RE: Anybody Using SSMA Designations for Call-Outs on Light Gage Structures ?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't use the SSMA standard anymore because I get too many calls from
architects and contractors about it e.g. "What gauge are the studs?"

I suppose if I did a lot of light gauge work I would take the time to
add notes on the drawings that would explain everything.

Yes. I do. And I also show a "key" to the nomenclature on my "General 
Notes" sheet because even though the suppliers might be comfortable with

it, your typical contractor doesn't like to see anything that hasn't 
been around at least twenty years.
