Notes:

  1. The above loads were derived from uplist tests done in accordance with ASTM E-1592.
  2. Test results are highlighted.
  3. All values are interpolated from tests performed at spans of 2′-6″, 5’-0” and 7’-0”.
  4. Design Load contains a 2.00 factor of safety.
  5. ** indicates insufficient data.
  6. These values do not consider fastener pullout or pullover, clip attachment must be designed separately.
  7. The use of any accessories including but not limited to clips, fasteners, and support plates (eave, backup, rake, etc.) other than those provided by the manufacturer may damage panels, void all warranties and will void all engineering data.
  8. This material is subject to change without notice.  Please contact Metl-Span for most current data.
