Collateral ceiling load

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm reviewing a submittal from a pre-engineering metal building company for
a 200'x240' light manufacturing facility.  What's a reasonable ballpark
number for the collateral load from an automatic sprinkler system and
electrical lighting fixtures/conduit (no HVAC)? I couldn't find anything
specific in the controlling code (96 BOCA) or in the IBC.
