New Heavy Hip-Ridge Connectors

heavy-hip-ridge-connectorsSimpson Strong-Tie, the industry leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, now offers several new sizes of its HHRC heavy hip-ridge connectors to accommodate additional hip and ridge beam combinations.

Hip-ridge connectors are field-slopeable connectors that attach hip beams to the end of ridge beams. The new 12-gauge HHRC can be sloped downward to a maximum of 35° for hips that accommodate a 45° roof slope. Both the new and existing hip-ridge connectors can be used with structural composite lumber, glulam and solid sawn lumber.

The latest HHRC models offer great strength and design flexibility. When installed with Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SD10 Connector screws (provided), the heavy HHRCs provide higher allowable loads than HRCs that are installed with nails. An open-back ridge connection allows elevation adjustment, and a field-adjustable hip slope facilitates easier installation.
