Anthony Forest Products has introduced a new Powerful Solutions™ tool, a lumber span calculator to help designers and specifiers with the transition to the new Southern Pine design values and span tables which were effective June 1, 2013.
This free Anthony Lumber Span Calculator calculates spans and compares spans of Southern Pine versus other species of lumber, using either the pre-June 1, 2013 spans or the new spans.
Simple drop down menus allow the user to input species, grade, member type, deflection limit, lumber spacing and loading conditions. Automatic defaults are set for the most common deflection limits, spacing and loading conditions when "member types" are changed. Clicking on the Grade/Span Comparison calculator bar will allow span comparisons between different grades of Southern Pine.
