LIMIT STATE DESIGN LOAD
Design Capacities for a Single High Load Easy Grip
|Joint group||Uplift Capacity (kN)|
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.
