|5 feet or more, but not more than one-fourth |
the height of construction
|Barrier and covered walkway|
|5 feet or more, but between one-fourth and |
one-half the height of construction
|5 feet or more, but exceeding one-half the |
height of construction
For SI: 1 foot = 304.8 mm.
Barriers shall be designed to resist loads required in Chapter 16 of the International Building Code unless constructed as follows:
Covered walkways shall have a clear height of not less than 8 feet (2438 mm) as measured from the floor surface to the canopy overhead. Adequate lighting shall be provided at all times. Covered walkways shall be designed to support all imposed loads. The design live load shall be not less than 150 psf (7.2 kN/m2) for the entire structure.
Exception: Roofs and supporting structures of covered walkways for new, light-frame construction not exceeding two stories above grade plane are permitted to be designed for a live load of 75 psf (3.6 kN/m2) or the loads imposed on them, whichever is greater. In lieu of such designs, the roof and supporting structure of a covered walkway are permitted to be constructed as follows:
Standpipes shall be installed in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 9 of the International Building Code.
Exception: Standpipes shall be either temporary or permanent in nature, and with or without a water supply, provided that such standpipes conform to the requirements of Section 905 of the International Building Code as to capacity, outlets and materials.
