It is now possible to generate tables that calculate maximum roof deck loads according to the specific needs of your project, directly from Canam-Buildings’ website.

The changes made to the online tool now allow users to:

  • Display various spans maximum loads at the same time by selecting the generate load tables option
  • Select the start span and span increment to generate custom tables
  • Select deflection criteria (L/180, L/240, L/360), as well as personalized bearing surfaces (exterior and interior)
  • Generate PDF files
