LIMIT STATE DESIGN LOAD

Design Capacities for a Single High Load Easy Grip

Joint groupUplift Capacity (kN)
J2/JD3 24.9
J3/JD4 17.6
J4/JD5 12.4

NOTE: The capacities are derived from AS1720-2010 and are for uplift in houses where failure is unlikely to affect an area greater than 25m2. For primary elements in structures other than houses or elements in a house for which failure would be greater than 25m2 these capacities must be multiplied by 0.94. For primary joints in essential services or post disaster buildings multiply by 0.88. For 2/Grips the values can be doubled.
