This Standard specifies performance requirements for prepainted and organic film/metal laminate products in sheet and strip form that are coated on one or both sides with an organic film, and that are intended for fabrication into products for use in the construction or finishing of buildings.

The Standard classifies pre-finished/prepainted metal products into six types according to their performance, in respect to durability and aesthetics, in environments of varying severity. It specifies three levels of coating finish.

AS 1562.1:2018

Specifies requirements for the design and installation of all classes of self-supporting sheet metal roof and wall cladding for both cyclone and non-cyclone regions.

AS 4040:1992

Specifies a series of test methods which can be applied to sheet roof and wall cladding of various forms and base materials.

AS 1170.1:2002

Provides design values of permanent, imposed and other actions to be used in the limit state design of structures and members. It is intended to be used in conjunction with AS/NZS 1170.0. Other actions covered include liquid pressure, ground water, rain water ponding and earth pressure.

AS 1170.2: 2011

Provides design values of wind actions for use in structural design. It is intended to be used in conjunction with AS/NZS 1170.0, which gives the procedure for structural design. Wind speeds and direction factors are provided for a range of probabilities of exceedance. Other factors cover the environment around the structure, the geometry of the structure and the dynamic interaction of the structure with the wind.

AS 1445:2013

Specifies requirements for 76 mm pitch corrugated steel sheet manufactured from hot-dipped zinc-coated or aluminium/zinc-coated steel sheet in accordance with AS 1397. Three classes of product are specified and these represent materials in common use - for roofing (Class R), tank making (Class T) and walling (Class W).


Provides additional information in the form of pictures, sound and text, to help in the understanding of Sections 3, 5, 7 and 8 of SAA HB39-2015. Published in conjunction with the Metal Building Products Manufacturers Association and the Victorian Plumbing Industry Board.

AS 3566:2002

Specifies the dimensions, thread forms, lead types, mechanical properties and performance and working requirements for self-drilling screws intended for drilling and tapping into steel and fixing to timber

AS 3959:1999

Sets out requirements for the design and construction of buildings in bushfire-prone areas in order to improve their performance when they are subjected to burning debris, radiant heat or flame contact generated from a bushfire. Also includes a methodology for assessing categories of bushfire attack in respect of a site situated in an area that has been designated by a relevant authority as bushfire-prone.

AS 2312:2002

Provides guidelines for the selection and specification of coating systems for the short, medium and long term protection of structural steel work against interior and exterior atmospheric, and non-atmospheric corrosive environments. The following aspects are covered in detail: Atmospheric environments, planning and design, surface preparation treatments, metallic and paint coatings, maintenance of coating systems, inspection and testing, and preparation of coating specifications. Contains comprehensive details of modern paint systems, including properties and typical applications.

AS 2311:2017

Provides guidelines on products and procedures for the painting of buildings for domestic, commercial and industrial use. Discusses different material surfaces, paint products, the preparation of unpainted and prepainted surfaces and gives recommendations for painting systems for new and maintenance work. Includes recommendations for some specialized service applications, guidelines on the preparation of a paint system specification and discusses inspection and testing protocols.

BS EN 10327:2004

BS EN 10327:2004 supersedes BS EN 10214. It specifies requirements for continuously hot-dip coated products made of low carbon steels for cold forming coated with zinc (Z), zinc-iron alloy (ZF), zinc-aluminium alloy (ZA), aluminium-zinc alloy (AZ) and aluminium-silicon alloy (AS ) with a thickness of 0.35 mm to 3.0 mm unless otherwise agreed.

This document applies to strips of all widths and to sheets cut from it (≥ 600 mm width) and cut lengths (< 600 mm width). If agreed at the time of enquiry and order, this document may also be applied to continuously hot-dip coated flat products in thicknesses > 3,0 mm. In this case the mechanical property, adhesion of coating and surface condition requirements shall also be agreed at the time of enquiry and order.

BS EN 10327:2004 is not applicable to continuously hot-dip coated structural steel flat products; electrolytically zinc coated cold rolled steel flat products; continuously organic coated (coil coated) steel flat products; or continuously hot-dip coated strip and sheet of steels with higher yield strength for cold forming.

BS 5427:2016

Code of practice for the use of profiled sheet for roof and wall cladding on buildings; apples to:

Cladding (buildings), Sheet cladding, Exterior cladding, Sheet materials, Corrugated, Construction materials, Sheet roof coverings, Sheet wall coverings, Profile, Design, Steels, Aluminium, Plastics, Cements, Finishes


Standard Specification for Chromium and Chromium-Nickel Stainless Steel Plate, Sheet, and Strip for Pressure Vessels and for General Applications

BCA/NCC (National Construction Code) 2019

Produced and maintained by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), the NCC is Australia’s primary set of technical design and construction provisions for buildings. As a performance-based code, it sets the minimum required level for the safety, health, amenity, accessibility and sustainability of certain buildings. It primarily applies to the design and construction of new buildings, and plumbing and drainage systems in new and existing buildings.
