Existing Double-Tee floor designed for 80 psf, New File load of 120 psf would be applied.

My solutions were either one of these:

  1. Use rigid steel frame (6" channels) underneath the file cabinet extend from the sides, to provide more area to distribute the load.
  2. Contact the manufacturer to do strengthening for the double-Tee

Any other choices
