Founding. Technical conditions of delivery. Additional requirements for aluminium alloy castings

Status : Current, Under review   Published : February 2015



What is this standard about?

BS EN 1090 specifies technical requirements for the manufacture and installation of cold-formed structural aluminium components and structures made from profiled sheeting. It covers roof, ceiling, floor and wall applications under predominately static or seismic loading conditions.

Who is this standard for?

  • Architects, engineers, surveyors and all involved with the design process
  • Building contractors
  • Those involved with marine and transportation vehicles

Why should you use this standard? 

This standard gives the aluminium component supply industry a user-friendly specification on the application of cold-formed structural aluminium components. It covers:

  • Products of structural class I and II according to BS EN 1999-1-4
  • Profiled as well as perforated and micro-profiled sheeting
  • Spacer constructions between the outer and inner or upper and lower skins
  • Supporting members for roofs, walls and ceilings made from cold-formed profiled sheeting
  • The connections and attachments of the roofs, walls and ceilings as long as they are involved in load transfer
  • Documentation of structures

NOTE: A combination of steel and aluminium structural elements are permitted, e.g. steel liner trays stiffened by profiles made of aluminium. In this case, BS EN 1090-4 and this document apply.
