Description & Documents
The FS12B Truss Field Splice Kit makes job site splicing of long trusses easier. This kit includes a pair of plates, bolts, nuts and a splice clip for top chord alignment. Allowable loads are sometimes limited by tension in the net section of the wood. Choose the bottom chord size and species that will satisfy the tension requirement. Analyze tension in the web to determine the required size. It is made of 3-gauge steel with a primer finish (plates), a G90 galvanizing finish (splice clip) and zinc plating (bolts).
- Use all specified fasteners (twelve 3/4" x 3" bolts included in kit)
- Not for use with treated lumber
- Position the 2 trusses, center 1 splice plate on the bottom chords and clamp in place for a drilling template. Install the Splice Clip at the top truss plate and fasten with eighteen 10d x 1-1/2" nails (not included in kit). Drill through the bottom chord using splice plate as a template. Place splice plate on each side and bolt the connection firmly
