HRC Hip-Ridge Connector

HRC

The HRC series are field-slopeable connectors that attach hips to ridge members or trusses. The HRC may be sloped to 45° with no reduction in loads.

Material

  • 16 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • On end of ridge — use optional diamond holes to secure the HRC. Bend face flanges back flush with ridge, and complete nailing.
  • On face of ridge — adjust to correct height and install nails.
  • Double bevel-cut hip members to achieve full bearing capacity.
  • The HRC may be sloped to 45° with no reduction in loads.

Load Tables

  1. Allowable loads shown are for each hip. Total load carried by the connector is double this number.
  2. Uplift loads include a 60% increase for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  3. Roof loads are 125% of floor loads unless limited by other criteria.
  4. NAILS: 10d x 1 1/2 = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
