The MSCPT is a high-capacity, top flange welded hanger designed to carry 2 or 3 trusses in a terminal hip installation. The top flange is notched at the center to accommodate vertical and diagonal web members in the girder truss.
Material Top flange — 3 gauge; stirrup — 11 gauge (MSCPT2, MSCPT2N), 7 gauge (MSCPT2-2, MSCPT2-2N)
Finish Simpson Strong-Tie ® gray paint
Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes. The total load must be evenly distributed about the centerline to avoid eccentric loading. All multiple members must be fastened together to act as a single unit. Minimum vertical carrying member sizes are 2x6 for MSCPT2 and MSCPT2N, and 2x8 for MSCPT2-2 and MSCPT2-2N. Minimum carrying member bottom chord is a 2-ply 2x6.
Options H1 and H2 should be equal to the bottom chord depth of the carrying member in order to maintain all members flush at the bottom. Hip stirrups can be skewed from 25° to 45°. The W1 and W2 of the MSCPT2 may be increased up to 3 7/16", provided the stirrups' configuration remains symmetrical. Load Tables
For MSCPT2 and MSCPT2-2 models, allowable hip loads are 0.40 x Total Loads, and Jack Loads are 0.20 x Total Loads.
Uplift loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
Wind (160) is a download rating.
