TrussSpacers make  a big impression

Vos Construction & Joinery Pty Ltd in Western Junction, Tasmania are always on the look-out for ways to make the job on-site easier – and safer! A recent job: the new City Mission warehouse in Youngtown measured 37.5m long by 14.5m wide; requiring trusses 16m long! They were big enough to span the large, concrete slab floor below with ease, but also big enough to make erection rather awkward.

‘Our (licensed MiTek) fabricator, Blue Mountains Hardware said the trusses were pretty long,’ said Vos Construction & Joinery Site Foreman, Dean Bradford. ‘But they also added: MiTek’s TrussSpacers would help us erect them a bit quicker. They were right!’

‘We’ve got carpenters who’ve been with us for over 30 years,’ said Dean. ‘We showed them how to install a truss with TrussSpacers and, after about 10 minutes, they were hooked. One bloke even said they were the best thing he’d seen,’ added Dean. ‘Everyone agreed: TrussSpacers were so easy to use – and, more importantly...they felt safe using them. Plus, the whole thing went up without a hitch...and faster than anyone expected.’
