30" wide catwalk

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



Can anyone confirm that the minimum width of catwalk used in heavy industrial (i.e. for Bulk/Material handling conveyor system) has been changed from 24” to 30” wide? One of our independent checkers made comments regarding this change.


I checked with IBC 2000, 2003 and 2006 nothing mentioned about the change.
