Nail plate laminated beam dimensions were 45 x 147 mm consisting of two laminates of either all red gum and stringy bark interconnected by nail plates producing beams spanning 6 m continuous over three supports. The solid beam was of red gum with dimensions of 50 x 150 mm. All timber was stress graded at F14 and the nail plates were manufactured by Bostitch."--p. (ii).
