Table Notes:

  1. Fasteners and anchors are supplied with Steel Strong-Portal
  2. Rb is the racking resistance determined from tests carried out in accordance to BS EN 594:2011
  3. It is the responsibilty of the building engineer/designer to ensure the foundation and hold down achors can take the applied tension and compression loads.
  4. It is recomended to use either Glulam or LVL as the head timber.  Width = 90mm and Height = 315mm
  5. Axial loads have been determined when maximum racking load is being applied. The building engineer/designer to consider header timber can resist applied vertical loads.
