RE: Steel Joist Seat Height

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've had Vulcraft engineers tell me they wanted the low end 5.5" tall for
sloped joists I am laying out now.  Different than what is shown in the
catalog.  They will give you what you spec.  Call and ask what they can

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?
