THE REVOLUTIONARY ROOF TRUSS TIE-DOWN SOLUTION

Product code: BHBDP

 

Burmon Hurricane Anchor (U.S. Patent Application No. 14/908.536A) is specifically designed to tie down roof trusses to wall frames for US Building Systems and is fully certified and tested for use in accordance with the 2012 International Residential Code (IRC) and 2012 International Building Code.

The revolutionary Burmon design enables the anchor to be securely fixed directly to the top plate. Using a cordless impact driver, simply attach the bracket to the top plate using Burmon panhead screws. The truss is then placed inside the bracket and fixed using Burmon roofing screws. This finishes the tie down of the trusses eliminating the hassle of going back later to nail off connectors. The Hurricane Anchor is faster and easier to install than ordinary conventional connectors whilst delivering a stronger tie down over the whole roof.

  • Code Compliant - 2012 International Residential Code (IRC) & 2012 International Building Code
  • Designed and engineered to resist 96% of all global high wind events
  • Anchors can be fixed to top plate whilst on the ground first, making it safer and faster when working at heights
  • No toe nailing required
  • No hand nailing required
  • Stronger, faster connection
  • Anchors hold trusses in position making bracing easier and safer
