Washer Strap Is For Mass Timber Construction

Simpson Strong-Tie’s MTWS mass timber washer strap is a versatile, off-the-shelf, load-tested option for a variety of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panel-to-panel and panel-to-steel connections in mass timber construction. First introduced in the 1990s, CLT and other mass timber products provide the enhanced rigidity necessary for creating larger and taller wood-framed buildings. The strap is engineered for the high strength and stiffness required by these higher-load applications while using 10 to 20 per cent fewer fasteners, providing productivity and efficiency on the jobsite, and eliminating the need for custom fabrication of steel connector straps.
