Hanger Load Increase

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I believe there is a special requirement for loads suspended from hangers (platforms, etc.)  I seem to remember where hangers are to be designed for 125%-150% of the load.  Do you know which code references this increase (ASCE, AISC, IBC)? 
Any information would be helpful -- and thanks in advance!
