Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
  • Use STC or DTC depending on required loads. STC, installed with Drywall Stop (DS), helps prevent fasteners tearing through the ceiling sheetrock (see installation illustration).
  • Use STCT where truss or rafter is separated from the top plate of the nonbearing wall.
  • Install slot nails in the middle of the slot.
  • Products not intended for floor applications due to the frequency of floor joist deflections and potential for squeaks.
  • View step-by-step installation instructions in the Installer's Pocket Guide (S-C-INSTALL).

Load Tables

  1. Loads may not be increased for short-term loading.
  2. Truss or rafter must be bearing on top plate to achieve the allowable loads under "WITHOUT GAP."
  3. Clips are required on both sides of the truss to achieve F1 loads in both directions (stagger parts to avoid nail interferences).
  4. Nails: 8d = 0.131" dia. x 2 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
