Hinge Plates with higher engineering values. Replace piggyback or cap trusses with more reliability built in.
MiTek’s new MTH18 is a full size plate with over 50% more engineering values in Shear and Compression categories and over 10% increase in tension. Hinge plates are the perfect solution for both the component manufacturer and the framer.
- Higher design values in the same dimension plate as the BEH18 hinge.
- Creates a strong, secure connection.
- Replaces the long running and successful BEH18 plate for hinge trusses.
- 18 gauge ASTMA653 galvanized steel.
- Available as a half and half hinge – teeh on one side, nail holes on the other – MTHNH18.
- MTH18 & MTHNH18 plates are in MiTek design software.
- The MTH18 replaces the BEH18 which is discontinued.
- Installation is made easy because you have no loose parts, no extra trusses to build or handle, and no worries about oversized loads on high-pitched trusses.
