RE: Handrail Loads vs Short Term

Check out 2006 IBC Section 1607.7.1.3, where design based on ASD using the loading specified in that section may use the 1/3-increase.  It's a nice allowance that has not been recognized before, but seems to make sense.

Subject: Handrail Loads vs Short Term

I've never used a 1.33 increase on handrail components, but have one that doesnt calc out without it. Can handrail loads be considered short term?
