Seminars to boost steel construction knowledge
Kingspan Structural Products has developed a CPD Seminar which has been approved by Construction CPD Certification Services. The seminar reviews the history of structural materials used in construction with particular focus on the evolution of steel.
The CPD discusses the different components used in steel structure and explores issues which may need to be considered when specifying structural materials. These include designing to Eurocodes or British Standards and the consideration of sustainability and health and safety. It also provides a comparison of cold rolled structural materials available in the current market, paying particular attention to different types of purlins.
Kingspan manufactures cold formed structural products including Multibeam purlin and rail systems.
The company has recently launched the Multibeam Component Weight App. This is said to be unique to Kingspan Structural products and allows you to calculate weights of purlins, rails, eaves beam and ancillary components based on the section size.
Once the App is open, one just chooses Multibeam, Mulitchannel or Eaves Beam and then scroll to the relevant section size to see the component weight values. You can then click on the ancillary icon to view the weights of ancillaries associated with that product.
Available for touch phones such as iPhones, iPods, iPads and Android, the App is downloadable from www.Kingspanstructural.com
