An area of major concern for builders is ensuring the building products they use in the construction of a dwelling meets the desired design criteria for which they are intended. Using the wrong or an underrated product often results in re-work being ordered by building authorities and can be a major threat to a builder’s financial stability and long term reputation.  

One way builders can be certain that they are not compromising the structural integrity of their job is by insisting on using only engineered building products. Reputable suppliers support their products with technical data sheets and can provide engineering assistance should they be required to substantiate their work at a later date. 

MiTek Australia has a huge range of engineered building products, made to answer specific on-site needs.  All are designed, engineered and manufactured to ISO9001 Standard and are rigorously tested and retested to ensure they pass and in most cases, exceed Australian Standards. 

Plus, to make selecting the right product for the right application easy, MiTek have produced the handy, 2010 code compliant MiTek GUIDE Edition 2.  Edition 1 proved such a success…with several reprints required as builders, architects and engineers alike soon saw the merits in having a quick reference guide for Engineered Building Products and their correct usage applications.  This latest edition includes: new Loading Code AS/NZS 1170, plus it complies with the BCA 2010. Like edition 1, pages in the MiTek GUIDE Edition 2 are colour-coded and include detailed product by product illustrations for easy, accurate reference to a huge range of engineered building products. 

The MiTek GUIDE Edition 2 takes all the guesswork out of choosing building products for specific uses.  It will assist in the interpretation of Australian Standards AS 1684.2 ‘Residential Timber-Framed Construction’ and AS 4440. ‘Installation of nail plated roof trusses.’  The MiTek GUIDE will also help users choose the right fasteners and bracing products to comply with these standards.  Plus, should a query be raised at a later date, there’s comfort in knowing you’ve used the MiTek GUIDE Edition 2 to ensure you’ve complied with the correct engineering requirements.  

MiTek GUIDE Edition 2 comes in both printed form and as a CD…or can even be downloaded from the MiTek web site.

Everyone involved in the design or construction of buildings should have a copy or CD of the MiTek GUIDE – and the best part is: they’re FREE!”
