re: hollow core long span

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Rich,
Talk with your local hollow core panels mfr, deflection becomes a big issue and they do camber them usually at the plant. We have looked through the tables, found panels that work per the table no problem, then talked with the mfr who recommended a deeper panel because the deflection and camber get to be problematic. A lot of times this info is not in their tables.
