Wood Truss Bracing

Wood Truss Bracing

Wood Truss Bracing

Does "ANSI/TPI 1-1995" aka "National Design Standard for Metal Plate Connected Wood Truss Construction" really exist?

If it does, I sure would like to know how I could get a copy. The ANSI web page isn't any help. TPI doesn't seem to have a web page, and Wood Truss dot com will sell you a commentary on ANSI/TPI 1-1995, but not the actual standard. I'm particularly interested in permanent lateral bracing design.


RE: Wood Truss Bracing

the standard exists
and more importantly there exists current commentary and
ballot for the 2002 stanadard which probably should be
followed / revised more enthusiastically.


RE: Wood Truss Bracing

Glad to hear it exists. Where can I purchase a copy? Do you know how much it costs?

RE: Wood Truss Bracing

The Truss Plate Institure does have a web page. All o ftheir publications are listed on their site www.tpinst.org.
Good Luck!

RE: Wood Truss Bracing

By gosh, they do have a web site!

Man, talk about finding a needle in a haystack!

Now it says "copyright 2001" but I tell you, I sure couldn't find any links to this site or anything else until your reply. Nevertheless, it's nice that TPI is one the web.
