RE: custom steel gussets for timber trusses

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
Any time we use knife plates or gusset plates for our timber framing members, they are custom made by a fabricator.  Other than some heavier duty glulam hangers and such by Simpson, I am not aware of any one who would have "off the shelf" connectors/plates.

I would think it’ll be difficult to find stuff “off-the-shelf” for custom work, especially heavy timber trusses…  Ask the local steel fabricators…

I am looking for a supplier/fabricator of steel gusset plates/connectors for custom heavy timber trusses. I see that Simpson provides this service for custom cut 3ga steel up to 48”x48” max dimensions but I’m checking around to see what is available off the shelf.
