The embedded truss anchor series provides an engineered method to properly attach roof trusses to concrete and masonry walls. The products are designed with staggered nail patterns for greater uplift resistance. Information regarding the use of two anchors on single- and multi-ply trusses is included.
Simpson Strong-Tie provides two different moisture barrier plates between the concrete/masonry and truss. The TSS is a preassembled, companion product of the META. The TBP8 seat plate also provides a moisture barrier installed prior to truss placement. The seat plate is installed with prongs, instead of fasteners.
The DETAL20 is a high-capacity embedded truss anchor for attachment of single-ply trusses to concrete and masonry walls. It combines dual embedded anchors with a structural moisture-barrier seat that is partially embedded in the concrete or grout. This seat serves to protect the truss and also provides additional lateral and uplift capacity. The embedded anchors are preattached to the moisture barrier through slots that allow for a slight amount of adjustability, providing flexibility during installation to avoid rebar. The moisture-barrier seat includes tabs at each end for optional attachment to the form board in concrete tie-beam applications.
