How much can I safely store in my loft??

Postby » Thu Sep 02, 2021 4:32 pm


I'm not sure if anyone can help me with this...

I have moved into a 20 year old property with a decent sized loft space that's already been boarded with chipboard (and insulated) and I'm trying to find out what weight the floor can take per square metre?

The rafters are 60cm apart on centre and are 4.5cm wide by 9.5 cm high.

I'm not planning to push it close to the maximum and I'll spread it out as much as possible - just wanted to get an idea of it's rating so I can feel reassured that I'm pretty far away from it.

Thanks for reading!
