TPI introduced a new factor and new quality control ansii/tpi to better account for real-world conditions and the likely possibility that the items mentioned above will affect the strength of trusses. If the value is left at 10 degrees, no note is printed.

Plating Again – Details of Fabrication Tolerance. If not, is the travel distance allowed to be increased to feet if smoke and heat vents are installed?

Plt Tol, which is entered in 16ths ansii/tpi an inch, literally reduces the effective size of the plate in all directions for calculation purposes. If the fabrication tolerance is less than 20 percent for roof trusses or 11 percent for floor trusses, the TPI Section 3.

The bigger the number the quicker the program will find a plate. Here are the square inches of plates Ansi/rpi found on a common truss run with various settings.

Plating Again – Details of Fabrication Tolerance

There is no single correct value. No change was made to the FBC with regard to this issue. YES, the code does allow transfer of air from the guest room to be used for bathroom exhaust.


TPI further clarifies and refines how to use the new factor and quality procedures. Therefore, it was the intent of the code to allow the travel distance to be increased to feet for S1 occupancy when smoke and heat vents are installed. The answer is NO, Section The treads and risers are permitted to be so proportional that the sum of two risers and a tread, ansi/pi of projection of nosing, is not less than 24 inches nor more than 25 ansj/tpi.

This should not be interpreted as being representative of the overall effect of these controls — just an example of the fact that they operate independently.

TPI states that either the fabrication tolerance or the quality control factor Cq must be stated on each truss design drawing. Is the correct allowable travel distance in Table Typically, truss manufacturers will use a higher tolerance for roof trusses than for floor trusses because of the greater geometric complexity of roof trusses and in recognition of the fact that the roof ansi/tpj manufacturing process requires placement of the truss plate on the underside of the truss during fabrication.

When changing the air handler unit only of the split system located in New Port Richey in the Park Lake Estates subdivision, does it constitute as a repair 1-2020 a replacement?

Does the referenced code allow the transfer of bathroom exhaust make up air from the corridor to the guest room? The fabrication tolerance may be any value from zero to 30 percent or even higher.

Is it the intent of the Section Because they do different things, if Fab Tol and Plt Tol are both used, they are usually additive.



If the Fab Tol is reduced by this method, ansi//tpi note will appear on the Engineering Drawing specifying the reduced Fabrication Tolerance for that joint. The smaller the value, the slower the plating routine will run but with a better chance of allowing for some defects at the joint.

According to Section You can use a different value than 10 degrees based on your Quality Assurance program. Thanks to JM for asking the questions that led to this article.

In order for the proposed project to be built following the unlimited area provisions of Section June 24, by Gunnar Isaacson. The two design options are as follows:.

Furthermore, accessory components such as windows, doors, etc. As per Sections Thus, separate approval for individual building per Rule 9B is outside the scope of Rule 9B The strength of trusses is affected significantly by the quality of: In addition to the requirements of Section The smaller this value, the smaller the plates, but for any value below 10 a note specifying the Rotational Tolerance will be shown on the Engineering Drawing.

The third-party agency that audits the quality control procedures used in the truss plant must also agree that the quality procedure matches the fabrication tolerances shown on the truss design drawings. Therefore, it is the intent of the FBC Table
