Tech Notes

The goal of SBCA Tech Notes is to clarify code issues and help educate the marketplace for structural building component manufacturers.

These peer reviewed documents address critical issues such as:

  • Continuous lateral bracing
  • Seals and Truss Placement Diagrams
  • Jobsite handling and installation
