Load Tables

Cold-Formed Steel Member Connection Loads, Steel-to-Steel

  1. Screws and their connections have been tested per AISI Standard Test Method S904-08 and S905-08.
  2. Loads are based on cold-formed steel members with a minimum yield strength, Fy = 33 ksi and tensile strength, Fu = 45 ksi for 43 mil (18 ga.) and thinner, and a minimum yield strength, Fy = 50 ksi and tensile strength, Fu = 65 ksi for 54 mil (16 ga.) and thicker.
  3. Screws shall extend through the connection with a minimum of three exposed threads per AISI General Provisions Standard Section D1.3.

Screw Strength (lb.)

Pss — Shear strength

Pts — Tensile strength

Allowable Loads for Connectors in Trex Elevations

  1. Loads are for one part only.
  2. Loads are for 8" headers/joists.
  3. F1 load refers to the download or the uplift loads acting along the web of the joist/header.
