Load Tables

Allowable Loads — CLT Floor Values

Allowable Loads — CLT Floor Values

For SI: 1 inch = 25.4 mm; 1 lbf = 4.45 N.

  1. The allowable loads are based on CLT grades E1-E4 and V1-V4 of APA PRG-320.
  2. Installation and fastener schedule assume platform framing, i.e., install vertical leg at bottom edge of CLT wall panel, and horizontal leg on CLT floor panel with 3 7/8" minimum edge distance.
  3. Allowable loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed.
    Reduce for other load durations as required by code.
  4. Nails: CNA 4 x 60 nail = 4 mm diameter x 60 mm long proprietary ring-shank nail; 0.162" x 2 1/2" nail = 0.162" diameter x 2 1/2" long.
  5. Screws: SD #10 x 2 1/2" = 0.162" shank diameter x 2 1/2" long Simpson Strong-Drive® SD Connector screw.

Allowable Loads — Anchorage to Concrete Values

Allowable Loads — Anchorage to Concrete Values

For SI: 1 inch = 25.4 mm; 1 lbf = 4.45 N.

  1. The allowable loads are based on CLT grades E1-E4 and V1-V4 of APA PRG-320.
  2. Allowable loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed.
    Reduce for other load durations as required by code.
  3. The designer must specify the anchor bolt type, length, and embedment. Allowable load shall be taken as lower of anchorage capacity per designer and the loads listed on the table.
  4. Nails: 0.162" x 2 1/2" nail = 0.162" diameter x 2 1/2" long.
  5. Screws: SD #10 x 2 1/2" = 0.162" shank diameter x 2 1/2" long Simpson Strong-Drive SD Connector screw.
