Introducing the Simpson Strong-Tie Outdoor Accents® range of decorative hardware.  

Add beauty and strength to your custom outdoor living structures with the new range of Simpson Strong-Tie Outdoor Accents® decorative hardware and fasteners. The mission-style decorative connectors are easily installed with the versatile black SDWS Timber Screw or SD Connector Screws. The SDWS Timber Screw with its patented SawTooth point allows for faster installation, less torque and no pre-drilling and is used in conjunction with the hex-head washers for the larger connectors.  Whereas the smaller angle brackets are installed with our black SD Connector Screws.  The clever design gives the look of a bolt but with the ease of installation of a screw. The Outdoor Accents® hex-head washer provides the decorative appearance of a bolted connection. Its patent-pending design makes for an easier and significantly faster installation compared to through-bolting. This washer and screw combination is designed specifically to fasten Outdoor Accents post bases, T and L straps, deck joist tie and large angles (engineering data is available for Outdoor Accents® connector range).

The Outdoor Accents connectors are made with Simpson Strong-Tie Z550 ZMAX® galvanised steel and have a black powder-coat finish which provides corrosion protection making it suitable for exterior use. This hardware accommodates both 90mm and 140mm timber sizes, providing the flexibility you need when designing and building custom outdoor structures.
