Would using 14 ga. staples at closer spacing not require the use of 3" or wider framing members? Isn't the 3" or wider requirement based on splintering of the framing and/or plywood and if so, does the smaller diameter staples (or 8d nails?) cause the same concerns as 10d nails? At what spacing would they also be of concern? Anybody know of any testing or code provisions or have some information on this subject? Does NER-272 contain this information? Thanks, Peder Golberg, P.E. Portland, OR ...
