Building Regulations specify the standard to which a structure should be built i.e strength, fire ratings etc. All of our bespoke design structures are built to the following regulations;
Steelwork is galvanised to BS 1461 – offering a minimum of 34 years and longer, subject to location
BS EN 1990:2002+A1:2005 Eurocode – basis of structural design
BS EN 1993-1-1:2005 Eurocode 3 – Design of steel structures
BS EN 1991-1-3:2003 Eurocode 1 – Snow Loads
BS EN 1991-1-4:2005 Eurocode 1 – Wind Actions
All design work is assessed and underwritten by an independent Structural Engineer.
It is advisable that you contact your Local Building Control Officer to confirm if your canopy will need to conform to any specific Building Regulations.
Our pre-designed “standard” products are engineered with considerations to the above standards. With their predetermined components/connections there may be certain sites (e.g. high altitude, coastal towns etc…) that require the standard products to be re-engineered. For the avoidance of any doubt, Broxap’s technical department should be consulted.
