Subject: Metal Deck "18 GA HSB-36 Deck"?
I am working for a telecom company and the company is adding some electrical
equipments on top of an existing steel famed building roof. I am doing the
design check on this structure to see if it can take the additional loading.
I encountered this note "18 GA HSB-36 Deck" in the existing roof frame
drawing. Anyone knows what it means? From the drawing, the deck spans
10'-12'. I would like to know about this deck: weight per square foot, how
much uniform distributed load it can take. Or anyone knows where or which
reference I can get this information.
Thank you very much in advance!
