Eurocode 5 span tables contains section sizes and spans for solid timber members in floors, ceilings and roofs (excluding trussed rafter roofs) for dwellings. The calculations apply to buildings up to three storeys in height above ground level. Span tables were originally included in the England and Wales Building Regulations, Approved Document A: Structure and subsequently revised by TRADA.

Tables are included for domestic floor joists, ceiling joists and binders, and rafters and purlins supporting rafters for traditional pitched roofs. Calculations are also given for "canted" purlins supporting roof sheeting or cladding, and for flat roof joists. The tables cover softwood species and grade combinations which satisfy strength classes C16 and C24. Frequently asked questions are addressed in the notes alongside the tables.
