RE: Sloped Rafter Bearing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Joe,

 

I don’t necessarily need a beveled top plate for shear transfer.  The original question is whether a beveled top plate or a variable pitch connector is more economical for a sloped TJI in bearing.  It seems from the responses I have received, like so many things, it depends on who you ask.  =)  Oh well.

 

Thanks,

If you need beveled plate for shear transfer why use adjustable pitch connector.
