The maximum likely load in this case is, therefore, closely controlled. §The loading in industrial buildings ( workshops and factories ) varies considerably and SO three loadingsunder the terms ‘light’, ‘medium’ and ‘heavy’ are introduced in order to allow for more economical designs butthe terms have no special meaning in themselves other than the imposed load for which the relevant floor is design-ed. It is, however, important particularly in the case of heavy weight loads, to assess the actual loads to ensurethat they are not in excess of 10 kN/m*; in case where they are in excess, the design shall be based on the actualloadings. i/For various mechanical handling equipment which are used to transport goods, as in warehouses, workshops,store rooms, etc, the actual load coming from the use of such equipment shall be as-ertained and design shouldcater to such loads. 11
