KNUCKLE NAILPLATE 134 X 254MM
Hammer applied nailplates for many joint types
Pryda Knuckle Nailplates are galvanised steel connectors with in-built, bent-up “knuckle” nails. These plates are ideal for many structural and non-structural timber jointing and timber protection uses.
Among the many uses of Knuckle Nailplates, the most common are jointing of wall frames together on-site, on-site splicing of timber beams, reinforcement of corners of boxes and bins, and reinforcement of bolted joints (eg Cable Truss)
Generally, Knuckle Nailplates will:
- Provide a strong, economical and easy-to-use means of jointing timber together.
- Protect timber from damage as they resist splitting due to drying of the timber, nailing near ends or other causes eg Bin Straps.
- Also reduce timber damage by resisting the effects of impact loads such as from fork lift tyne strikes.
- Distribute concentrated loads over a wider area, eg they increase the strength of bolted joints.
