RE: T&G roof diaphragms

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have never heard that it is not but the loads will be very low, about 50
plf.  Unless it is a bath room for a park, put PW over the T & G.

Subject: T&G roof diaphragms

Does anyone have any information as to whether T&G wood diaphragms are
accepted in the state of California? Our client has requested 2x6 T&G
spanning 4ft. Our project is located in the state of California, seismic
zone 4.

Any information anyone has is greatly appreciated.
