Specifying Trusses

The following resources are for specifying metal plate connected wood trusses:

  • Truss Specification (Updated January 2017): A metal plate connected wood truss specification is available in the 2012 Master Format for Section 06 17 53 Shop Fabricated Wood Trusses. It is a great way to keep truss specifications up to date and in line with industry practice. Download the form (pdf or Word) and copy it into current project specification documents.
  • Structural Details for CAD: Free downloads of over 100 structural details for roof trusses, floor trusses, hangers, hold-downs and temporary bracing. The files are in .DXF format so they can be edited or inserted directly into construction plans.
