Profiled Sheeting Design Guide
Marley Eternit has recently unveiled an updated version of its Profiled Sheeting Design Guide (June 2012).
The guide is available as a hard copy or as a download from the Marlet Eternit website.
The 98-page guide includes comprehensive information on the design, detailing and specification of fibre cement profiled sheeting.
The guide features comprehensive sustainability section which provides details on the company’s responsible sourcing accreditation, BES 6001, which can help with Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM ratings.
The guide also contains information on the company’s range of ventilation solutions, introduced in response to the rise in the use of fibre cement profiled sheeting in domestic, light industrial and commercial sectors.
Fibre cement profiled sheeting offers rust, rot and corrosion free properties.

The Edgemere range can achieve up to an A rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification and has certification under the BES 6001 for responsible sourcing. It can also help towards top credits under the Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM.
