MITEK GANGLAM - Lintels, Beams, Joists & Rafters

Title
Updated: 08/02/2013

MITEK GANGLAM is formed by building up large beam sections from smaller components by edge joining standard section sizes together with GANG-NAIL connector plates. These shear plates are normally pressed onto one face with nominal stitch plates on the other face. In some cases, the plates can be totally concealed between the timber layers.

The GANGLAM system uses readily available materials and is quick to fabricate. This enables the product to be supplied with minimal delay and at minimal cost.

Each beam is custom-made to measure, and can be cambered to suit any application. Extra deep or long multi-span beams can be detailed to requirements.

GANGLAM is available through MiTek accredited fabricators.
