Market leadership has been steadily built and carefully maintained over the last 50 years of supply to the New Zealand building industry through builder’s merchants and timber truss fabricators.


The MiTek Truss System is based on MiTek design software and the GANG-NAIL connector plate, a steel plate with multiple spikes or teeth projecting from one face. The connector plates are pressed into the timber using hydraulic or pneumatic presses. Timber components can be joined together with strength and ease to make trusses and other structural timber components.


The range of LUMBERLOK Tylok Plates and Nailon connectors is used in the assembly of timber framing for both residential and commercial construction.

Most products in the LUMBERLOK range are site applied and comply with various requirements of the NZ Building Code.

Products are manufactured from pre-galvanised steel coil for internal situations, or can be hot dip galvanised after manufacture or, for harsh environments, manufactured from 304 stainless steel.

LUMBERLOK products are available through leading Builders Supply Merchants.
