The MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE CATWALK LOADS and freespans for catwalks and catwalks with full floor walkways are listed in these US CUSTOMARY UNITS charts. The loads are the total weight of the conveyor plugged with grain.

It is not necessary to subtract personnel or snow load from these values.

These loads do not include concentrated loads located in the mid span of the catwalk. If there is a concentrated load on the catwalk, contact Brownie Systems for assistance selecting the appropriate catwalk.

The maximum allowable loads listed in these METRIC UNITS charts are the total weight of the conveyor plugged with grain.
