For more than 50 years, Simpson Strong-Tie has focused on creating structural products that help people build safer and stronger homes and buildings. Considered a leader in structural systems research, testing and innovation, Simpson Strong-Tie is one of the largest suppliers of structural building products in the world.
Its product lines include structural connectors such as hurricane ties and joist hangers, shearwall panels to reinforce a home's walls, and anchor and fastening systems - all of these products work together, especially during a natural disaster to support and strengthen the frame of a home.
Although most homeowners never see our products because they are hidden inside your walls, they play an important role in making sure a house stays together, especially during a natural disaster like a hurricane.
Simpson Strong-Tie is excited to be a sponsor of StormStruckTM as it will be an interactive and educational experience for families to learn how high winds and hurricanes affect homes and the ways they can protect their own homes. Most homeowners don't really think about the structural integrity of their homes until after a natural disaster has occurred and caused damage. It's important for homeowners to know that not all homes are built to resist major windstorms, so it's up to them to make sure their homes are built with Simpson Strong-Tie connectors and other high-wind resistant products.
