Technical Bulletin (TB-IJ-7)

Subject: Sloped-End Cut IB I-Joists

There are situations where architectural geometric restrictions of the cornice detailing require that the attic ceiling / floor joist be cut at a slope to match the sloped rafters. The bearing and shear capacity can be seriously compromised with this type of sloped-end cut on an I-Joist. International Beams has tested sloped-end cuts on IB I-joists. As a result of these APA-witnessed tests, we have established maximum end reactions for unreinforced and reinforced sloped-end cuts.

Technical Bulletin (TB-IJ-8)

Subject: System Bracing Option for Cantilevered IB I-joists

System bracing is always required by the building code. The IRC has details for system bracing at the top of braced walls at the roof level. This technical bulletin offers an alternative to full-depth I-joist blocking at cantilevered IB I-joists at the floor level.

Technical Bulletin (TB-IJ-9)

Subject: Adding web filler for 2-ply (double member) IB I-joists with 2x4 flanges

When adding web filler for 2-ply (double member) IB I-joists with 2x4 flanges, it can be less labor-intensive to use dimensional lumber rather than cut structural wood panel to depth. The new TB-IJ-9 provides an alternate to the structural wood panel filler indicated in the IB literature.
