Jump To Full Code Chapter
Where permanent restraint of truss members is required on the truss design drawings, it shall be accomplished by one of the following methods:
  1. Permanent individual truss member restraint/bracing shall be installed using standard industry lateral restraint/bracing details in accordance with generally accepted engineering practice. Locations for lateral restraint shall be identified on the truss design drawing.
  2. The trusses shall be designed so that the buckling of any individual truss member is resisted internally by the individual truss through suitable means (for example, buckling reinforcement by T-reinforcement or L-reinforcement, proprietary reinforcement). The buckling reinforcement of individual members of the trusses shall be installed as shown on the truss design drawing or on supplemental truss member buckling reinforcement details provided by the truss designer.
  3. A project-specific permanent individual truss member restraint/bracing design shall be permitted to be specified by any registered design professional.
