Tie, despite what some of my contractors like to say (their idea of a joke).
