Pryda Fascia Supports are used to connect the overhangs of rafters or trusses to fascias or fascia ledgers so that a verandah or pergola can be adequately supported from the fascia line.
Verandahs and pergolas usually support only a lightweight roofing or shade cloth, but occasionally they also support or resist: (a) the weight of a worker and materials or tools carried (total design load = 110 kg). (b) forces due to the uplift effect of wind – which can also be the equivalent of hundreds of kilograms, depending on the degree of exposure of the site and roof area supported.
By comparison, the design strength of two 2.8mm nails into green softwood (such as Oregon) is only the equivalent of 44kg (short term loading). Pryda Fascia Supports overcome this problem by: Providing a strong fascia to rafter or truss connection, designed in accordance with AS1720.1 Timber Structures; Meeting strength requirements for all common applications; Being fast and easy to install with five Ajax M12 or 1/2 inch bolts, nuts and washers. Nail holes in the support facilitate preliminary fixing for positioning.
Reinforces roof truss or rafter overhang to fascia joints to support a carport or pergola.
