Re: 1987 bar joist girder

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I believe that this is still the current way to designate a joist girder.  a 32G 6N 11.6k is a 32" deep joist girder with 6 evenly spaced point loads of 11.6kips.  The Steel Joist Institute's Standard specification Section 1006 outlines how to specify joist girders.  I get my information from the New Columbia Joist Company (  They should have something to help you on their website.

Subject: 1987 bar joist girder

I am looking for the specs for a bar joist girder constructed in 1987. It is listed on the plan as 32 G 6N 11.6K

Where is a good source for this type of information?
