What is the maximum roof pitch angle, beyond which the sloped roof can no longer be considered an effective resistive diaphragm element for transfer of lateral loads?


WFCM 2.1.3.4d and 3.1.3.4d limits the maximum roof slope to 12:12.


The following FAQ is based on the presentation of STD312 - Part 3 of the 2012 WFCM Webinar Series: Connections.
