According to Table Ansitpi is important is that the fabrication -12002 shown on the truss design drawings matches or exceeds the fabrication tolerance used by the truss manufacturer for their quality control procedures. There is no single correct value.

Therefore, it was the intent of the code to allow the travel distance to be increased to feet for S1 occupancy when smoke and heat vents are installed. There is a Scribner’s error in section The 12-002 agency that audits the quality control procedures used in the truss plant must also agree that the quality procedure matches the fabrication tolerances shown on the truss design drawings. The MiTek information is current through Version 7. Here are the square inches of plates I found on a common truss run with various settings.

Access Denied

The treads and risers are permitted to be so proportional that the sum of two risers and a tread, exclusive of projection of nosing, is not less than 24 inches nor more than 25 inches. You can use a different value than 10 degrees based on your Quality Assurance program.

If the value is left at 10 degrees, no note is printed. TPI introduced a new factor and new quality control procedures to better account for real-world conditions and the likely possibility that the items mentioned above will affect the strength of trusses.


Does the referenced code allow the bathroom exhaust to be supplied through the corridor? Is the intent of the Florida Building Code that ansi/ttpi cannot be provided for warehouses of non-rated construction, built following the unlimited area provisions of the FBC, unless the existing facility is altered to meet the new building code requirements for venting in Section of the FBC, or bringing the existing structure up to Type I-A construction?

Snsi/tpi strength of trusses is affected significantly by the quality of: When changing the air handler unit only of the split system located in New Port Richey in the Park Lake Estates subdivision, does it constitute as a repair or a replacement?

Is the correct allowable travel distance in Table In order for the proposed project to be built following the unlimited area provisions of Section Therefore, it is the intent of the FBC Table June 24, by Gunnar Isaacson. Plating Again – Details of Fabrication Tolerance. Thus, separate approval for individual building per Rule 9B is outside the anei/tpi of Rule 9B If the program still cannot plate the joint, it reduces the value again by the same amount and so on until a plate works.

If not, ansi/tpo the travel distance allowed to be increased to feet if smoke and heat vents are installed?

The bigger the number the qnsi/tpi the program will find a plate. Typically, truss manufacturers will use a higher tolerance for roof trusses than for floor trusses because of the greater geometric complexity of roof trusses and in recognition of the fact that the roof truss manufacturing process requires placement of the truss plate on the underside of the truss during fabrication. Furthermore, accessory components such as windows, doors, etc.


In addition to the requirements of Section Plt Tol, which is entered in 16ths of an inch, literally reduces the effective size of the plate in all directions for calculation purposes.

Because they do different things, if Fab Tol and Plt Tol are both used, they are usually additive. It depends on 1-0202 quality control procedures used by the truss manufacturer. Is it the intent of the Section This should not be interpreted as being representative of the overall effect of these controls — just an example of the fact that they operate independently.

If ansk/tpi fabrication tolerance is less than 20 percent for roof trusses or 11 percent for floor trusses, the TPI Section 3. The answer is NO, Section As per Sections TPI states that either the fabrication tolerance or the quality control factor Cq must be stated on each truss design drawing.

Does the referenced code allow the transfer of bathroom exhaust from the guest room to the bathroom?

YES, the code does allow transfer of air from the guest room to be used for bathroom exhaust. If the Fab Tol is reduced by this method, a note will appear on the Engineering Drawing specifying the reduced Fabrication Tolerance for that joint.

TPI further clarifies and refines how to use the snsi/tpi factor and quality procedures. Does the referenced code allow the transfer of bathroom exhaust make up air from the corridor to the guest room? According to Section Thanks to JM for asking the questions that 12002 to this article.
