Table R301.5 Minimum Uniformly Distributed Live Loads – Amend footnotes b, d and h to read as follows:

 

b. ‘Attics without storage’ are those where any one of the following conditions apply:

 

(i) the maximum clear height between joist and rafter is less than 42 inches, or where there are not two or more adjacent trusses with the same web configuration capable of containing a rectangle 42 inches high by 2 feet wide, or greater, located within the plane of the truss; or,

 

(ii) there is no attic access greater than the minimum access opening required by Section R807; or,

 

(iii) the ceiling joist or truss bottom chord pitch is greater than 2:12.

 

For ‘attics without storage,’ this live load need not be assumed to act concurrently with any other live load requirements.

 

g. For ‘attics with limited storage’ and constructed with trusses, this live load need be applied only to those portions of the bottom chord where there are two or more adjacent trusses with the same web configuration capable of containing a rectangle 42 inches high or greater by 2 feet wide or greater, located within the plane of the truss. The rectangle shall fit between the top of the bottom chord and the bottom of any other truss member.

 

h. Attic spaces meeting the minimum requirements of Sections R304 and R305 and served by a fixed stair or a doorway shall be designed to support the minimum live load specified for sleeping rooms.
