Uni Ties are strong and economical connectors for timber connections and tie down.
These pre-punched and formed galvanised steel timber connectors are:
Joining timber at right angles
For tie down to double top plates
|Joint Group||Tie down capacity (kN) per Uni Tie
Dead Load + Wind Load
NOTE: The capacities are derived from testing in accordance with 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/Uni Ties the table values can be doubled.
4/gun-nails into each truss and 2/nails into each top plate (4/nails in total to top plates or beams)
Note: All nails need to be 32mm long x 2.5Ø hardened screw shank nails and comply to AS2334-1980 or ASTM F1667-15.
Install the Uni Ties as shown to achieve twice the load in the Limit State Design Load Table.
Nailing into both sides of a single 35mm truss is not recommended as it may cause the timber to split.
