RE: Health Club Floor Load

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

Perhaps contact vendors of health club equipment.  Hmmm, I'm seeing a field trip to a health club for educational purposes.  Those stands that they stack all the barbells on have got to have some pretty good point loads.  Vibrations with all those rhythmic cross-country ski things is also a consideration.

Subject: Health Club Floor Load


Does anyone know of a reference that suggests a live load for health club floors? I see gymnasiums listed in IBC but I am thinking free weight areas may warrant a larger load. I would like to find a reference I can point to vs. a rational determination only.


Please let me know if you know of any written standards for this.
