MiTek continues to develop new products that are designed to increase sales and add value to your product mix. The latest is a connector that will dramatically increase the speed of installing blocking in roofs and walls.


Truss manufacturers, framers, builders and architects will appreciate MiTeknology more than ever when they experience the ease and speed of MiTek’s newest aid to installing bird blocking, wall blocking, I-joist blocking, and fire blocking.  SPEEDBLOKä is the name and saving time and money is the game.  With the introduction of the revolutionary “speed clip”ä which is scheduled to hit the construction industry by mid-October 2008 the SpeedBlok is the next logical progression.

SPEEDBLOK'sä will be available in all common sizes and can be applied to any length of framing material to be used in heading of stairways, crawl holes, and fireplace hearths.   This type of preassembled blocking will be especially helpful to the lone worker, as the ends of framing members will no longer be subject to dropping to the ground. The clips unique design, where the right angle teeth lay at the top of framing members, keeps the framing member from dropping to the ground


 In a recent conversation with a framer of forty-five years from the Pacific Northwest, he emphatically expressed his dislike of installing blocking and was confident any carpenter would agree with his assessment, that the most tedious, time consuming framing task is installing blocks, and now it can be done WITHOUT NAILS.  Smiling, he said, “Bring it on.”
