I am not familiar with this rating, but you might try to contact Kirk Grundahl at the Wood Truss Council of America (WTCA) kgrundahl(--nospam--at)qualtim.com . However, you might want to simply ask the truss manufacturer first to explain the stamp.
Sorry I couldn’t be of more help to you.

I'm looking at a prefabricated wood truss. It is marked SWB No 20NS. Any suggestions on what this means? It is 14" deep overall, constructed from 2x4 lumber and has king posts spaced at 62".
Thanks in advance.
