The Simpson Strong-Tie Reinforced Angle Bracket which measures 75 x 48 x 65 x 2.50mm (L x W x H x T) is made from galvanised steel. The material is known for its formability and resistance to corrosion. The angles are generally used for connecting timber at 90-degree angles with the reinforced ribs that add on stability in the joint. The typical application includes the fastening of small trusses, cladding plates, cladding uprights, rafter anchors, cantilevers, headers. If the overall structure prevents the rotation of the purlin or the post, the tensile strength is equal to half of the given value for two angle-brackets. The resistance value to consider is equal to half of the one given for two angle-brackets. There are two shank sizes to ensure a stable connection, one is 35mm long annular ring shank nail fastener with a diameter of 4mm and the other is a 50mm long annular ring shank nail fastener with a diameter of 4mm.
