RE: Specification of Cee's and Zee's

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The AIA Masterspec says on the section cover sheet (Feb 94 -ASC and SC
Library), and I quote.

"This section does not include cold-formed metal specialty applications,
such as "Unistrut" slotted framing, Z- or C-shaped purlin or girt
components, or stainless-steel, cold-formed framing.  Also excluded are
interior nonload-bearing, steel-stud and gypsum board assemblies that
belong in Division 9."

If I am misunderstanding this, please let me know.

I'm not sure what your referring to when you say that AIA masterspec
says that Cee' and Zee's are not covered under Section 05400.
The only things that this section is not applicable to (not including
specific exceptions), in regards to light gage cold formed steel, are:

	1. Division 5 Section "Metal Fabrications" for masonry shelf
angles and
	2. Division 6 Section "Rough Carpentry" for subflooring, wall
sheathing, or roof sheathing using wood-based structural-use 	
panels, particleboard, fibrous-felted board, and foam-plastic sheathing.
	3. Division 9 Section "Gypsum Board Assemblies" for interior
non-load-bearing metal-stud framing and ceiling-suspension 	
	4. Division 9 Section "Gypsum Board Shaft-Wall Assemblies" for
non-load-bearing, metal-stud-framed, shaft-wall 	     assemblies.

Otherwise this is exactly the section that you should specify.

I am putting cold formed Cee's on a conventional steel framed building.
Does anybody have suggestions as to what CSI section to place the Cee's
and Zee's under.  I do NOT have a prefab metal building so section 13120
is not completely applicable, and the AIA masterspec says that Cee and
Zee components are not considered under section 05400 Cold Formed metal
framing.  I want the steel erector to install the cold formed purlins
and girts when they erect the hot formed structural steel under section
05120.  How has this been handled in the past.  Are there any good
references on how to specify these?
