With Detailed Truss Installation Guidance, Nothing is Left to Chance

Truss Builders San Diego

Stone Truss provides each project we produce with an informational Jobsite Package from the Structural Building Components Association (SBCA).

The details in the packet provide step-by-step instructions for the handling and installation of the delivered truss, as well as other vital information.

What is the Structural Building Components Association?
The SBCA is the sole international trade association that represents manufacturers of structural building components.

In addition to truss manufactures, SBCA membership also includes lumber suppliers, builders, engineers, and other professionals in the building profession.

Why is the Jobsite Package information so important?
Here at Stone Truss, we’re committed to ensuring the safe and proper installation of our trusses. Each Jobsite Package contains detailed information in English and Spanish on every aspect of each truss that’s being delivered, including:

  • Guidelines and a checklist for the handling, installation, restraint and bracing of the truss
  • Information on safe stack heights, as well as illustrations for good and bad loading practices
  • Guidance on how to properly report any damage to the truss (including modifications and installation errors)
  • Details on uplift and lateral resistance capacities for toe-nailed connections of 2, 3, 4 or 5 nails for various types (other connection options are also included for when toe-nailing is not enough)
  • Information for framing crews on how to assess potential fall hazards when installing trusses.

This detailed and easy-to-follow information is a crucial part to making sure the installation of the roof or floor truss goes as efficiently as possible.

Regardless of who is at fault, errors sometimes do occur. With this information, though, any errors can be corrected by protocol on the fly, making the job more likely to be completed on time and within code requirements.

Discover More About How Stone Truss Makes Building Easier.
Even though we have more than 150 years of combined experience on staff, we’re continually looking for ways to make the manufacturing and installation of trusses as easier and effective as possible.

That includes making sure each Stone Truss product is accompanied with a SBCA Jobsite Package. By following the directions, nothing is left to chance.
