Title (EN) BUILDING WITH ROOF TRUSSES DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO THE FOUNDATION
(FR) CONSTRUCTION AVEC FERMES CONNECTÉES DIRECTEMENT AUX FONDATIONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN) The present invention provides a building comprising a foundation; a wall supported by the foundation; and trusses supported by the wall. A plurality of hold down assemblies connects at least some of the trusses directly to the foundation. Each hold down assembly comprises an anchor; a tie-rod connected to the anchor; a bearing plate operably associated with an end portion of an associated truss for transferring load to the tie-rod; and a fastener securing the tie-rod to the bearing plate, thereby tying the associated truss directly to the foundation.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une construction comportant des fondations; un mur dont le support est assuré par les fondations ; et des fermes dont le support est assuré par le mur. Une pluralité de systèmes de retenue relie au moins certaines des fermes directement aux fondations. Chaque système de retenue comporte un ancrage ; un tirant relié à l'ancrage ; une plaque d'appui associée en fonctionnement à une partie d'extrémité d'une ferme associée pour le transfert de la charge au tirant ; et une attache fixant le tirant à la plaque d'appui, permettant ainsi l'attache de la ferme associée directement aux fondations.
