RE: code require column impact protection in warehouse?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thanks Rick.  This is a good starting point.  Item 10 Vehicle barriers in
table refers to section 311.2.3.5 which talks about barriers in parking
garages where there are 5 foot drop offs.

The storage rack code requires rack columns to be designed for half stresses
unless they are protected against collision and I was asked if there is a
specific requirement for building columns in a warehouse.

1997 UBC, Table 16-B, Footnote 10, requires that vehicle barriers be
designed for a lateral load of 6000 pounds.  If you have a building in
which fork lifts are motoring around, it would be prudent to provide
vehicle barriers for building columns.
