Multi Grip

Multi use 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.

APPLICATION

NOTES: 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. For 2/Multi Grips the above values can be doubled.
