Who else (besides simpson) makes strap ties ?


I am in the market for thick-gauge strap ties, like these:


http://www.strongtie.com/products/apg/specialty.html


But simpson doesn't have exactly what I am looking for (for instance, L and T straps that are 4-5" wide, instead of 2.5" wide like all of theirs are).

Who else is a non custom manufacturer of these ? I know I can have these custom made, but I'd like to try to buy them off the shelf ...

Thanks.

Every single one of those are simpson parts, or are literally on the simpson website.

If you search for "steel gusset plate" you do find some things like the simpson ones, but they are all custom manufactured (or they are actually gusset plates for steel beams/bridges/etc.)

I guess one conclusion is that simpson *really is* the only one that makes thick gauge strap ties / gusset plates off the shelf ? I find that hard to believe...
