Outdoor Living With Simpson Strong
Part of the Australian culture is to have friends and family around for a BBQ and perhaps a hit of cricket in the back yard. Creating that perfect outdoor entertaining area that brings the inside out has become a key selling point for new home builds and renovations.
Simpson Strong-Tie have now launched a new innovative range of Outdoor Accents® decorative hardware Avant Collection for those outdoor structures combining both elegance and structural strength. Our design motivation came from the increasing popularity of the clean and simple mat-black appearance which provides eye catching features of the fixings and enhance the look the brackets, hex-headed washer and screws.
The SDWS Structural Wood screws with the hex-head washers provide the appearance of a bolt but the ease of install of a screw which results with a faster installation method compared to outdated nuts and bolts requiring pre-drilling.
The new Outdoor Accents® range provides decorative black timber connectors and fasteners that not only enhance the beauty of your outdoor living area with clean lines but also provides flexibility with your designing and custom build.
Our range has been tested to meet building codes and has the extra protection of our ZMAX® galvanized steel with black powder coat providing corrosion protection for the harsh Australian conditions.

New Decorative Hardware Brings Strength And Beauty To Outdoor Living Structures
Outdoor Accents® decorative hardware is a new line of connectors and fasteners from Simpson Strong-Tie that provides both design elegance and structural strength to custom outdoor living structures. This load-rated, patent-pending hardware accommodates 4x and 6x lumber sizes, providing the flexibility installers and Designers need when designing and building custom outdoor structures.
The new mission style connectors, which include post bases, strap ties and angles, are made from galvanized steel with a black powder-coat finish for corrosion protection. The fasteners are all exterior rated and also feature a black powder-coat finish.
A key feature of Outdoor Accents is an innovative hex-head washer that is used with a structural wood screw to offer the look of a bolted connection with the installation ease of a screw. The patent-pending design of the washer makes for an easier and significantly faster installation compared to through-bolting. It is code listed and is designed exclusively to help fasten Outdoor Accents post bases, T and L straps, and angles.
We are excited to offer our customers such an attractive hardware line that combines easy installation with load strength, said Sam Hensen, vice president and general manager for Connectors and Lateral Systems.
