Fixings referred to in NZS 3604:2011 Table 2.2

NZS 3604:2011 Timber-framed buildings Table 2.2 lists the fixing types in alphabetical order and shows where they are referenced within the standard. The fixing capacity is given in Table 2.2, but the table also allows the user to choose a different fixing of the same capacity as the fixing listed in the table.

When using an alternative fixing, users need to make sure the fixing chosen is rated for the same purpose, for example, fixings securing a member against uplift will need to match or exceed the given rating in tension.

Summarised from BRANZ Guideline, November 2013.
