Calculate Load Capacity

Postby TY (guest) » Thu Oct 04, 2007 1:12 am

I need to quote the proper load capacity for an attic storage area. There are walk ways underneath the storage area and we need to put up a maximum capacity sign. The dimensions of the attic/storage are 60' long by 24' wide by 7 1/2' high. The support flooring is 1' thick floors that are 4x4's with plywood covering. There is standard cross beams below the flooring and every 8 ft. there is a beam from the floor to the attic. Can anyone help me figure this out.

It depends more on those "standard beams" and posts than the floor. It also depends on the lumber quality.

It is not just a conversion, and should probably be reviewed by an engineer.
