Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors, fasteners and building solutions, has launched a comprehensive offering of regulated and quality tested connectors and fasteners to serve the growing demand for CLT construction in our all NEW ‘’Connector & Fasteners for CLT Construction Catalogue’’.
