  1. SWL's are for one anchor. A minimum rafter thickness of 63mm must be used when framing anchors are installed on each side of the joist and on the same side of the plate.
  2. When cross-grain bending or cross-grain tension cannot be avoided, mechanical reinforcement to resist all such forces should be considered.
