Simpson Strong-Tie introduces high-capacity, load-rated concealed beam hanger for mass timber construction

Simpson Strong-Tie, the maker of engineered structural connectors and building solutions, has introduced the Simpson Strong-Tie® HSKP™ heavy seated knife plate, a high-capacity, welded concealed beam hanger for mass timber structures designed to meet heavy loads while providing a hidden-connector, wood-only design aesthetic.

Engineered specifically to meet some of the heaviest mass timber beam loads, the HSKP is a code-listed, easy-to-install connector that can accommodate larger mass timber beams while still providing a strong, secure wood-to-wood or wood-to-steel connection.

Installed in the factory with Strong-Drive® SDCF Timber-CF structural screws, the HSKP provides valuable time savings on the jobsite, and offers generous fit-up tolerance for easy beam placement. Strong and reliable, the HSKP is code listed for high-capacity loads up to 32 kips, and is ideal for a range of heavy beam applications where loads range from 20 to 32 kips.
