Re: Steel beam grade?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Also, many times the fabricator will "chalk" mark the size of the beam
(W14x22 or whatever) on the beam for use in their shop.  They will also
usually end up putting a "chalk" mark that indicates the beam mark (to
correspond to the shop drawings).
