Deck rail

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Table 16-B of the CBC calls for a 20 plf horiz load applied at the top of
a residential deck guard rail. It also calls for a 200# concentrated load on
the completed handrail. Is the 200# load meant for a section/run
of rail, or is it per support?
