SJI to Host Webinar on "Bridging-How it Works and What to Work Around" on August 15, 2018

August 8, 2018

FLORENCE, SC, August 8, 2018 - Steel joists provide excellent economy for vertical, in-plane loads. The lateral support bracing system — bridging — is key to the performance of a steel joist. This webinar, which will be held on August 15, 2018 at 3:00 pm EDT, will explore steel joist bridging from two perspectives. First, the types, roles, forces and specification criteria — “how it works.” And second, the challenges, potential conflicts, and solutions for the bridging layout and installation — “what to work around.” 1.5 PDHs are available. 

The learning objectives include:

  • The types and roles of bridging will be covered.
  • The governing criteria for the bridging spacing and sizing will be reviewed.
  • The connection details and options will be explored, both the drawing details and the realities of field installation.
  • A number of potential conflicts and resolutions for bridging locations will be discused, such as working around sprinkler systems.
