Truss Concrete Connection

Hello,

I am doing some remodeling with ICF and seems I cannot find a straight answer.
If there are any experts here, my question is, what do you use to anchor down the trusses/roof into fresh poured concrete?

That sort of thing is typically specified by the engineer. These get embedded in the concrete. Whether they would work in your situation, it's impossible for me to say.

Thanks, but this is for masonry and not embedded in concrete.

LTA Lateral Truss Anchor is the way to go. I will add one on every rafter and lay a small rebar on top of these notches, connecting the horizontal rebar with it. If the wind then really want to pull it out, I think the wood connected to the screws will fail first.
