Features and Benefits: Has better capacities than the timber blocks and alternate brackets; Is easier and quicker to install than timber blocks and alternate brackets; PSC can be installed with collated nails, hand driven nails only for alternate brackets; It is difficult to nail into the corner holes within alternate brackets; It is quicker to fit 2 pieces of PSS than trying to locate alternate brackets into position, especially if the timber is over sized or has swollen with moisture.
Accommodates all timber widths, including double trusses, alternate brackets only work with 35mm timber. Long term performance is not affected should the nails have been over driven. Alternate brackets will not work if the nails have been over driven. Meaning there is a likelihood of a fabricator and/or builder call back.
The Pryda Shear Connector is used in pairs to transfer racking loads from the ceiling diaphragm to non-load bearing internal bracing walls.
These connectors allow vertical movement of the trusses (to release creep deflection) and ensures that the truss camber dissipation is uninhibited by over-driven nails.
