You had me confused for a while describing the system as a "ceiling." As
such, I was thinking of Tectum ceiling panels, but I didn't have anything in
my files on them, at least I couldn't find anything. Then I started
wondering if you were talking about gypsum concrete and looked in the Gypsum
concrete section of my files and BINGO!
V-200 bulb tees, manufactured by Conners Steel, H. K. Porter Company.
1.88-inches high, 2.90 lbs/ft, Ixx = .497 in^4, Sxx = .473. From Gold Bond
brochure of January, 1969.
The brochure has maximum clear span tables for LL from 20 psf to 55 psf based
on stress and deflection (L/240 and L/360). Let me know what information you
Hope this helps.
