Guardrail deflection

Recommended Posts

Yes, I had seen the article and I just re-read it and the JLC article but I didn't see, maybe because I'm blind, any discussion on criteria of what constitutes failure to comply with the code requirement of 200#.

My question is more concerned with how much deflection is acceptable? And what if any sources can I cite? The code is not clear. It justs says resist. But what does that mean? Something deflecting is resisting. It fails to resist when it falls over.
