RE: Flex-C Trac

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Yes, that’s what my conclusion was also after looking at photos on their website.  I am detailing as continuous angle ledgers.  Even if it wasn’t the flexible track a typical track section wouldn’t calc out anyway.  I can see why the architect was interested in it, but he doesn’t understand what is required at a ledger.  Thanks for the reply.

I have used as top & bottom track only. Because the flanges are cut up  so much I would not use it for your situation. Depending on the loads I would use an angle or channel section.
