Re: Steel joist designation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Roger,

My joists span 54'-6", which appears to fall within the range noted on your
post. Do you have any information concerning the capacity of the joists? Any
help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Domenic
