The 16kN Truss To Top Plate Fixng pack has recently been modified to incorporate a new Type 17 - 14g x 75mm screw. These screws replace the existing 90mm x 3.55 diameter nails and washers.
These new 75mm screws are long enough to be driven through the packer member and penetrate the top plate to provide the desired uplift resistance.
With screw fixings becoming such a popular method of fixing these days, the decision to source the new 14g x 75mm screws was easily made and appreciated by the installer due to the speed of installation and positive drive available from modern power tools.
