The versatile A34 and A35 Reinforced Angle Brackets provide a way to make a straight angle of 90° connection. The A35 Angle Bracket’s exclusive bending slot allows instant, accurate field bends for two and three-way ties. Balanced, completely reversible design permits the A35 to secure a great variety of connections.

Please check Corrosion Information if it is suitable for your application.

  1. Design Capacity is the lesser of (1) the Characteristic Capacity multiplied by the Australian Capacity Factor, or the NZ Strength Reduction Factor (φ), and applicable the k modification factors following AS 1720.1 and NZS 3603 and (2) the Serviceability Capacity which is the load at 3.2mm joint slip. Design Capacity is the minimum of test data and structural joint calculation.
  2. For Australia, the Capacity Factor (φ) is 0.85 for nails and screws for structural joints in a Category 1 application. Reduce tabulated values where other Category applications govern. For NZ, the Strength Reduction Factor (φ) is 0.80 for nails in lateral loading.
  3. Duration of Load Factor (k1) is as shown. Reduce Duration of Load Factor where applicable. Capacities may not be increased.
  4. Timber species for joint design is seasoned Radiata Pine, which is Australia Joint Group JD4 per AS 1720.1 Table H2.4 and New Zealand Joint Group J5 per NZS 3603 Table 4.1.
  5. Design capacities are for one part. When parts are installed on each side of the joist, the minimum joist beadth is 75mm.
  6. Some illustrations show connections that could cause cross–grain tension or bending of the timber during loading if not reinforced sufficiently. In this case, mechanical reinforcement should be considered.
  7. Connectors are required on both sides to achieve F2 load in both directions.
  8. For simultaneous loads in more than one direction, the connector must be evaluated using the Unity Equation. See General Note 'e' on page 15.

E5_Reinforced Angle Bracket

E5 Reinforced Angle Bracket is suitable for structural applications in framing and timber-frame houses for general connecting of timber at 90° angles. Typical applications include fixing trusses, studs, purlins, beams and posts.

GA1

To provide more consistent, straight corners, Simpson Strong-Tie offers a wide variety of angles in various sizes and thicknesses to handle light-duty jobs or projects where a structural connection is needed.

The A21 and A23 Reinforced Angle Brackets provide a way to make a straight angle of 90° connection. The A21, A23 L shape angles are load rated, providing the correct thickness and number of fasteners.
