Re: Deck Support

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you have a none structural fill,
Weld small double angles to the top of the and use them to stiffin
your deck. Make the angles small so they can fit within the fill
space. Weld he cantilever end of the angles to a perpendiclar closure
angle placed at the end of the deck. Space the double angles as
required.

If you have structural concrete you can avoid the angles above by
reinforceing the concrete for the short overhang.

On the edge of the building there is 2 feet from the column centerline
to the outside face of brick.  My problem is supporting the deck.  The
deck, 2" composite with 5 1/2" slab) will cantilever in the direction
of its span with no problem but support in the other direction is a
problem.  Thanks in advance for any ideas.</FONT></P>
