Simpson Strong-Tie has announced the launch of the patent-pending CSHP coiled strap. It is designed with a raised embossment for installations, resulting in reduced cost and improved efficiency for builders and contractors.
The CSHP can be cut to length at the jobsite for a range of floor-to-floor, drag strut, and other tension load transfer and positive-tie strapping applications. The incorporation of a raised embossment helps with strap installation while using standard pneumatic nailers, while providing increased rigidity and strength for designers and specifiers in need of higher allowable loads. Because CSHP achieves higher load values, contractors can use shorter straps with fewer nails, driving down labor and material costs.
The CSHP high-performance coiled strap is available in 1 3/8-inch wide straps packaged in 75-foot coils and features a colored dot facing out when installed correctly to help contractors, eningeers and building inspectors identify proper installation from close range and longer distances. Builders and designers seeking an ideal coiled strap product can use the Simpson Strong-Tie Coiled Strap Calculator web app to determine the best strap solution and length based on specific applications.
