Spline Solution Works Without Hoses Or Equipment
Simpson Strong-Tie’s Steel Spline Solution is an off-the-shelf alternative to plywood splines that will lower installed costs and boost installation efficiency. The product is an all-steel, light diaphragm spline strap (LDSS) designed to replace traditional plywood splines for joining mass timber diaphragm panels. The LDSS spline solution includes a steel spline with embossed fastener holes that help the user connect mass timber panels quickly using collated Strong-Drive WSV screws driven by a PRO300SG2 Quik Drive cordless tool modified with a unique nose clip. The embossed fastener holes increase capacity and help guide Quik Drive installation to increase speed by eliminating the bulky hoses and equipment associated with pneumatic nailers.
