Notes:

  1. The indicated spans are based on simple span joists.
  2. Minimum end bearing length is 1½”, spans in bold require web stiffeners at OSB end panel.
  3. Maximum spans are measured centerline to centerline of bearing and are based on uniformly loaded joists.
  4. Total Load deflection is limited to L/240.
  5. Live Load deflection is limited to L/480.
  6. The indicated spans are based on the Allowable Stress Design method as per NDS, ICC IBC/IRC code.
  7. The considered subfloor is a “20 oc APA rated panel” for joist’s spacing of 12″, 16″ and 19.2″ o.c. and is a “24 oc APA rated panel” for joist’s spacing of 24″ o.c. The subfloor must be glued as per APA Specification AFG-01 or ASTM D3498 and nailed as per NDS, ICC IBC/IRC code.
  8. Refer to appropriate sections of the Specifier Guide for installation guidelines and construction details.
  9. S = Limited inventory. Please contact your representative to determine quantities.

Notes:

  1. Strongbacks must be installed at mid-span to achieve the maximum spans indicated for the vibration criterion in section 9.23.4.3.(2) of the National Building Code of Canada (NBC). The 2×4’s and 2×6’s are considered to be in SPF #3/stud and the 2×8’s and 2×10’s, in SPF #1/#2.
  2. The spans are based on simple-span joists.
  3. The minimum bearing length is 1 ½”, spans values in bold indicate that web stiffeners are required at the OSB end panel.
  4. The maximum span is measured o.c. of bearings and is based on uniformly loaded joists.
  5. Dead load deflection is limited to L/360 and total load deflection is limited to L/240.
  6. Live load deflection is limited to L/360.
  7. Spans are based on limit states design and comply with NBC and CAN/CSA-O86 requirements.
  8. Refer to the appropriate sections of the Specifier Guide for installation guidelines and construction details.
  9. The considered subfloor is a standard 19/32″ plywood or 1F20 OSB for 12″, 16″ and 19.2″ o.c. spacing and standard 23/32″ plywood or 1F24 OSB for 24″ o.c. spacing and must be glued with adhesive per CAN/CGSB-71.26-M88 and nailed per NBC.
  10. S = Limited inventory. Please contact your representative to determine quantities.
