Center plates are the structural and decorative iron plates that support angled struts and the King strut to a horizontal beam in the center of a truss. These iron brackets are available in all our hammered textures and all our finishes. Fasteners are sold seperately. For structural applications with heavy loads we recommend through bolting with 1/2" diameter or larger fasteners. We do not recommend any of our overhead metal plates be installed with clavos.
