Cabinets/Retail Fixtures Lateral Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
 
In regards to the  UBC vs. IBC/ASCE 7 for lateral nonstructural component design, does anyone know why the ASCE 7-02 (Table 9.6.2.2) omitted the exception of only having to design cabinets over 6'?  Are there any other code sections that outlines the geometric requirements of what needs to be analyzed for overturning?
