The load diagram can be used for reference when selecting the section size while taking a specific maximum load and the suspension distances into account. The suspension distances stated are based on a deflection of 1:300, the common value for calculating crane systems. Smaller deflection values such as 1:400 may be required for certain applications.
Example: With a maximum load of 200 kg and a predetermined suspension distance of 5,000 mm the profile SRA-140 is used. The maximum deflection is then 17 mm (5,000 mm / 300).
