The Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) has published a new guidance document offering good practice advice on the storage, handling and installation of the secondary steelwork and associated components.
The performance of a steel framed building depends on good interaction between the secondary steelwork and the cladding; crucial to this interaction is the correct installation of the purlins and side rails.
The aim of the document is to promote good practice across the industry, leading to improvements in health and safety, efficiency and building envelope performance.
It sets out an overview of the issues that need to be addressed in order to meet the performance criteria identified by the building designer.
