Over the past 40 years Corus has established a leading position for metal envelope solutions and the development, manufacture and supply of technically leading products and services for pre-finished steel. The market leader through the Colorcoat® brand, Corus has channelled its extensive expertise into the development of the new Colorcoat Building Manual.
An invaluable and comprehensive reference source for the design, specification and construction of metal envelopes, the Manual is divided into 8 sections covering 27 key topics, including planning, sustainability, building regulations, refurbishment and detailed case studies.
The Manual is Ideal for use in conjunction with existing cladding system manufacturers’ literature and actively promotes best practice standards, regulatory compliant design criteria and innovative construction solutions, it has been specifically developed to meet the needs of designers in a straightforward and comprehensive manner.
With information on a wide range of relevant issues, the Manual details how designers can minimise energy usage during the occupational life of the building, develop an easy-to-use “inspection survey template” and assess the criteria that will impact upon the envelope over its lifespan. In addition it addresses the importance of selecting the correct steel products alongside the cladding system.
