Metal Hurricane Clips
Hurricanes are a real threat to much of America. They occur frequently in places like Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Texas. Living in these areas means that the threat of strong winds is a real danger. Hurricanes have been known to tear roofs off houses. This then exposes the occupants inside and structural components to other threats such as rain, hail, and falling debris. Metal hurricane clips are simple pieces of hardware that can help protect your roof from being torn off by the strong winds of a hurricane. They attach your roof to the wall structures of your property. This helps prevent the upward pressure, caused by the wind hitting the side of your roof and pressing upward toward your roof overhang, from tearing off your roof.
Types of Metal Hurricane Clips
Timber Connectors: This type of clip connects beams, wall plates, studs, rafters, and purlins to the property structure.
Rafter Connectors: This type connects rafters to ridge boards.
Truss Anchors: These clips can be used at the end of metal or wood trusses to attach them to the top of the structure on which they are bearing.
