Upright Load Table
This table gives an indication only of the safe load, in lbs., that may be carried between the above restraints by single Schedule 40 pipe, 30000 PSI, when used as uprights. Loads listed under ‘A’ columns refer to those loads that are obtainable according to schematic ‘B’. Schematic ‘B’ details a racking system that is mechanically affixed to the surface on which it stands, whereas Schematic ‘A’ details a free-standing racking system. Recommended screw torque: 24 lbs./ft.
