RE: Request for Joist Load Table

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Good luck. This is not an "official" SJI joist designation. In the past, many joist manufacturers often times made their own joists and joist designations. Try to find a tag on the joist indicating the manufacturer. Many may no longer be in business. In the 1970's Armco made a DH joist. Armco joists had the cold formed "hat" section and fusion welded chords on their short span joists.

I would try to find an old steel fabricator that did not throw things out. They may have an old catalogue.

If you can't do anything else, you wil have to measure everything and run the capacities for your self. The wild card is the steel strength. It could be A36 or it could be Grade 50. It was customary to design joists as simple trusses with pinned connections.

Does anyone have a load table for "18-D-12" joist that can be emailed to me?

Thank you
