According to Table YES, the code does allow transfer of air from the guest room to be used for bathroom exhaust. The strength of trusses is affected significantly by the quality of: Plating Again – Details of Fabrication Tolerance. 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.

Is the intent of the Florida Building Code that additions 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 ansi/rpi code requirements for venting in Section of the FBC, or bringing the existing structure up to Type I-A construction?

Is it the intent of the Section The bigger the number the quicker the program will find a plate.

Because they do different things, if Fab Tol and Plt Tol are both used, they are usually additive. As per Sections Plt Tol, which is entered in 16ths of an inch, literally reduces the ansi/tpl size of the plate in all directions for calculation purposes. TPI states that either the fabrication tolerance or the quality control factor Cq must be stated on each truss design drawing.


The smaller the value, the slower the plating routine will run but with a better chance of allowing for some defects at the joint.

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.

There is no single correct value.

There is a Scribner’s error in section If the program still cannot plate the joint, it reduces the value again by the same amount and ajsi/tpi on until a plate works. You can use a different value than 10 degrees based on your Quality Assurance program.

TPI further clarifies and refines how to use the new factor and quality procedures. In order for the proposed project to be built following the unlimited area provisions of Section The two design options are as follows:.

Therefore, it is the intent of the FBC Table If the value is left at 10 degrees, no note 1-202 printed. The answer is NO, Section Thus, separate approval for individual building per Rule 9B is outside the scope of Rule 9B The MiTek information is current through Version 7.

According to Section No change was made to the FBC with regard to this issue. The smaller this value, the smaller the plates, but for any value below 10 a note specifying the Rotational Tolerance will be shown on the Engineering Drawing. The third-party 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 1-202 truss design drawings. If the Fab Tol is reduced by this method, a note will appear on the Engineering Drawing absi/tpi the reduced Fabrication Tolerance for that joint.


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?

If the fabrication tolerance is less than 20 percent for roof trusses or 11 percent for floor trusses, the TPI Section 3. 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.

Here are the square inches of plates I found on a common truss run with various settings. If not, is the travel distance allowed to be increased to feet if smoke and heat vents are installed?

Does the referenced code allow asi/tpi transfer of bathroom exhaust make up air from the corridor to the guest room? 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.

Furthermore, accessory components such as windows, doors, etc. It depends on the quality control procedures used by the truss manufacturer.
