OS2 Structural Safety



Intent 1:

To limit the probability of shear failure, anchor withdrawal or inadequate distribution of lateral and wind-uplift loads, which could lead to the displacement of wood-frame roof systems under wind-uplift loads.

This is to limit the probability of compromised structural integrity, which could lead to:

  • structural failure of the roof, or
  • the excessive deformation, displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to deterioration, which could lead to further compromised structural integrity.

This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.
