Notes:

  1. Section properties and allowable loads were computed in accordance with the 2007 edition of the North American Specification For Design Of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members.
  2. Section properties are for one foot of panel width.
  3. Allowable loads are based on uniform span lengths and Fy = 50 ksi.
  4. The weight of the panel has not been deducted from the allowable loads.
  5. Please contact manufacturer or manufacturer’s website for most current allowable wind uplift loads.
