Re: Deck rail

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Tarek -

My interpretation is that the rail is required to take 20plf
and a 200lbf concentrated load located so as to generate maximum
stress.  Think person falling against the rail (200#) versus a
bunch of people already leaning against it (20 plf), although the
code does not require these to be concurrently applied.
