RE: Rolling Files

Remember, also, that they run on rails, so the load is concentrated as a
line load. The number of rails and their spacing needs to come from the
manufacturer. In a perfect world the rails are recessed in the floor which
can screw up your structural system, as if the 300 psf wasn't enough.
Otherwise, the architect's got to ramp up to the deck of the file system and
you know how testy, they can get when they have to work. -j

Morning.

 

Does anyone have an idea what to use for "rolling files" live load?  I have
a # of 14kPa (300psf+/-).

 

"Rolling files" are such as moveable library files and book stands.
Possibly moveable warehouse storage shelving .?

 

TIA
