Double wall plate
The anchor is made of 2” wide webbing. Each end has been folded over and stitched to itself creating a large loop at one end and a small loop at the other end. The large loop with the warning label passes through the smaller loop as the anchor is wrapped around the member.
Once the large loop has passed through the small loop, pull the large loop downward to tighten and secure the anchor. No nails are required on a wall plate installation.
Anchors installed on the double plate should be placed no more than 4 (four) feet from the corner and 6 (six) feet apart thereafter.
It is the recommendation of Anchor Solutions that the trusses should be fastened in place before installing anchor on the double plate. Installation of the anchor before the trusses are set could cause damage to the anchor as the trusses are dragged into position.
The same procedure is followed for a truss application. The large loop with the warning label passes through the small loop as the anchor is wrapped around the truss. Pull tight to secure. One (1) nail (3 ¼ inch framing nail) should be used to ensure the anchor will not slide out of position on the truss. The nail should be securely driven into the portion of the anchor that passes over the top of the truss. Ensure that the anchor does not come in contact with the trusses gang nail or gang plate.
On gable ends, do not install anchor on the double plate. The anchors should be installed on the gable truss. The anchor at the peak of the gable truss should be installed slightly to the right or the left of dead centre to avoid the gang nail or gang plate. They should be spaced 6 (six) to 7 (seven) feet apart thereafter. The anchor at the lowest portion of the gable truss should be no more that 4 (four) feet from the corner of the structure.
Roof Truss Continued
Anchors installed on the trusses for roof work protection should be no more than 4 (four) feet in from the fascia board and not more than 10 (ten) feet apart thereafter. Do not install anchor on the ridge board spacers in between the trusses.
On roofs with cottage ends anchors may be installed on the hip to provide protection for workers. The same spacing of 10 (ten) feet is required.
On conventional or hand cut roofs anchor may be installed on the hip or ridge board. On trussed roofs anchor must be installed on the truss. Not on the hip or ridge board spacers. Always avoid gang nail or gang plate.
Roof Truss Continued
When installing the roof sheathing near the anchor be sure to pull the anchor to the top side of the roof sheathing. This will ensure protection for the trades to follow. The anchor should pass through the area where the roof sheathing meets at the peak and at the hip.
TAKE CAUTION WHEN TRIMMING OFF EXCESS ROOF SHEATHING. DAMAGING THE ANCHOR MAY CAUSE SERIOUS INJURIES OR FATALITIES.
