- Low Keyed efforts to recruit local metal hardware manufacturers to recognize the benefits of matching their metal hardware to Canada Tsuga brand products finally paid off in the form of a development of a special Truss System by KK Tatsumi of Niigata Prefecture.
- The high MOE ratings available in Canada Tsuga Glue-Lams produced in Japan with MSR Canada Tsuga Lamina from West Coast BC, Canada attracted the attention of KK Tatsumi during their efforts to certify their newly developed P3 Metal Hardware system. While base line tests were conducted using local Sugi wood products, the resulting stress tests did not yield any special performance for the P3 system. The high MOE rated Canada Tsuga Glue-Lams available from Ohno Seizai in Himeji coupled with the high compression perpendicular to grain figures of the tight grained Canada Tsuga were deemed to give the expected high stress performance for the P3 system
- Tests conducted at certified testing laboratories in early 2013 concluded in high test results. The P3 system coupled with E120+ rated Canada Tsuga Glue-Lams are now certified.
- The system has been used in several commercial projects since its certification.
