Especially in commercial buildings for production, warehousing or supermarkets MiTek connector plate trusses are providing the most efficient solution.
Light weight, large span and quick installation are the main advantages of using connector plate timber trusses.
Other building materials like steel, concrete or glue lam are more expensive concerning the raw material.
Steel, concrete or glue lam are not as light weight as timber trusses are, which results higher bearing loads, requiring a tougher, even more expensive base structure.
Steel, concrete or glue lams are more labor intensive to install than connector plate timber trusses. All the heavy cranes, concrete pumps, formwork and large amount of workers on site is NOT needed for installing connector plate timber trusses.
MiTek's connector plate trusses are the most competitive solution for commercial buildings.
