MITEK Systems - Truss & Frame

The MiTek Truss System is based on MiTek design software and the GANG-NAIL connector plate, a steel plate with multiple spikes or teeth projecting from one face. The connector plates are pressed into the timber using hydraulic or pneumatic presses. Timber components can be joined together with strength and ease to make trusses and other structural timber components.

The ease of installation and effectiveness as a timber connector make GANG-NAIL connector plates ideal for the prefabrication industry where speed and reliability are paramount. The name MITEK truss has become synonymous with quality prefabricated timber roof trusses.

MiTek New Zealand does not actually manufacture trusses.

MiTek manufactures the steel GANG-NAIL connector plates that are supplied to a select national network of MiTek accredited truss fabricators who manufacture trusses to the MiTek specification.  Each of these companies has been chosen as a MiTek Fabricator for their high standards of management and their professionalism within the building components industry.
