Simpson Strong-Tie

Simpson Strong-Tie’s wood Strong-Wall was the company’s first entry into the market.

The steel Strong-Wall offers greater capacity in a narrower form, with simpler base attachments.

The Strong-Wall SB Shear wall is made of laminated strand lumber (LSL) and is field-trimmable.

Simpson Strong-Tie’s Ordinary Moment Frame holds the frame stiff in a windstorm. In an earthquake, the steel column and frame bend to absorb the quake’s energy, saving the building, but ruining the moment frame. Simpson’s new Special Moment Frame (not shown) has a “fusible” connection between the columns and beam that is designed to yield in an earthquake, preserving the main members of the frame.
