I'm having trouble finding some information. I need to know how far 2X6 T&G pine decking (1200000 modulus) will span when laid flat, 4ft. O.C. at 100psf load, staggered layout, with L/240 deflection. I can only find span tables for joists, beams, and girders. I can find tables for decking but only for 6ft. O.C. and larger, nothing for 4ft.
The reasonable span depends on the application. If it is for a largely dead load like a live ( ) roof, bounciness is mostly irrelevant. If it is for a purely live traffic load, then bounce is relevant, even if deflection is okay.
WHAT is your favorite color? Blue, no yellow, ahhhhhhh! Tiny ad:
