That is an old TrusJoist open web truss designation. I have a TrusJoist MacMillan pamphlet from 1992 that shows them. TrusJoist should still have documentaion on them. / eric

I have a set of plans form the 1970s that call out the gable roof
trusses as "14-6 6-14 TJL ROOF TRUSS @ 2'-8" OC".  The upper surface is
approximately a 4:12 pitch.  Also, the plans show glulam beams 5-1/8 x
18 that apparently support the trusses.  The ceiling is a hard lid and
there is no attic space.  Any idea of what these trusses are?  It
appears that the glulam beams have been pushed up and that these trusses
are top-chord bearing.
