Globally the construction industry is looking hard at where new fastener technology can replace traditional connectors to make the structures they are used in safer and stronger, and increase the productivity of the builder.

These dual benefits are clearly evident in Simpson Strong-Ties SDWC Truss Screw. Used in stud to top and bottom plate connections as well as truss/rafter to top plate connections, these fully threaded screws spread the load over the full length of the connection rather than relying on the head to provide clamp force. They can replace wire dog, strap and/or traditional L type connectors with much faster install time and equivalent or greater load performance.

See our load data to check how this screw can work for you and the structure you are building.
