Product information

Product name

MII 16

Product description

“MII 16” truss plate is manufactured from 16 gauge steel sheet that meets the minimum strength and yield requirements of ASTM A653, SS Grade 40 SQ275 and is galvanized with G90 zinc coating per ASTM A924/A924M. “MII 16” truss plate has an uncoated nominal thickness of 1.515 mm and is stamped with 0.0074 teeth per square mm. The teeth are approximately 9.5 mm in length.
