Re: Steel Joist Seat Height

        I don't know how this is done in U.S.A. but in Canada you could have any joist seat height you wanted.  Each fabricator has his standards, of course; but all that means is the guys in the shop can fabricate it from memory using precut stock parts without having to follow a project specific drawing.

Subject: Steel Joist Seat Height

I need a sanity check on a 2:12 sloped LH joist seat height.  As I'm not really a joist guy I appreciate the help.  The Vulcraft catalog has the high end joist seat depth at 7".  But the low end seat depth is " 6" min.* ".
I'm assuming that the the seats depths will be the same at both ends, in this case 7".  Is this correct?
