New Zealand International

Part of the New Zealand culture is to have friends and family around for a BBQ and to enjoy the warmer summer nights outside. Creating that perfect outdoor entertaining area that brings traditional indoor living areas outside has become a key selling point for new home builds and renovations.

Simpson Strong-Tie have now launched a new innovative range of Outdoor Accents® decorative hardware – Avant Collection for outdoor structures. This new range extends on the practically and strength of the ornate and traditional Mission range with new clean and simple mat-black lines for a more modern appearance where the eye catching features of the fixings and heavy hex-headed washer and screws become a feature in your outdoor structure.

The SDWS Structural Wood screws with the hex-head washers provide the appearance of a bolt but with the ease of install of a screw. This results in a faster and simpler installation method when compared to commonly used nut and bolt connections requiring pre-drilling.

The new Outdoor Accents® Avant range provides decorative black timber connectors and fasteners that not only enhance the beauty of your outdoor living area with clean lines but also provides flexibility with your designing and custom build.

The range has been tested with loads available for design information and has the extra protection of our ZMAX® galvanized steel with black powder coat finish providing good corrosion protection.
