Re: Equipment Loads vs Live Loads

Gentlemen

Within the equipment foot print, probably not because equipment load itself is quite significant & any extra live loads (over & above this) would be something as overlods unnecessarily.

George,

	The answer to your question is "Probably not" unless it is common to
have workers on top of it for servicing.  You might, however, want to
consider where you set components of this equipment while it is being
installed or dismantled for repair, etc.
