Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction
This resource is an information sheet about the design of stainless steel cold formed angles used to support the outer leaf of masonry cladding in buildings. It covers the design method for deflection and stress calculations which model the angle as a propped cantilever and is validated for a set range of support angles. Two design examples are then presented to illustrate the described method. Finally the ‘Good Construction Practice’ section notes the key points for angle and fixing details, construction details and recommended construction sequence.
