Cold Formed Steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a job where cold-formed steel girts were used. The girts are a channel shape 3"x3" x0.074. The web and flanges are curved rather than flat, approximately 5/16" out of flat from one corner to the other. My customer is claiming that the wall cladding cannot be properly installed and I agree with him. I checked the North American Specification for Cold Rolled Steel 2001 but it does not contain any information on tolerances. Does anybody out there have any information on acceptable tolerances? TIA
