The MiTek BearingPlate has been developed to improve the crushing resistance of wall plates under heavily loaded trusses. The positioning of a MiTek ConnectorPlate onto the bottom chord of the truss above the BearingPlate as shown in these specifications, will also improve the crushing resistance of the bottom chord to match the wall plate.

Advantages

  • BearingPlates improve the crushing resistance of wall plates.

  • Simple to install and may be fitted before or after truss is positioned. Only 4 nails are required for fixing.

  • One size may be used for either 70mm or 90mm wall framing, and with either single or double trusses.
