connectors are designed to enable structures to resist
the movement, stress, and loading that results from impact events such as
earthquakes and high velocity winds. Other Simpson Strong-Tie products are
designed to the load capacities and uses listed in this catalog. Properly-installed
Simpson Strong-Tie products will perform in accordance with the specifications
set forth in the applicable Simpson Strong-Tie catalog. Additional performance
limitations for specific products may be listed on the applicable catalog pages.
Due to the particular characteristics of potential impact events, the specific
design and location of the structure, the building materials used, the quality
of construction, and the condition of the soils involved, damage may
nonetheless result to a structure and its contents even if the loads resulting
from the impact event do not exceed Simpson Strong-Tie catalog specifica-
tions and Simpson Strong-Tie connectors are properly installed in accordance
with applicable building codes.
All warranty obligations of Simpson Strong-Tie Company Inc. shall be
limited, at the discretion of Simpson Strong-Tie Company Inc., to repair or
replacement of the defective part. These remedies shall constitute Simpson

under this warranty. In no event will Simpson Strong-Tie Company Inc.
be responsible for incidental, consequential, or special loss or damage,
however caused.

implied, including warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular
