The embedded truss anchor series provides an engineered method to properly attach roof trusses to concrete and masonry walls. Information regarding the use of two anchors on single- and multi-ply trusses is included below.
HHETA — 14 gauge; HETA — 16 gauge; META — 18 gauge
Galvanized. Some products available in ZMAX® coating; see Corrosion Information.
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
The META, HETA and HHETA are embedded 4" into a 6" minimum concrete beam or 8" nominal grouted block wall.
For mislocated truss anchors which are greater than 1/8" but less than 1 1/2" from the face of the truss, a shim must be provided. Shim design by Truss Engineer. When gap is greater than 1 1/2", install new anchors.
In double embedded anchor installations, do not install fasteners where the straps overlap when wrapped over the truss heel.
