"TIMBERLINX was the chosen connection system used to replace the massive steel multi-bladed knife plates and bolts for the connections on this log tower and other similar structures at the new Trail of the Tiger at the Norfolk Zoo. Timber pole sizes ranged from 6" in diameter to 24" in diameter for the main base poles and the first level of beams. Neil Maclean worked closely with the General Contractor to make sure their crew knew exactly how to install the connectors."
