DO NOT over tighten the screws or use power drills that are too powerful for the the job as this may damage the timber, screws and or bracket.
- The Easy Fix Girder Bracket is only provided with a structural adequacy certificate when used with a Green Tip #12 Screw.
- TrusSourceTM provides diagrams and details of the Girder Bracket type and positioning.
- For Hardwood bottom chords pre-drilling holes is required.
Fix 8/35mm Green Tip #12 (4 per wing) to the girder truss.
Double Truss - Use 65mm Green Tip #12 screw to double 35/45mm girders.
Triple Truss Use 65mm Green Tip #12 as above and 2/100mm Black Tip #14 screws each side of the bracket
Fix 8/35mm Green Tip #12 screws (4 per side)to the supported truss to ensure that the uplift and anti rotation features of of the Girder Bracket are maintained.
Note: The uplift in capacities are derived from AS1720-2010and are for 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 multiple by 0.88.
