Load Tables

  1. Uplift loads have been increased 60% for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Wind (160) is a download rating.
  3. Loads shown are based on a minimum 2-2x6 carrying member. For single 2x carrying members (min. 2x6), use 10dx1 1/2" nails and use 0.67 of the table value.
  4. Tabulated hip and jack allowable loads assume that 75% of the total load is distributed to the hip and 25% to the jack. It is permitted to distribute 65% to 85% of the tabulated total load to the hip, and the remaining percentage of total load to the jack. The combined hip and jack load may not exceed the published Total Load.
  5. Truss chord cross-grain tension may limit allowable loads in accordance with ANSI/TPI 1-2014. Simpson Strong-Tie® Connector Selector® software includes the evaluation of cross-grain tension in its hanger allowable loads. For additional information, contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
  6. NAILS: 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long, 10dx1 1/2 = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
