I have railroad ties surrounding my fire pit. Will these join the ties so that they wont mkve as much? If not what should i use?

Asked by GG June 11, 2020

Answer

The MP Mending Plates are not load rated; it would be up to the Designer to evaluate the suitability of this connector for the specific application. Also, railroad ties can be highly corrosive. The MP Mending Plates have the standard G90 galvanized finish which provides a low level of corrosion resistance. Thank you!

Can they be used to repair trusses?

Asked by MrK August 22, 2019

Answers

That would probably depend on what is broken with your trus and building codes. I have used them to build trusses but in most places that have building codes that would probably not pass. I have used them to build sliding doors as well which I consider to be a more demanding application due to moving all the time(and potential wind damage) where a truss stays still. Your mileage may vary...

I have used flat head and truss head screws at 3/4" to attach the mending plate. another way is to use another board big enough to cover the affected area and attach it it the same screws but long up to 1-1/4". Using a drill with a Phillips bit will do it and you would avoid pulling out the other side. Go slow.

Why not for truss construction? Do you have a product that can be? Like the MT20 that is used by truss companys?
