Important Info & General Notes


Corrosion Information

In January 2004, the pressure treated timber industry voluntarily shifted from using CCA-C to alternative chemical treatments. To determine this impact on timber connectors, Simpson Strong-Tie conducted industry approved tests and found that many of the alternatives were more corrosive than CCA-C. Because this is an important safety issue, we have devoted several pages of our website to the issue of corrosion. We hope you find it informative and helpful in making decisions about this topic.

For Quik Drive® products: We recommend Stainless Steel, and Quik Guard© as materials/coatings that can, in appropriate environmental conditions, be used with the following pressure treated lumber: ACQ-C, ACQ-D, ACQ-D Carbonate, CBA-A, CA-B, SBX, MCQ and CCA.

Software and Web Applications

Solid Wood

Monday, August 14, 2023

Solid Wood is a web-based tool that designs timber connections with nails and screws according to Eurocode 5 (EN 1995-1-1). The software calculates methodically joints of timber to timber, steel to timber or mass timber while helping the user to find the right product for the application.

The software is easy to use and makes it easier to understand and specify the right solutions, based on substrate density, material characteristics, corrosion category and load. The software generates solutions from fasteners that are in stock in New Zealand, and provides a PDF-report that can be used as documentation for the project.

In 4 simple steps, Solid Wood finds a code approved fastening solution which is suitable for the specific project. The specifications can be printed out and used as documentation.

  • Documentation according to Eurocode 5 (EN 1995-1-1)
  • Support for CLT calculations according to ETA-21/0670
  • Faster and easier than calculating by hand
  • Link to our website to easily get more information about the products



Solid Wood software is solely based on European design methodology and product application, and fastener capacities are derived using EN 1995-1-1:2004+A2_2014 (Eurocode 5).  While some guidance is provided to relate required software design inputs to NZ/AU terminology, by using Solid Wood in NZ/AU the user agrees it is entirely their responsibility to satisfy themselves that resulting design outputs are compliant with local NZ/AU building codes, regulations, and design Standards.

Thursday, September 22, 2022

Simpson Strong-Tie® Anchor Designer is the latest anchorage design tool for structural engineers to satisfy the strength design provisions of ACI 318-19/-14 Chapter 17 / ACI 318-11 Appendix D, CAN/ CSA A23.3 Annex D, ETAG 001 Annex C or EOTA TR029 design methodologies. Anchor Designer will quickly and accurately analyze an existing design or suggest anchorage solutions based upon user-defined design elements in cracked and uncracked concrete conditions.

The real-time design is visually represented in a fully-interactive 3D graphic user interface, supports Imperial and Metric-sized Simpson Strong-Tie mechanical and adhesive anchors, and offers cast-in-place solutions. Anchor Designer can calculate single anchor solutions or up to 16 anchors in a single plate. Previous designs from existing Simpson Strong-Tie anchor design software may be uploaded into Anchor Designer, and the detailed output is provided in convenient PDF format.

Additional features include:

  • Customizable anchor pattern
  • Easy-to-use menus.
  • Ability to calculate single anchor model or to calculate multiple anchor models at once.
  • Multi-lingual options include English, German, French, Danish, Spanish and Polish languages.
