  1. hello, the building i am remodeling" has a collateral load rating of 3 psf. it is your typical pre-fab metal warehouse. It has 12 guage 10" z purlins spanning 27.5' and they are spaced every 5'. is 377lbs hung from 6 purlin clamps covering 67 (120'' x 80")square feet too much weight? should i run strut perpendicular to the purlins and make the connections with thread rod in the middle so 2 purlins are supporting each connection? or should i scrap the hanging idea? probably wanting to hang a warehouse divider curtain as well.
