SBCA Load Guide

The Load Guide was created for use by building designers (architects and engineers), building code officials, component manufacturers, truss designer engineers and truss technicians, with the goal of helping users more easily understand, define and specify all the loads that should be applied to the design of each structural building component.

Structural Details for CAD

SBCA makes these Structural Details available to anyone involved in construction applications using metal plate connected wood trusses (MPCWT). SBCA hopes that these details will be of value, save time in the design process, and educate those in the proper application of MPCWT.
