THUMBNAIL CUT-LIST

[Return to Previous Topic Section]

Note that this Cut-List can be used for Joists, Longspans, or Joist Girders.


Note: The Tagged End is the Right End!!


Explanations

T.E.
Denotes the Tagged End of the joist. The tagged end of the joist is always the right end as you fill out the Cut-List sheet. Always decide and mark one end of a bay of joists the T.E. If the joist is horizontal on the framing plan, the right end is the tagged end. If the joist is vertical on the framing plan, the top is the tagged end. However, there are two exceptions: 1. Always designate the T.E. of a sloped joist at the 'highest' end, and 2. If there are symmetrical outside bays, either one can be marked as the T.E.
L
Denotes the Left end of the joist.
R
Denotes the Right end of the joist.
CONDITION CODE
Denotes the seat and end condition of the joist. Condition 'N' is used for a standard end, Condition 'T' is used when only the top chord angles are extended, and Condition 'F' is used for an extended end when both the top chord angles and the seat angles are extended.
BD
Denotes the seat depth at the end of the joist. For sloped joists, all seat depths must be referenced at the centerline of steel or at the inside face of walls, whichever the case may be. Otherwise include sketches which will show where the seat depth is located.
QTY.
Denotes the number of pieces that can be made exactly the same.
TYPE
Denotes the joist, longspan, or joist girder designation. For a joist that requires a special design, put 'SP' behind the designation and provide a loading diagram with all loading and deflection requirements to design the member by.
TCX
Denotes the length that the two top chord angles extend beyond the bearing seat. For a sloped member, it must be given on the 'slope'.
EXACT BRG
Denotes the exact amount of bearing that the joist seat bears on steel or masonry. DO NOT PAD BEARING. Our detailing program adds a safety factor for this. On full depth extensions such as in Condition 'F', show the exact bearing dimension in the bearing column from the end of the extension to the inside edge of what the joist is actually bearing on. All joists have a minimum 4 inch standard seat length. On steel bearing, you can leave the bearing dimension blank if the exact bearing is less than or equal to 4 inches. Always give the exact bearing on walls or masonry conditions. Note: For joist bearing on joist girders, put (*) for bearing and note at bottom- Joist manufacturer to determine joist bearing for joist on girder.
H
Denotes the distance from the end of the bearing seat back to where the holes are located in the seat such as in Conditions 'N' and 'T'. Where a full depth extension is required such as in Condition 'F', the dimension would be taken from the end of the extension back to where the holes are located in the seat.
BCX CODE
Denotes a code which tells how the bottom chords are extended. A code must be given! The codes are as follows:
A=One angle is extended
B=Two angles are extended
C=No angles are extended
BCX
Denotes the distance that the bottom chord of the joist is to be held back from the end of the joist top chord. Even with a top chord extension, the dimension shown should be taken from the end of the extension. For a sloped member, it must be given on the 'slope'.
POINT TO POINT
Denotes the main span dimension of the member in feet and inches. For a sloped joist, this dimension is still given on the 'flat'. Three situations are as follows:
(Centerline to Centerline Steel) or
(Face of Wall to Face of Wall) or
(Centerline Steel to Face of Wall)
+X
Denotes the distance that the joist 'seat' extends past the centerline steel or face of wall. Do not include any TCX's. For a sloped member, it must be given on the 'flat'.
-X
Denotes the distance that the joist 'seat' cutsback from the centerline steel or face of wall. Do not include any TCX's. For a sloped member, it must be given on the 'flat'.
OVERALL LENGTH
Denotes the total length from end to end of the top chord angles. For a sloped member, it must be given on the 'slope'.
MARK
This the identification number or method of relating to the erector which member is which on the erection drawing. Typical marks are: J1, K4, L7, G10, JG4, etc.
REMARKS
This area is for any special comments about the joist, such as slopes, design loads, or special camber.
PAINT
Circle the paint color at the top of the page. The choices are gray which is our standard or red.
STANDARD HOLES
The standard holes and gages are given below. If these are different for your situation, then it must be marked accordingly.
K or H Joists: 13/16 x 1 1/16 inch Slotted Holes with a 3 1/2" gage
LH or DLH Joists: 13/16 x 1 1/2 inch Slotted Holes with a 3 1/2" gage
Joist Girders: 13/16 x 1 1/2 inch Slotted Holes with a 4" gage

**********************

Please provide a joist framing plan with sections for LH, DLH, Joist Girders, sloped joists, uplift, etc., for coordination for design, details, and bridging.

Note: Not all of this information is required to build a joist, but if given, will allow a final check of dimensions to make sure that the overall length adds up from these given dimensions.

Where joists are used at hip and valley conditions, there must be a shim provided by the structural fabricator to allow the joists a level surface to bear on. Joists will be sloped in the direction of span only and a shim must be of sufficient size to accomodate proper bearing. Hancock will not skew cut joist ends.
