Cold Formed Steel Connectors

Collection:Cold Formed Steel Connectors

Cold-formed steel connectors from Simpson Strong-Tie are designed especially for use in cold-formed steel construction. Cold-formed steel (CFS) is a process where sheets of steel are shaped to create columns, joists, studs, beams, and other common construction components. Cold-formed steel does not split or shrink and is more resistant to corrosion than traditional lumber components, making it suitable for a wide variety of construction projections and in a wide range of environments as well.

    • SUBH Bridging Connectors - have a compact profile that allows them to be sistered directly against adjacent studs in standard 1-5/8” stud installations.

    • S/DTT2Z - S/LTT Tension Ties are designed for lighter-duty holdown applications with single or back-to-back studs.

    • S/HD - S/HDU Holdowns - provide loads for high-load shearwalls, braced-wall panels, and lateral applications. The thoughtful design helps limit material stretch, resulting in low deflection under load.

    • CFS Hurricane Ties - provide support for trusses or joints in cold-formed steel construction applications. These versatile hurricane ties can be used for general tie purposes, as well as strongback attachments, and even as all-purpose ties.

    • S/JCT – S/HJCT Steel-Joist Connectors - can be used with CFS headers, wood headers, steel I-beams, and masonry walls and are field-skewable up to 45°.


    • MSCB/SCB Framing Connectors can accommodate applications that usually require two parts with just a single side-clip connector.

    • SC/SCW Slide-Clip Connectors are ideal for high-seismic areas and provide an optimal solution for slide-clip bypass framing.


    • FCB Bypass Framing Connectors are rated for tension, compression, shear, and in-plane loads and feature a flexible design which allows for the use of varying screw and anchorage patterns to help achieve different load levels.

    • SFC CFS Utility Clips are a multi-use and low-cost utility clip for light to moderate loading conditions in stud-to-stud and stud-to-structure applications that don’t require long leg lengths.

    • SJC/MSJC Steel-Joist Connectors - are designed for a wide variety of cold-formed steel joist, rafter, and underside of metal-deck applications.


    • SSC/LSSC/MSSC Stud Connectors are suitable for a variety of stud-to-stud and stud-to-structure cold-formed steel construction applications.

    • RCA/RCA-C Rigid Connector Angles are intended as a general-purpose style clip to use in a wide variety of cold-formed steel construction applications.

    • RCKW Rigid Kneewall Connectors are designed to resist overturning moment at the base of exterior kneewalls and parapets as well as interior partial-height walls or overhead ribbon window conditions.

    • S/LS CFS Reinforcing Angles - are skewable from 0° to 135° and are a great option for a wide variety of applications, such as connecting roof rafters to hip rafters at various angles.


    • S/HGAM10KT Gable Truss Brackets are strong and durable hurricane gusset angles used to secure the bottom chord of a gable end truss or other framing members to masonry.

    • S/HTC Heavy Truss Clip gives you a slotted connection from the truss or joist to the top track.


    • Steel Header Hangers - are used to support traditional cold-formed steel box headers, as well as large-flange lay-in headers.


    • SCHA Slide-Clip Connectors - are designed for use in panelized or stick-frame construction to secure cold-formed steel anchors to concrete slabs or steel beams.

    • DSSCB Bypass Framing Connectors - are used in cold-formed steel construction applications to support bypass framing to the edge of a floor slab and is a solution to accommodate building drift.

    • SBR/DBR Spacer Bracers - provide bracing along the length of studs and feature pre-punched slots for faster and more efficient drywall installation.

    • HWDC Head-of-Wall Drift-Clip Connectors -  are used to secure the head of a wall to the bottom of a slab or beam. HWDC connectors allow anchor screws to be installed closer to the bend.

    • SBV/CF - R/DS Construction Connectors  - SBV and CF connectors reinforce the connection between a vertical wall and a horizontal surface. The DS drywall stop eliminates costly blocking at top plate, end walls, and corners.


    • HYS Bypass Hybrid Struts - are the only CFS struts available on the market designed and tested for use as either a side or a rigid clip. This connector is commonly used at the bottom of the steel beam to accommodate large standoff conditions. 


    • PHC Panel Hoist Clips - are designed for easy installation and lifting of wall panels on the jobsite. The PHC-C Covers conceal the track hole of the PHC panel hoist clip with no fastening required.


    • Simpson Strong-Tie Ready products - allow the installer to create curved wall and ceiling framing right on the jobsite. These products create a framing system for even the most challenging curved drywall designs.


    • S/B and S/LBV Joist Hangers - install to structural steel or cold-formed steel members for support of cold-formed steel joists. They can be skewed to a maximum of 45°. Widths for skewable sections are limited to a maximum of 5-1/4".
