timber rivets

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
design provisions for timber rivets have been incorporated in the 1997 edition
of the NDS. contact AF&PA publications at 800-890-7732 for ordering info. or
visit the website at

building officials usually are willing to accept this type of new provision
since it is in a nationally recognized design standard. contact AF&PA's help
desk at 202/463-4713 if you have acceptance issues and you will be directed to
one of AF&PA's building code experts located around the country, who can assist
with these types of issues.
