The Peak Performer™ hinge plate offers even greater jobsite efficiency. It folds to match the truss pitch and attaches to both faces of the peak using #10 hanger nails hammered through the pre-punched holes in the plate. The nail pattern is offset, resulting in a strong and secure connection. Installation is made easy because you have no loose parts, no extra trusses to build or handle, and no worries about oversized loads on high-pitched trusses.
MiTek's BEH™ and Peak Performer™ Hinge Plates are fabricated from light gauge metal truss plates stamped from 18 gauge ASTM A653 galvanized steel.Both overall hinge plate dimensions are 2.25" x 8.375". The ends of the BEH™ Hinge plate contain 48 teeth each, while the Peak Performer™ has 48 teeth in one end and five nail holes in the other.
