MACOMBER E STEEL JOISTS e STEEL JOISTS e STEEL JOISTS @ STEEL JOISTS « V-BEAM SERIES CATALOG vB Deere ieee THE MACOMBER V-BEAM MacoMBER VSECTION TOP cHoRD NAILIN GROOVE A DEPENDABLE JOIST FROM A RELIABLE MANUFACTURER ‘The Macomber V-BEAM is the preduct of more than forty years of leadership in the steel building fled. V-BEAMS are ‘engineered to provide you with unexcelled performance and quality. The performance and design of this member is verified by the results of more than a thousand load tests fn full size joists, conducted since 1950 in the V-BEAM development sequence, In addition, the success of hundreds ‘of thousands of V.BEAMS on the job lends proof to our claims for this product. SUGGESTED SPECIFICATION Steel joists shall be designed to support the live and dead Toads shown on the crawings and shall have factor of safety and live load deflections as follows: Root Joists Factor of safety 1.65, Maximum live load deflection 1/360 - 1/240 oF 1/180 of span, Floor Joists Factor of safety 1.65, Maximum live load deflection 1/360 of span. See footnotes of V-BEAM load table for limitations on use ‘of this member a8 floor jols. ‘The clear span of all joists shall not exceed 550 times the top chord radius of gyration about the vertical axis. A-SECTION BEARING PLATE ‘The Macomber V-BEAM is avallable In depths trom 8” to 28" and in spans to 56. The V-BEAM is made with cold fallformed chords. The Macomber V-Section is utilized as the top chord and a Macomber B-Section serves as. the bottom chord, providing the joist with unusual. lateral stability. The chords are proportioned in accordance with the latest AIS! specifications, It wil be to your advantage to check on the V-BEAM for use in your next project, i's @ dependable joist. For information, help, or 2 quotation on your needs, call or write to the Macomber representative nearest you. Paint Joists and accessories shall be painted one shop coat of ‘manufacturer's standard. protective paint which can be feadlly field painted in exposed areas without bleeding through. Inspection and Test Reports ‘The jelst manufacturer must provide resident inspection of his production by a nationally recognized Independent test: ing laboratory, in addition to the product inspection done by his own forces. The manufacturer must submit, with his approval drawings, representative certified reports by such Independent testing laboratory covering tests of his joists, a proot of the performance and quality of workmanship of is products. If the manufacturer does not have resident testing labora: tory inspectors in his plant, he may provide independent testing laboratory inspection of this specific project continu: cusly during manufacture; and make load tests, supervises by that testing laboratory, of one out of every 50 joists (including one joist of each different top chord size and depth) to prove compliance with the safety factor and live load deflection requirements of this specification, Bridging Bridging shall be horizontal angles or other shapes, attached to the chords by welding or other mechanical means, The Slenderness ratio of the bridging between joists shall not exceed 300. The slendemess ratio of the joist top chord between bridging lines shall not exceed 150. The slender- ness ratio of the bottom chord between bridging points shall not exceed 150 for floor joists or 300 for roof joists, Erection Joists shall be carefully handled to prevent damage. Joists shall be accurately spaced, anchored, and completely bridged prior to the application of construction leads, Deftections The V-BEAM load table shows maximum live loads for de flection limits of 1/360 and 1/240 of the span.

This member embodies the experience gained since 1950 when Macomber introduced the original \V-BEAM to the market. Development of the V-BEAM Is based on information from the great number of tests performed on full sized members, since that date. ‘The V-BEAM top chord, consisting of the V-Section, has been in constant use on all Macomber products since 1946. Test data and engineering information on this section support its usage. The 8-Section making Up the bottom chord has been in use since 1960 in the Macomber “‘S” series joists, and more recently in the J & H series joists. The information gathered justifies its use in the V-BEAM, ‘The components of the V-8EAM — chords, bearing plates, end bars and web system — lend themselves admirably to modern fabricating standards and Macomber's up-to-date fabricating facilities. In preparing the load tables, it was recognized that under some conditions, the deflection of a member ‘governs its design. To simplify the selection of V-BEAMS under these conditions, additional loads, in color, hhave been incorporated listing the live load carrying capacities for each joist size and span, for limiting deflections of 1/360 and 1/240 of the span.
