Support Beam technical data lists maximum allowable uniform load and mid span deﬂection at a range of spans. Together with this data we have designated a loading to span which will give a deﬂection ratio of 1/200 of the span. This will give a recognized practical beam deﬂection to minimize sagging of the beam under load.
Support Column technical data lists maximum lateral loading at a range on unbraced heights.
