Simpson Strong-Tie expands Outdoor Accents line

Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced the Avant Collection as the newest addition to its Outdoor Accents line of code-listed decorative wood connectors and fasteners.

The line is designed to provide contractors, homebuilders and DIYers with the essential hardware for incorporating both beauty and tested strength into any outdoor living space.

The Avant Collection offers a new design featuring straight edges and chamfered corners for a clean, contemporary look that complements many architectural styles. Like the Outdoor Accents Mission Collection, this new design also accommodates both nominal and rough lumber, providing additional flexibility for building a wide range of custom outdoor spaces.

Avant Collection additions to the Outdoor Accents line include new angles, joist ties, gable plates, post bases, decorative side plates, and more.

All Outdoor Accents connectors and fasteners are made from exterior-rated galvanized steel with a black powder-coat finish for optimal corrosion protection. The patented design of the hex-head washer and structural screw combination offers the look of a bolted connection with significantly faster and easier installation than through-bolting, and can be used with Outdoor Accents post bases, T and L straps, and angles.

“We’re excited to introduce this new collection to give contractors and builders another great design option to choose from when they’re building beautiful custom outdoor living structures,” said Sam Hensen, Simpson Strong-Tie vice president and general manager for Connectors and Lateral Systems. “Both Outdoor Accents collections make a bold statement, are easy to install, and are tested for superior load strength.”

In addition to clean lines, the products meet stringent building codes for high-wind or seismic conditions and feature ZMAX galvanized steel.
