While we are on the subject of steel floor supports:

I am working on a similar project, a multi-leveled equipment mezzanine
with checkered plate flooring.

What is the general consensus regarding allowable deflection of the

both the UBC and SBC deflection criteria in Chapter 16 are oriented
toward roof deflections with ceilings.
