Universal connecting ancillary used to simplify structural joining in timber roof, wall, ceiling and floor framing
Pre-punched and formed galvanised steel timber connectors ideal for:
Tying down trusses for structures located in an area of relatively low wind loading.
Suitable for connecting studs to wall plates, timber braces to roof trusses or for face fixing beams.
Joining timber components rapidly and efficiently.
Jack fly overs to truncated truss
Ceiling joist to hanging beam
Studs to bottom plates
Truss to top plate
|Joint Group||Tie down capacity (kN) per Multi Grip|
Dead Load + Wind Load
NOTE: The capacities are derived from AS1720-2010 and are for uplift in houses where failure is unlikely to affect an area greater than 25m2. For primary elements in structures other than houses or elements in a house for which failure would be greater than 25m2 these capacities must be multiplied by 0.94. For primary joints in essential services or post disaster buildings multiply by 0.88. The capacities are for structural joints for houses for which failure would be unlikely to affect a plan area greater than 25m2.
For 2/Universal Grips the table values can be doubled.
