Ceiling Lateral Bracing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I am trying to find out if lateral bracing and compression struts are required for suspended acoustical ceilings in seismic zone 1 (one). In the UBC 97, section 1632 and the referenced table 16-O, line F, the footnote 3 indicates that values given are for zones 2,3, and 4. The code does not address if any bracing  should be provided for zone 1?

Thank You for you help.
