Quality - Innovation and Service. That's our Genuine commitment.
Since we released our first joist hanger back in 1956, we have strived to build quality and innovation into everything we make and everything we do. By talking to builders and architects every day, our connectors have constantly evolved with new features to help build better, safer structures. They’ll save you time and give you peace of mind.

Installing Genuine Connectors
Whether you're building an extension, renovating a property or building a new completely new structure, Simpson Strong-Tie connectors are designed to do more than just their job, They're designed to help you do yours.
We constantly think about how to make the installers life easier, adding unique features to our connectors to simplify the job and speed things up.
Many of our joist hangers feature 'speed prongs'. These are teeth built into the hanger which allow you to tap the hanger into place, leaving both hands free to hold the hammer and nails to finish the job.
Crocodile Wall Starter
The C2KS (famously known as the Crocodile) wall starter is the only wall extension profile which features 'snap out' ties (so they don't go missing on site) as well as a universal profile channel so they can be lined up with the new wall quickly and accurately.
Engineered Restraint Straps
Because conventional restraint straps are between 2.5 and 5mm thick, you can't lay a floor without first having to notch out the floor joists. After extensive testing we discovered that the thickness of the steel matters less than the strength of the bend. Realising this, we developed the HES strap. Just 1.5mm thick, it can it over joists without all that notching, however special reinforcements on the bend give it a huge 8kN restraint capacity.
If you're new to using connectors or you just need to check something with an expert, our Technical Support team is on hand to answer your questions and provide some sound installation advice, from making sure you have the most suitable product, to the best ways to go about installing them.
Designing with Genuine Connectors
New building methods and alternative materials are continually emerging. Our design team and UKAS accredited test lab are primed to rapidly deliver new connector solutions. And since we have manufacturing facilities thoughout Europe and North America, there's every chance we already have the next big thing available from the shelf.
