5' straight bar maximum load?

Sorry if this already been covered, did a search but couldn't find anything. I've got a standard york 5' chrome-plated spinlock barbell and trying to find out the maximum weight it can hold. I've been putting 100kg on there and it hadn't developed a bend or anything but I'm going to be getting another pair of 20kg weights so would it be alright up to 140kg? Checked the manufacturer website but they don't seem to have maximum weights listed, next step be to give them a call. Cheers if anyone knows.
