SECTION 3117 - DESIGN LOADS

Patio covers shall be designed and constructed to sustain, within the stress limits of this code, all dead loads plus a minimum vertical live load of 10 pounds per square foot (0.48 kN/) except that snow loads shall be used where such snow loads exceed this minimum. Such covers shall be designed to resist the minimum horizontal wind loads set forth in this code, except that where less than 12 feet (3657 mm) high, the horizontal wind load shall be as indicated in Table A-31-A. In addition, they shall be designed to support a minimum wind uplift equal to the horizontal wind load acting vertical upward normal to the roof surface, except that for structures not more than 10 feet (3048 mm) above grade the uplift may be three fourths of the horizontal wind load. When enclosed with insect screening or plastic that is readily removable translucent or transparent plastic not more than 0.125 inch (3.2 mm) in thickness, wind loads shall be applied to the structure, assuming it is fully enclosed.
