Roof Truss and Rafter Connectors, Ties, and Straps

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Roof Truss and Rafter Connectors, Ties, and Straps. You can also view product information related to the category: Rigid Connectors for Cold-Formed Steel Construction

The FCB clip is an economical, high-performance fixed-clip connector that can be used for a variety of framing applications. It is rated for tension, compression, shear and in-plane loads and offers the designer the flexibility of specifying different screw and anchorage patterns that conform to desired load levels.

Key Features

  • Rated for tension, compression, shear and in-plane loads
  • Provides design flexibility with varying screw and anchorage patterns that achieve different load levels
  • Strategically placed stiffeners, embossments and anchor holes maximize connector performance

Material

  • 54 mil (16 ga.)

Finish

  • Galvanized (G90)

Installation

  • Use the specified type and number of anchors.
  • Use the specified number of #12 self-drilling screws to CFS framing. Note that #10 self-drilling screws can be used per the load tables below.

Load Tables

FCB Allowable Connector Loads (lb.)

Load Table - FCB Allowable Connector Loads (lb.)
  1. Min. fastener quantity and load values – fill all round holes; max. fastener quantity and load values – fill all round and triangular holes.
  2. Allowable loads are based on clip capacity only and do not consider anchorage. The capacity of the connection system will be the minimum of the tabulated value and the allowable load from the FCB Allowable Anchorage Loads table below.
  3. Anchorage to the supporting structure using welds or a minimum of (2) #12–24 self-drilling screws is required.
  4. Tabulated F1 loads are based on assembly tests with the load through the centerline of stud. Tested failure modes were due to screw pullout; therefore compare F1 against Fp calculated per ASCE 7-10 Chapter 13 with ap = 1.25 and Rp = 1.0.

FCB Allowable Anchorage Loads

Load Table - FCB Allowable Anchorage Loads
  1. Min. fastener quantity and load values – fill all round holes; max. fastener quantity and load values – fill all round and triangular holes.
  2. For additional important information, see Innovative Solutions for Curtain-Wall Framing.
  3. Allowable loads are for clip anchorage only. The capacity of the connection system will be the minimum of the tabulated allowable anchorage loads the allowable load from the FCB Allowable Connector Load table above.
  4. Allowable loads for #12–24 self-drilling screws and PDPAT powder-actuated fasteners are based on installation in minimum 3/16"-thick structural steel with Fy = 36 ksi. PDPAT values are also provided for A572 steel. Values listed above maybe used where other thicknesses of steel are encountered or other manufacturers are used, provided that the fastener has equal or better tested values (see General Information). It is the responsibility of the designer to select the proper length fasteners based on the steel thickness installation.
  5. For screw fastener installation into steel backed by concrete, predrilling of both the steel and the concrete is suggested. For predrilling use a maximum 3/16"-diameter drill bit.
