Truss Clips & Girder Hangers
Truss Clip attaches girders, trusses and rafters to wall plates to provide wind restraint. They are used as allpurpose ties wherever one member crosses another.
Girder Truss Shoe is a joist hanger for supporting mono trusses and girder trusses from timber members. Long leg girder truss shoes are suitable for depths ranging from 100mm to 225mm and a 85mm bearing. They are especially designed for supporting trussed rafters. The hanger includes a base tag to avoid unnecessary rotation.
Multi Truss Girder Hanger is a heavy duty girder to girder hanger, available in four different sizes.
The Truss Clips secure truss rafters to wall plates. The truss clip eliminates the potential damage skew nailing can cause to connector plates, rafters or wall plates by offering a positive fixing on two planes with an assured safe working load. Truss clips are made from galvanised steel EN 10346 DX51D Z275. .
Truss clips are designed to hold trusses in position along the plate. The trusses do not need birdsmouth joints, and the truss clips would prevent the roof from spreading.
All holes should be nailed using 12 nos 30 x 3.75 square twist nails or equivalent.
