Re: TJ50 joists

I think that's "TrusJoist," wood joists in other words, not steel. Much more common on the west coast and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see them used in the Great White North as well.

I have a 1970 (?) school that has a mezzanine framed with 22 inch deep
TJ50 joists at 24" oc. The joists span 20 feet. Does anyone have a load table for this joist? TIA.
