RE: Office floor LL

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mark-
Remember that organizations that have significant amount of files (HR
departments are notorious for this) often need to go to high density files
to accommodate the growth, particularly wen the square foot cost of space is
high.  Some of these systems can go as high as 250 psf.  About 6 months ago
I did such a system.  Luckily the original floor design was 80 psf LL plus
20 psf partition plus the UBC 2000 lb. Concentrated load on an area 2-1/2
feet square and the original DL had been over estimated.  By appropriate
layout, it was made to work but used most of the available capacity.
