Steel lintel beam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Because the roof framing provides lateral bracing for the lintel, I intended
to suggest that a note be placed on the plan, such as "roof joists and deck
must be fully installed prior to applying masonry to lintel."

But then I got to thinking, the roof joists and (partial) deck are load to
the lintel prior to the diaphragm being fully installed.  Is it necessary to
dictate temporary bracing?
