Australia International

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the appearance of a bolt but the ease of install of a screw which results with a faster installation method compared to outdated nuts and bolts requiring pre-drilling.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.
