Load Tables

SDWV — Allowable Shear Loads for Sole-to-Rim Connection

  1. Allowable loads are based on testing per ICC-ES AC233 and are limited to parallel-to-grain loading. The equivalent specific gravity for the LVL and LSL having a minimum 0.8E designation for edge fastening is 0.50.
  2. Allowable loads are shown at the wood load duration factor of CD = 1.00. Loads may be increased for load duration as permitted by the building code up to a CD = 1.60.
  3. Minimum spacing of the SDWV is 6" o.c., minimum end distance is 6", and minimum edge distance is 5/8".
  4. Wood structural panel up to 23/32" thick is permitted between the sole plate and rim board provided it is fastened to the rim board per code and the minimum penetration of the screw into the rim board is met.
  5. Minimum rim board height shall be 9 1/4" when fastening a sole plate and a single top plate to the rim board with SDWV screws.
  6. Sole-to-rim loads can be achieved without a wall below.
