Check sources for availability of lumber in lengths greater than 20 feet.For SI: 1 inch = 25.4 mm, 1 foot = 304.8 mm, 1 pound per square foot = 0.0479kPa.a. The tabulated rafter spans assume that ceiling joists are located at the bottom of the attic space or that some other method of resisting the outward push of the rafters

on the bearing walls, such as rafter ties, is provided at that location. When ceiling joists or rafter ties are located higher in the attic space, the rafter spans shall bemultiplied by the factors given below:

HC/HR Rafter Span Adjustment Factor

1/3 0.67

1/4 0.76

1/5 0.83

1/6 0.90

1/7.5 or less 1.00

where:HC = Height of ceiling joists or rafter ties measured vertically above the top of the rafter support walls.HR = Height of roof ridge measured vertically above the top of the rafter support walls.

b. Span exceeds 26 feet in length.

Check sources for availability of lumber in lengths greater than 20 feet.For SI: 1 inch = 25.4 mm, 1 foot = 304.8 mm, 1 pound per square foot = 0.0479kPa.a. The tabulated rafter spans assume that ceiling joists are located at the bottom of the attic space or that some other method of resisting the outward push of the rafters

on the bearing walls, such as rafter ties, is provided at that location. When ceiling joists or rafter ties are located higher in the attic space, the rafter spans shall bemultiplied by the factors given below:

HC/HR Rafter Span Adjustment Factor

1/3 0.67

1/4 0.76

1/5 0.83

1/6 0.90

1/7.5 or less 1.00

where:HC = Height of ceiling joists or rafter ties measured vertically above the top of the rafter support walls.HR = Height of roof ridge measured vertically above the top of the rafter support walls.

b. Span exceeds 26 feet in length.

Check sources for availability of lumber in lengths greater than 20 feet.For SI: 1 inch = 25.4 mm, 1 foot = 304.8 mm, 1 pound per square foot = 0.0479kPa.a. The tabulated rafter spans assume that ceiling joists are located at the bottom of the attic space or that some other method of resisting the outward push of the rafters

on the bearing walls, such as rafter ties, is provided at that location. When ceiling joists or rafter ties are located higher in the attic space, the rafter spans shall bemultiplied by the factors given below:

HC/HR Rafter Span Adjustment Factor

1/3 0.67

1/4 0.76

1/5 0.83

1/6 0.90

1/7.5 or less 1.00

where:HC = Height of ceiling joists or rafter ties measured vertically above the top of the rafter support walls.HR = Height of roof ridge measured vertically above the top of the rafter support walls.

b. Span exceeds 26 feet in length.

SECTION R805CEILING FINISHES

R805.1 Ceiling installation. Ceilings shall be installed inaccordance with the requirements for interior wall finishes asprovided in Section R702.

SECTION R806ROOF VENTILATION

R806.1 Ventilation required. Enclosed attics and enclosedrafter spaces formed where ceilings are applied directly to theunderside of roof rafters shall have cross ventilation for eachseparate space by ventilating openings protected against theentrance of rain or snow. Ventilating openings shall be pro-vided with corrosion-resistant wire mesh, with 1/8 inch (3.2mm) minimum to 1/4 inch (6 mm) maximum openings.

R806.2 Minimum area. The total net free ventilating areashall not be less than 1/150 of the area of the space ventilatedexcept that reduction of the total area to 1/300 is permitted, pro-vided that at least 50 percent and not more than 80 percent ofthe required ventilating area is provided by ventilators locatedin the upper portion of the space to be ventilated at least 3 feet(914 mm) above the eave or cornice vents with the balance ofthe required ventilation provided by eave or cornice vents. Asan alternative, the net free cross-ventilation area may bereduced to 1/300 when a vapor barrier having a transmission ratenot exceeding 1 perm (5.7 � 10-11 kg/s � m2 � Pa) is installed onthe warm-in-winter side of the ceiling.

R806.3 Vent and insulation clearance. Where eave or cornicevents are installed, insulation shall not block the free flow of

air. A minimum of a 1-inch (25 mm) space shall be providedbetween the insulation and the roof sheathing and at the loca-tion of the vent.

R806.4 Conditioned attic assemblies. Unvented conditionedattic assemblies (spaces between the ceiling joists of the topstory and the roof rafters) are permitted under the followingconditions:

1. No interior vapor retarders are installed on the ceilingside (attic floor) of the unvented attic assembly.

2. An air-impermeable insulation is applied in direct con-tact to the underside/interior of the structural roof deck.“Air-impermeable” shall be defined by ASTM E 283.

3. Sufficient insulation is installed to maintain the monthlyaverage temperature of the condensing surface above45°F (7°C). The condensing surface is defined as eitherthe structural roof deck or the interior surface of anair-impermeable insulation applied in direct contact withthe underside/interior of the structural roof deck.“Air-impermeable” is quantitatively defined by ASTME 283. For calculation purposes, an interior temperatureof 68°F (20°C) is assumed. The exterior temperature isassumed to be the monthly average outside temperature.

SECTION R807ATTIC ACCESS

R807.1 Attic access. Buildings with combustible ceiling orroof construction shall have an attic access opening to atticareas that exceed 30 square feet (2.8 m2) and have a verticalheight of 30 inches (762 mm) or more.
