About this Product
ForeJoist is our creation and solution for home builders who wish to create their own floor trusses without going to a manufacturer
Span (L) is based on overall distance including 5-1/2″ bearing, uniformly loaded joist. Clear Span (Lc) to Depth Ratio Limited to 20 to reduce Vibration and Bouncing. Minimum 5/8″ sub floor shall be used according to recognized practice by using min. 2″ common nails placed @ 6″ c/c at edges of sheathing panels and 12″ elsewhere.
For roof application, the span length is actual length measured along the ForeJoist length. 2X4 lateral braces must be installed at vertical spacers flush with top or bottom chord. To determine the number of lateral braces required please refer to the Lateral Braces Requirement tables.
ForeTruss Systems should be consulted for spans where the loading conditions are different than shown in the above table
