Beam Attachment to Column

Steel I-Beam as the Main Beam… Steel Column under the Main Beam.

Column cap is secured by folding the tabs around the underside of the I-Beam. No bolts or other means of fastening.

Is this Ok???

Looking for a Code reference either way…


This is the way we used to do it. The weight of the floor will hold it in place. The load path should be strictly vertical there and if the floor or beam is going to move enough horizontally to potentially move the post, you have other problems, in my opinion of course.

100% legit! yup it’s ok.

Lots of them like that.
