Truss Plates

The Truss Plate Institute of Canada, through the provisions of the TPIC Design Standards, requires that

All plate manufacturers shall have their plates listed in the Registry of Product Evaluations published by Canadian Construction Materials Centre, Institute for Research in Construction, Ottawa, Ontario.”

This ensures consistency in the testing of truss plates and the design of wood trusses for the Canadian specific market to meet the requirements of CSA S347, CSA O86 and TPIC.
