This standard provides requirements for the structural design, contract documents, shop drawings, fabrication, and installation of cables for use as static structural elements for the support and bracing of buildings and other cable-supported structures not subjected to vehicle loads. Parts of buildings to which this standard is applicable include roofs, floors, curtain walls, masts, and nets. In addition, Appendix A addresses cables and fittings, Appendix B discusses saddles, Appendix C addresses clamps, and Appendix D reviews cable fatigue. Guyed utility towers and vehicular bridges are not covered by this standard. This standard applies to carbon-steel and stainless-steel cables. Requirements for earthquake load resistant sway bracing design for nonstructural components of buildings are contained in Appendix E.
