Simpson Strong-Tie will feature new and innovative fasteners, tools and technology solutions during the International Builders’ Show on Feb. 27–29 in Las Vegas. In addition, the booth will include a full demo station for attendees to experience and test products in a hands-on environment.

Fasteners and Tools

Simpson Strong-Tie will highlight several of its latest products that directly contribute to installation productivity, making contractors’ jobs easier and faster. These include:

  • Timber Drive: The Timber Drive structural screw fastening system offers fast, stand-up driving of large structural screws, an alternative to the traditional method of working on hands and knees. The award-winning tool is ideal for heavy-duty jobs that require repetitive fastening, such as decks, docks, boardwalks, piers and flooring.
  • Quik Drive: Eliminating the need for installing individual screws or other complicated fastening options, Quik Drive stand-up auto-feed screw driving systems are the fastest on the market while offering a more ergonomic option for repetitive tasks.
  • Quik Stik: Designed for overhead, stand-up fastening, Quik Stick eliminates the need for ladders when fastening rafter and truss connections, and it’s designed for use inside the building structure.
  • Strong-Drive SDPW Deflector Screw: Value engineered for strength and safety, this premium structural fastening solution connects non-load-bearing walls to trusses and joists. Offset driver bits and a driver extension maximize installation speed and safety while minimizing installed cost.

Building Technology

Simpson Strong-Tie’s versatile array of technology solutions help ensure efficiency and accuracy while reducing waste — bringing more money to builders’ and dealers’ bottom lines. During the show, attendees can demo several software platforms:

  • LotSpec: Attendees can see live demos of this option management infrastructure, which allows for the efficient support of many structural options using intuitive rules, smart tools and flexible workflows for the Autodesk Revit or Autodesk AutoCAD Architecture platform. LotSpec automates the creation of lot-specific documentation, provides tools and workflows for master bid set documentation and much more.
  • Outdoor living software: Attendees can also see augmented reality demos of Simpson Strong-Tie’s suite of outdoor living software, which helps pros and DIYers create beautiful, safe spaces to gather, relax and entertain. Offerings include Deck Planner Software, Pergola Planner Software and Fence Planner Software.
  • Pipeline LBM: A versatile, cloud-based material management and estimating software, Pipeline LBM helps dealers transform takeoff quantities into real-world data to streamline business and increase accuracy.

Attendees and media can see and demo these products and meet with Simpson Strong-Tie experts at Booth C2130 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. For more information, visit
