Tech Note FC101-22: Design of Cold-Formed Steel Rim Track


Summary: Cold-formed steel floor, roof, soffit, and ceiling joists are widely used in commercial applications. End of the joist rim track is an important component of many floor/roof/ceiling/soffit systems used to transfer load from the joist to another component of the structure. This Technical Note provides an overview of different rim track applications and how each is designed.

Disclaimer: Designs cited herein are not intended to preclude the use of other materials, assemblies, structures or designs when these other designs demonstrate equivalent performance for the intended use. CFSEI documents are not intended to exclude the use and implementation of any other design or construction technique.
