Publications

MCRMA produces a range of publications designed to educate specifiers and contractors alike on metal building envelope design, the systems available, their application, superior life expectancy and unrivalled value over other material alternatives.

The guidance documents below set out to answer some of the frequently asked questions relating to building envelope systems and their components. The documents cover a wide range of topics including  working at heights, CE marking, installation of purlins and side rails, CDM regulations and non-fragility. A list of guidance documents can be downloaded here.

The technical design guides are available primarily as a reference resource and will prove particularly useful to specifiers who need to check on metal building envelope specifications of the last 25 years.

MCRMA has published a new Advice Note AN 06 Safe working practices on roofs: the distinction between ‘walkable’ and ‘non-fragility’. AN 06 is intended to remind all those involved in roof work construction that they have a responsibility to be aware of the most up to date advice on safe working practices and also to be compliant with the legal requirements.
