    AWC Span Tables

    Do you sometimes need to spot check floor joists or roof rafters that may be over-spanned? Or have you ever needed to inspect the spans of a wood species not listed in the prescriptive code book tables? AWC’s Span Tables for Joists and Rafters can be downloaded for free at http://www.awc.org/codes-standards/spantables, where you will also find a helpful tutorial for their correct use. These span tables, referenced in the IBC and IRC, cover all species and grades of commercially available lumber and include a commentary in the appendix. And a reminder: spans can also be checked using AWC’s web-based span calculator, or AWC’s free app for your mobile device. See all of AWC’s calculators and apps here: http://www.awc.org/codes-standards/calculators-software.
