Load Tables

  1. Factored uplift resistances have been increased 15% for short-term loading and are for each connecting member. Reduce where other loads govern.
  2. The factored normal resistances are based on the combined load from both connecting members.
  3. For single-ply hips or jacks verify that the 3" bearing length does not govern.
  4. Factored uplift resistances shown are for each joist.
  5. Nails: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
