RE: Floor Deck LL

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ed,

It should be at the beginning of chapter 16 where they have definitions for
each. (i.e. balcony is cantilevered and deck is not). The loads are in table
16A, item 12 - residential Decks, Residential Balconies. For other
occupancies, you should use the same live load as that for the interior of
the building. Also, if the balcony/deck is used for exiting, you need to use
100 psf LL.

Hi All,

I read somewhere in Chapter 16,UBC 97, where the deck LL can be used as 40
PSF VS. 60 PSF for balconies.
Can anyone tell me where I can find that.

Thanks

Ed Najjarine
