Design and installation of metal roof and wall cladding, Part 1: Metal

Included in Metal, cement fibre, plastic rooves set
This Standard sets out requirements for the design and installation of self-supporting metal roof and wall cladding, subjected to out-of-plane external actions and in-plane thermally induced actions, permanent actions on walls and steep roofs and frictional drag of wind and snow actions.
