Construction connector manufacturer Simpson Strong-Tie has announced the release of its latest catalogue and there’s much more to it than a new cover.
Seen by the industry as the go to resource to help builder better, stronger structures, the 2014 edition of “Connectors for Timber and Masonry Construction” includes all of the familiar joist hangers, restraint straps, timber connectors, masonry ties and plasterers bead which they are best known for.
