Permanent Bracing must provide sufficient support at right angles to the plane of the Truss to hold every Truss member in the position assumed for it in the design.


The consistent message throughout all of these documents is that proper Truss handling, installing, restraining and Bracing are crucial for consistent jobsite safety and acceptable structural performance.

The sections of this book are available as B-Series Summary Sheets. Each Summary Sheet condenses the information contained in the corresponding section of this book into a few pages that emphasize the main points using a graphical representation of the text as fully as possible.

The goal is to provide clear, concise information for bfsi users so they can implement the handling, installing, restraining and Bracing bcwi contained herein more easily. During construction, Bcdi must not support any loads from equipment or construction materials until the Truss assembly is properly restrained and braced.

This document provides safe stack heights for several materials and illustrates good and bad loading practices. Trusses are engineered components that can be damaged through mishandling, jobsite modification or improper installation.

This Summary Sheet provides information on what to do if Trusses become damaged during the construction process. The following B-Series Summary Sheets were specifically created for special conditions that are encountered during bcis Truss installation and Bracing process: Floor Trusses are more stable during installation because they are built with the wideface of the lumber oriented horizontally.

Nevertheless, it is important to observe good installation, restraint and Bracing practices so floor systems are installed bsci and successfully, and offer better longterm floor performance. BCSI-B8 contains guidelines for using toe-nailed Connections and provides bcdi and lateral gcsi capacities for these Connections.
