Simpson Strong-Tie unveils new concealed beam hanger for heavy mass timber construction

Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced the Simpson Strong-Tie® HSKP™ heavy seated knife plate, a concealed beam hanger designed for robust mass timber structures. The HSKP supports substantial loads while maintaining a concealed-connector, wood-focused design.


Engineered to meet the demands of heavy mass timber beam loads, the HSKP is an easy-to-install, code-listed connector capable of accommodating larger mass timber beams while ensuring a secure wood-to-wood or wood-to-steel connection. It comes factory-installed with Strong-Drive® SDCF Timber-CF structural screws, saving valuable time on-site and offering a generous fit-up tolerance for simple beam placement. Code-listed for high-capacity loads of up to 32 kips, the HSKP suits a range of heavy beam applications with loads ranging from 20 to 32 kips.


“We’re excited to expand the range of our popular concealed beam hangers for mass timber,” said Thom Murphy, senior product manager at Simpson Strong-Tie. “Along with our other structural solutions for mass timber, the HSKP will provide a heavy-duty solution to designers and contractors working on high-load mass timber projects, and delivers additional versatility to help build safer, stronger buildings, faster.”
