There are a number of factors affecting floor use. Users have varying expectations regarding floor “behavior”. The requirements presented below will make it easier to design the floor for maximum user satisfaction:
Careful dry storage on building site, maintaining minimum support depths, clean sheathing assembly, as well as accurate performance of all attachments (nails, adhesive) are vital for achieving the desired outcome.
Beams are not stable until completely assembled and carry no loads until completely stiffened and covered with sheathing.
Avoid unexpected situations by following the instructions given below:
Assembly dos and dont's:
1. Do not cut holes with a diameter larger than 3.5 cm closer than 2.5 cm to the support.
2. Holes must not be too large. Do not damage beam flanges.
3. Do not hit beam flanges with a hammer, as you might damage them.
4. Do not notch or cut flanges.
5. Do not cut out beam flanges to avoid damage.
6. Do not hammer closer than 5 cm to the end of the beam.
7. Do not cut the upper beam flange beyond the inner edge of the support.
8. Do not support the beam on the web.
9. Reinforcement to the full height of the girder beyond the slings is required.
10. Reinforcement to the full height beyond slings, both in the beam and in the girder, is required.
11. Reinforcement should cover the entire girder.
12. Reinforcement to the full height beyond slings, both for the beam and for the girder, is required.
13.All slings must be aligned vertically, without slanting.
