NOTES: PowerBox8LT (5-5/8") Gravity – 22 Gage

Florida - 3000psi

  1. PRODUCT NAME (PATENT NO. 6367209);

    PREFORMED POWERS STEEL LINTEL SHALL BE GALVANIZED COIL STEEL AS MANUFACTURED BY POWERS STEEL AND WIRE PRODUCTS, INC. STEEL GRADE SHALL BE ASTM A570 GRADE C (FY= 40 ksi).

    NOTE: DEFORMATIONS DO NOT EFFECT STRUCTURAL CAPACITY.

    FOR SPANS LESS THAN 16'-0" BOX LINTELS TO BE 20 GA. FOR SPANS GREATER THAN OR EQUAL TO 16'-0" BOX LINTELS TO BE 16 GA.
  2. SHORE LINTELS AS REQUIRED TO COMPENSATE FOR DEAD LOAD DEFLECTION ON NON-CURED MASONRY GROUT. ALL LINTELS GREATER THAN 18'-0" ARE BUILT WITH 1/2" CAMBER.
  3. LINTEL TO BE USED WITH BRICK OR CONCRETE MASONRY UNITS HAVING MINIMUM f'm AS SHOWN.
  4. STEEL SURFACES IN CONTACT WITH GROUT AND/OR MORTAR SHALL BE UNPAINTED AND FREE OF MATERIAL THAT MIGHT INHIBIT BOND.
  5. DESIGN BEARING OF POWERS STEEL LINTELS IS 8" FOR ALL LINTELS GREATER THAN 18'-0" IN SPAN OR GREATER THAN 32" IN DEPTH. ALL OTHER LINTELS REQUIRE A MINIMUM OF 4" BEARING PER THE STANDARD AND FLORIDA BUILDING CODES.
  6. f'm = 1500 psi. MASONRY UNITS SHALL CONFORM TO ASTM C90, GRADE N.
  7. GROUT = 3,000 psi. SLUMP RANGE: 8" TO 11". ROD OR VIBRATE GROUT ADEQUATELY TO ENSURE CONSOLIDATION OF GROUT (NO AIR POCKETS). GROUT SHALL COMPLY WITH ASTM C476-83 AND BE EITHER COARSE OR FINE GROUT.
  8. MORTAR: TYPE "S" OR TYPE "M" 1800 psi.
  9. TOP REINFORCING OR TOP OF WALL REINFORCING, IS REQUIRED BY CODES TO PROVIDE A CONTINUOUS TIE AROUND A STRUCTURE AND TO PROVIDE FOR UPLIFT RESISTANCE AT LINTELS.
  10. ATTACHMENTS TO TOP OF WALL PER ARCHITECTURAL AND/OR ENGINEERING DRAWINGS.
  11. LIMITATIONS:

    THE LINTELS SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ALLOWABLE DESIGN LOADS AND SPANS SHOWN IN THIS REPORT.

    THE LINTELS SHALL NOT BE USED IN A FIRE RESISTANCE RATED ASSEMBLY UNLESS A TEST REPORT DOCUMENTING FIRE RESISTANCE IS SUBMITTED TO THE BUILDING OFFICIAL.

    A PROPER BARRIER IS REQUIRED WHEN USING CORROSIVE LUMBER PRODUCTS IN CONTACT WITH THE STEEL LINTELS. A PROPER BARRIER WOULD BE A POLYETHYLENE BARRIER WITH A 10 MIL THICKNESS OR TO MAINTAIN A MIN. 1/4" SPACING BETWEEN THE CORROSIVE LUMBER AND STEEL LINTEL.

    NOT FOR USE IN THE HVHZ IN MIAMI OR BROWARD COUNTIES AT THIS TIME. MIAMI DADE COMPLIANCE IS BEING SOUGHT.
  12. DEFLECTION LIMITS ARE SET TO L/600 FOR ALL LOADS SHOWN ABOVE THE DARKENED SOLID LINE. DEFLECTION LIMITS ARE SET TO L/360 [LIVE LOAD] AND L/240 [DEAD + LIVE LOAD] FOR ALL LOADS SHOWN BELOW DARKENED SOLID LINE.
  13. ALL LOADS SHOWN IN TABLES ARE SUPERIMPOSED LOADS. TABLES ARE DATED 3/2012 AND CLEARLY INDICATE SUPERIMPOSED LOADS.
  1. #5 REINFORCING BAR (GRADE 40) IS TO SET APPROX. 1-1/2" FROM TOP OF ALL LINTEL DESIGNS AND IN SOME CASES THE BOTTOM OF LINTEL AS SHOWN ON LOAD TABLES. TOP HORIZONTAL REINFORCEMENT IS TO BE A CONTINUOUS TIE AS NOTED IN NOTE #9. IN THE CASE THAT THE LINTEL IS NOT WITHIN A COMPOSITE BOND BEAM SYSTEM, TOP HORIZONTAL REINFORCEMENT IS TO EXTEND 2'-0" PAST INSIDE OF JAMBS.
