The joist may be set with the 11⁄2-in. knockout holes turned either up or down. SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR ENGINEERED JOISTS The codes require that the manufacturer’s installation instructions be strictly followed! 44 FLOORS Figure 4-9 NEVER HANG JOIST BY TOP FLANGE OR WEB Figure 4-10 NEVER PLACE BIRD’S-MOUTH CUT IN BOTTOM FLANGE AT HIGH END OF RAFTER 46 47 Spans and Loads Refer to Tables 4-8 and 4-9 for allowable loads for the AJS 20 and AJS 25. The following notes (courtesy of Boise Cascade Corporation) apply to calculations of allowable uniform loads on AJS 20 and AJS 25 engineered joists (Tables 4-8 and 4-9): • Total load values are limited by shear, moment, or total load deflection equal to L/240 (refer to Figure 4-15 on page 55).

Code requires that cantilevered joists have a 3:1 ratio for uplift. For every foot protruding, there must be 3 ft supported. FLOORS 37 All nailing connections must be complete in order to comply with the load capabilities. Refer to Figure 4-4. ENGINEERED JOISTS See Figure 4-5 for an example of minimum permissible hole locations in engineered joists and refer to the next section for further guidelines on cutting and drilling engineered joists. ❏ Check joist lateral supports. • BCI joists must be laterally supported at the ends with hangers, BCI rim joists, rim boards, BCI blocking panels, or xbracing.

Cuts or notches on ledgers must be < 1⁄4 the depth. • Holes should not be made within 2 in. of top or bottom and hole diameter must be < 1⁄3 the depth. • Header joists <4 ft may be a single member. Use a double member if more than 4 ft. • Hangers must be used if header joists are > 6 ft. • Engineered floor trusses cannot be altered! • Sawn beams (4 in. and more) cannot be notched, drilled, or cut except at their ends for a ledger (1⁄4 the depth). • Doubled joists that are separated to allow for piping or vents are to be fully depth blocked by lumber not less than 2 in.
