RE: Tennis court LL

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

The highest LL for residential is 40 psf, however for non-residential roofs used for roof gardens or assembly purposes you should use 100 psf. 


I guess the next question is, what is under the tennis court?

My inclination would be to use 100 psf.  It does a huge expense, and you can sleep easier.

What would be an appropriate live load to use on an elevated concrete tennis court slab for private, single family home use? It will be built on a hillside, so there won't be any heavy equipment, only few people playing. I'm also assuming that the deck can be used for private parties.
