PS 100 – Steel Channel (1-5/8″ x 3-1/4″ x 12 ga.)
* Bearing load may govern capacity.
For concentrated load at center of span, divide uniform load by 2 and multiply corresponding deflection by 0.8. This load table is based on a solid channel section.
Loads include weight of channel, which must be deducted.
Loads must be multiplied by the applicable unbraced factor from page 42.
For Pierced Channels, reduce beam load values as follows: PS-100-EH – 15%, PS-100-S – 15%. PS-100-H – 10%, PS-100-KO6 – 5%
Column loads are for allowable axial loads and must be reduced for eccentric loading.
Resistance to Slip – 1,500 lbs. per bolt when 1/2″ PS NS channel nuts are used.
Pull Out Strength – 2,000 lbs. per bolt when 1/2″ PS NS channel nuts are used.
