FLOOR ASSEMBLY, FABRICATION & INSTALLATION
FLOOR SKID FABRICATION
While other manufacturers use two 2 x 6′s nailed together for the all-important base structure or floor skids of their buildings, we at Lark use only solid 4 x 6′s that are precision trimmed, tapered, and dadoed for our floor skids. When we require skids that are longer than our available timbers, we mortise the splice and make the connection using six 4″ galvanized lag bolts. This assures the uncompromising strength and durability of our buildings.
FLOOR FRAME ASSEMBLY
All of our floor joists are connected to the skids by being nailed and lag bolted at each dado to assure that the base of our buildings has superior wind uplift protection. On the skid ends, we not only double lag bolt our headers at a 45-degree angle to the skids, but we also hurricane clip them for additional holding power.
One of the most outstanding features of our Lark floor system is the way we connect our 23/32 treated plywood to our floor cross members. We don’t use nails that can back out and weaken the floor. We use only plated deck screws that give the floor more strength and rigidity than nails. When we place this 23/32 panel on 16” centers we are able to give you a floor loading of 125 P.S.F. The reason we use this floor loading is to ensure that the superstructure of the building is adequately supported and that the integrity and stability of the Unit is not compromised.
