Re: Member sizes for joists

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Please clarify your request. If you are specifying steel joists, why is your
client ordering the steel? The joint manufacturer should be determining this. 

As far as specific member sizes, they vary depending on your conditions. Most
chords are double 2X2 angles with a 1" gap in between, however the thickness
can vary.
