The sheeting used conforms to Building Regulations 2000 (England & Wales), is U rated for insulation properties, has a Class 3 fire rating, UV filter and anti algae barrier and is manufactured under ISO9001:2000.
Resistance to wind loading
The sheeting is designed to have adequate resistance to wind loads calculated in accordance with BS 6399-2: 1997
Resistance to snow loading
The sheeting is designed to support a distributed load of 1.5 kNm-2. The magnitude of the actual snow load imposed will depend on varying factors such as height above sea level, geographical location etc. It is therefore recommended that in situations where a load greater than 1.5kNm-2 is expected, methods from BS 6399-3: 1988 are used to calculate the snow load.
Performance in relation to fire
The sheeting product is a grade SAB3 thermo-set material SAB to BS 476-3: 1958 and Class 3 to BS 476-7:1997.
All aluminium extrusions used are made and powder coated under British Standard specification 6063t6/6082t6 BSEN755.
All of our canopies are designed in accordance with the following;
Part 1: 1996 Code of practice for dead and imposed loads.
Part 2: 1997 Code of practice for wind loads.
Part 3: 1988 Code of practice for imposed roof loads.
Part 1: 2000 Structural use of steelwork in building.
