Fixings - General & Safety-critical fixings
We are pleased to share three training videos, courtesy of CIRIA member Costain, that include the key messages from our recent publications on the subject;
Management of safety-critical fixings (C778) is a free publication, this good practice guidance aims to improve the management of safety-critical fixings, and highlight how good design and installation can minimise risk. This guidance looks at more heavily loaded structural fixings. Download a copy of the free guidance here.
General fixings – selection and whole-life management (C777) aims to alert readers to the risks involved, the technical challenges to be addressed, and the need for firm guidance on risk management in its widest sense. This guidance covers lightly loaded fabric fixings to the most common substrates (steelwork, timber, concrete, masonry), and discusses the factors that need to be taken into account, along with exploring the selection process.
