RE: Arena Guardrail Deflections

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

In Canada, for locations of assembly/egress, horiz load >= 206 plf and vert load >= 102plf.


In “normal” circumstances the horiz load need only be 52plf or point load of 225lbf.

Under the IBC,
you would need to check the top rail for a 200# load in any direction.

I take this to mean literally "any" direction, including upward and also parallel to the top rail.  Lengthwise, with a continuous top rail, the 200# load would be distributed among several posts, meaning that the posts could be weaker in this direction.  Am I thinking right?
