I received a gun safe for Christmas and would love to place it in an upper floor room. The weight of the safe is 260 pounds and the dimensions are 21" wide by 17 3/4" deep.
Will the Floor Joist hold this weight without bending or cracking?
If I remember correctly the Joists are 2x10's 16" on center. The span from the beam to the poured concrete walls is 12', but the safe will sit no more than 3' from the beam. The floor on top of the joists is probably 3/4" plywood and then 3/4" tongue and groove 1X3 red oak floors.
