LTHMA Light-Duty Multiple-Truss Hanger Load Table
  1. Allowable loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Hip loads are for each hip.
  3. Load distribution is 45% for each hip and 10% for jack. Other hip-jack load distributions are allowed if the load sum for all three carried members does not exceed the total load and the hip members are equally loaded.
  4. 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.
  5. Fasteners: Nail dimensions in the table are listed diameter by length. For additional information, see Fastener Types and Sizes Specified for Simpson Strong-Tie Connectors.
