Re: metal bld'g. cable cross bracing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
One thing is going for the metal industry is that the buildings are light.
Another fact is that the Metal builidng Lobbyist manage to get into the
code a way of allowing tension bracing for one and two story building.
Section 2213.8.5 is the key in allowing metal buildings to be what they are.
Frankly it has always bothered me too.
