Hidden Steel

Hidden SteelHidden Steel Connections

When hidden steel connections are used there is usually no visual evidence of how the timbers are connected apart from some small 12mm diameter timber plugs in some of the joints.  This can be a cost-effective system depending on the timber sizes and applied loads.  Timberworks pre-designed barns use a hidden steel connection systems along with Mortice and Tenon joinery.

Most projects used hidden steel connections of some sort unless the client has specifically requested that only Mortise and Tenon joints are to be used as generally a combination of the two works well.
