Metricon Homes, one of Melbourne’s home builders, have improved on-site safety and sped up truss erection time with MiTek Australia’s TrussSpacers. TrussSpacers accurately and effortlessly position and temporarily hold trusses in place during construction (as required by Australian Standard AS4440-2004, the code for ‘Installation of nail plated timber trusses’).
TrussSpacers from MiTek Australia can be fixed to trusses prior to lifting. They sit flush with the truss chord and are then rotated 90 degrees to be fixed to the adjoining, previously braced truss. TrussSpacers come in two standard sizes: 600mm and 900mm.
