Steel Gusset Plates for Heavy Timber Construction
Steel plates give a timber frame a look reminiscent of old school factories and mill buildings. They also support a tremendous amount of structural load, allowing heavy timber to span great distances. IN the photo above, the steel was painted black and held to the timber with 3/4" and 1" bolts. All of our gusset plate connections are custom designed and engineered to fit the individual requirements of our projects.
