The Burmon ICF Connector System

The Burmon ICF Connector System utilizes a revolutionary double threaded cylinder bolt assembly that connects and anchors wood ledger brackets, wood and steel ledgers, joist hangers, I- joists, beams and trusses to insulated concrete forms (ICF) walls.

The cylinder bolt assembly is engineered with high capacity sheer points, which more efficiently absorbs the energy of the unsupported load transfer span, between the polystyrene inner and outer ICF wall. The embedded legs of the cylinder tube have openings to receive concrete and rebar (optional) and the high capacity bolts connect directly to the concrete within the ICF wall, enhancing strength, stiffness of connection, function and durability.

High Capacity High Performance ROOF TRUSS CONNECTORS

ICF Hurricane Anchor
Connection to Sill Plate

Solution

This ICF Home loses its roof because just a few nails was holding the roof on the ICF sill plate.

Problem

During high wind events, roofs are just as susceptible of blowing off an ICF home as they are a wood frame home.

Burmon answered the call of leading ICF Manufacturers and designed a roof truss tie down system that withstands high uplift wind forces.

The Burmon roof truss tie down system is easy to install and is cost competitive.

ICF Hurricane Anchor
Connection to Concrete

Solution

The sill plate was ripped from the top of the walls along with the trusses and roof.

A Problem Worth Solving

20+ Year Old Roof Connectors - a Dying Technology

Risky roof connections are more than a problem worth solving – they are a business opportunity.

Some examples of popular roof connection options used today in North America to connect roof trusses/rafters to walls:

  1. Toe Nailing is the practice of using a few nails to fix the truss/rafter to the wall. When high winds strike, roofs are at a high risk of blowing off, causing major property damage and possible injury to people.
  1. The standard Hurricane Clip is limited to resisting winds up to 60 MPH. In many cases, the edge of the wooden top plates are split or rotten, which means nails which are designed to hold the connector together don’t penetrate the wood.
  1. The standard Hurricane Tie has a higher uplift capacity than a Hurricane clip but requires 19 nails to fix it to the wall and truss. This makes this connector costly and labour intensive to install. The design of this connector also means the connector sits proud on the face of the wall creating an unsightly sheeting bump when installing drywall.

The results of risky roof connections speak for themselves:


What Our Customers Say:

“Quick and easy to install, a real time saver. I think it's a no-brainer.”

Scott Ruud, Form Systems Inc
Wichita, Kansas, USA

“One of the advantages of the Burmon Roof Truss Anchor is that we can position it on the sill plate to achieve a direct tension line with the truss, the plate and the anchor bolts embedded into the concrete. Other anchors require they be attached at the edge of the plate which... results in an offset tension line that can cause the plate to roll or even split. Also, the Burmon Anchor provides greater stability for accommodating heel trusses.”

David Wester, WesterBuilt, Alberta, Canada
Logix Large Residential Home Award Winner 2018

“One of the biggest advantages of your product, is the fact it eliminates the cladding or sheeting bump on the upper plate line. This can look quite unsightly when the eave line is raking and the cladding is extending to the plate line.”

Nick, Gold Coast Master Builder

“I like the fact that the brackets hold the trusses up by themselves, bracing the trusses is too easy. We also save time with not having to skew nail and there is no going back to put on grips or straps later.”

Ash, Lead Carpenter, Sanctuary 28

“This system is saving our apprentice two days work, we require the straps to be hand nailed as well as checked in, hurricane straps are the thing of the past.”

Luke, Owner, Hammerhead Building, Multiple HIA award winning builder.

“Initially, when I saw the Bracket, my first thought was, it is going to make it hard to move the trusses on the top plate, but the boys from Burmon came down and spent the day with us and showed how easy and efficient this system is. There was no issue about moving trusses around with the brackets already installed on the ribbon plate. This system is a real time saver and safer now that I don’t have to drag coil gun hoses around.”
