Finish… SUPERSPEED ® gray paint. Installation… Distribute the total load evenly about the centerline to avoid an eccentric loading condition. • Multiple members must be fastened together by means other than the connector, to act as a single unit. • For MTHTF2 and MTHTF2N, a minimum 2 x 6 vertical member is required. For MTHTF2-2 and MTHTF2-2N, a minimum of 2 x 8 vertical member is required. • Bottom cord of header member must be a minimum of a 2 x 6.
