To support the growing use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) in the UK and Europe, leading connector manufacturer Simpson Strong-Tie has released an updated version of its ‘Connectors for CLT’ catalogue.

Featuring a host of new products including heavy duty angle brackets, hold-down connectors and structural screws, this edition represents a complete set of solutions for the assembly of CLT buildings, as well as steel and chemical mortar products designed specifically to connect the entire structure to concrete.

Sales Director, Jon Head explains: “We have drawn together a huge variety of products from across our European operations to produce a comprehensive range of performance tested connectors and fasteners to enable CLT constructions from floor to ceiling – the CLT designer need look nowhere else”.

To further support the design and construction of CLT structures, Simpson Strong-Tie also has a team of engineers based at its manufacturing plant in Tamworth, offering technical support and assistance.
