Hello all,

We have a situation for a canopy we are designing where some 8" deep 18 
ga joists frame perpendicularly into a W8 x 10.  What we are looking at 
using for the connection is 14 ga clip angles screwed to the joists with 
#12 screws and then bolted to the W8 with 3/8" dia bolts.  Any comments 
or suggestions.  Note: this is in south georgia and will have moderate 
wind forces but no earthquake forces.


Why not shoot them in the W8x10 with a powder actuated fastener?
