Material

  • 20 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized. Available with ZMAX® coating. See Corrosion Information.

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
  • SP1/SP2/SP3/SP5 — One of the 10d common stud nails is driven at a 45° angle through the stud into the plate

  1. SP1/SP2 — drive one stud nail at an angle through the stud into the plate to achieve the table load (see illustration).
  2. Allowable loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  3. When cross-grain bending or cross-grain tension cannot be avoided, mechanical reinforcement to resist such forces should be considered.
  4. For retrofit application see technical bulletin T-C-STRAPS.
  5. Use Side (eccentric) load when uplift loads are applied to only one face of the top plate.
  6. Use Center (concentric) loads when uplift loads are applied at the centerline of the top plate, or where equal loads are applied.
  7. Nails: 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long, 10d x 1 1/2" = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long, 8d x 1 1/2" = 0.131" dia. x 1 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
