It is the responsibility of the installer/contractor to properly receive, store, handle and brace metal plate connected wood trusses to protect life and property.

The Truss Plate Institute of Canada has created a set of guidelines for safe handling installation and bracing in PDf format that are available on the internet.

Prior to any component installation, the documents accompanying the product should be carefully examined and distributed to the appropriate persons. Included in these documents are hanger specifications, if applicable, a layout, which is an aerial representation of the project depicting component locations, and an engineering page for each truss design. Installation should begin only once all bearing and installation locations have been verified and any unsatisfactory situations have been rectified.

Cutting, drilling, or altering any truss in any way from its original design will void the engineering approval. Should any changes be required, DJ Jackson’s will supply the appropriate details and instructions for repairs due to bearing modifications, design modifications and/or any damage that may occur. Contact DJ Jackson’s immediately for assistance in resolving any of these situations.

The engineering drawings which have been provided contain all necessary information for installation including spacing, bearing locations and sizes, point load locations, and any applicable nailing patterns. This paperwork is also required by most building departments in order to obtain permit and complete a framing inspection.

All truss designs created by DJ Jackson’s have been reviewed and stamped by a certified engineer based on the information provided by the client.
