Floor load

Floor Load describes the capacity of a floor to bear weight and is usually measured in kilograms per square meter. A dead or static load is the permanent or constant weight that is supported – the weight of the structure itself, carpet, raised floor and furniture, equipment and decorations such as plants or sculptures. Live or dynamic loads are loads that change over time, including people, vehicles, vibration, snow, boxes or office supplies. Building codes often specify “load factors” for floors, staircases, etc., that are multiples (e.g., 1.2) of the dead and live loads.
