Specifies requirements for fabrication, materials and erection, using cold formed steel, of structural steelwork in building. Also specifies requirements for profiled sheets for cladding, flooring and roof decking in buildings up to the time the product is delivered to the building site. Does not cover the special requirements pertaining to the fabrication of curved profiled sheets. Coverage includes definitions, major symbols, bolting and cutting. Also includes tables and diagrams.
