Structural members of a truss should never be cut without proper field repair engineering. Non-structural members, such as overhangs or filler bottom chords may be cut as long as they do not interfere with the structural integrity of the truss. If you are in doubt, stop. Do not cut and give us a call.
Temporary bracing is bracing that is installed to hold the trusses true to line, dimensions, and plumb during the erection of the roof. In addition, temporary bracing holds the trusses in a stable condition until permanent truss bracing and other permanent components such as roof and floor sheathing, joist, or purlins, which contribute to the overall rigidity of the roof or floor, are in place.
Permanent bracing is bracing that will be installed in the roof as a permanent part of the roof system. The most common form of permanent bracing is continuous lateral bracing, which is a member placed and connected at right angles to a chord or web to prevent it from buckling under design loads. Other forms of bracing include T-Braces, L-Braces and scabs. The supplied truss certificate will indicate if permanent bracing is required. In addition to the bracing prescribed in the truss certificate, all roof trusses are designed to have continuous lateral bracing on their top chords in the form of either roof sheathing or purlins. Bottom chords must be braced by continuous lateral bracing at 10′ on centre.
