New guidance on fasteners for metal roof and wall cladding

  • 9 Dec 2019

The Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) has published a new guidance document titled Fasteners for metal roof and wall cladding: design, detailing and installation guide.

The importance of the correct selection of such fasteners is often underestimated by architects, designers, system suppliers and contractors.

This 50-page guidance document offers a comprehensive practical guide on the selection, use and performance of fasteners, designed for use within the typical metal roofing and cladding systems specified for modern industrial, commercial and residential buildings. 

The guidance document covers a wide range of topics, including fastener types, performance criteria, durability, weathertightness, aesthetics, typical cladding systems, detailing and installation and tooling.
