Product information

Product name

AS-18-HS Truss Plate

Product description

The product is manufactured from an 18-gauge steel sheet that meets the minimum strength and yield requirements of ASTM A 653/A 653-M, “Standard Specification for Steel Sheet, Zinc-Coated (Galvanized) or Zinc-Iron Alloy-Coated (Galvannealed) by the Hot-Dip Process” Grade HSLA I410 steel, and galvanized with G90 zinc coating as per ASTM A 924/A 924M, “Standard Specification for General Requirements for Steel Sheet, Metallic-Coated by the Hot-Dip Process.” The product has an uncoated nominal thickness of 1.184 mm and is stamped with 0.0124 teeth per square mm. The teeth are approximately 9.5 mm in length.
