Introduction contd

Design

Detailing

Sustainability

BW Industries have developed


software for the design of cold
formed purlins, sheeting rails and
mezzanine floor beams. This is
provided as an aid to designers
and specifiers to allow selection
of the optimum section.

BW Industries produce standard


detailing sheets which allow
detailers to order standard
sections and components.
The information on these sheets
is used to generate a CAM data
file which is then fed directly
into the manufacturing system.

BW Industries are committed


to supporting and developing
sustainability throughout all
its departments.

The software has been developed


following extensive testing of
sections by and under the
approval of the SCI (Steel
Construction Institute), this
was undertaken to accurately
determine bending capacities.
The software is for designs in
accordance with BS EN 1993
this being the relevant european
design standard.
The software has been developed
by a chartered structural engineer
and has been independently
checked and verified by the SCI.
Fully comprehensive technical
support is available from our
design team.
 ll of the steelwork is 100%
A
recyclable, all steel is currently
manufactured using 40%
recycled steel.

Standard details are available


on a number of electronic
draughting packages such as
Strucad and Autocad.
BW Industries also have facilities
to produce detail drawings as
required for any project.
Non standard sections and
non standard hole sizes
and or punchings can be
accommodated on request.

Steel is one of the most recycled


materials used in the world, use
of recycled material does not
compromise the quality of new
steel produced from it.
By addressing key issues such as
product design, CO2 emissions,
recycling of waste materials and
prudent use of all resources BW
Industries take responsibility for
managing environmental issues.

Costing
Following selection of the optimum
sections BW Industries provide
competitive quotations for
manufacture, supply and delivery.
BW Industries are pleased to
offer this service for bespoke
sections and for their large range
of standard sections.

Introduction contd
Ordering
In order to facilitate the ordering
process BW Industries have a
range of standard drawings and
details which can be completed
by the client. These are then used
to prepare an acknowledgement
which itemizes precisely what
is required.
Alternatively BW Industries have
in house draughting facilities to
allow preparation of fabrication
drawings and details.

Manufacture
The information on any
fabrication drawings and details
is programmed into a Cam data
file which is transmitted directly
to the rolling or fabrication plant.

Certification
BW Industries have developed design software
based on the methodology in the relevant European
standards and extensive testing of their product range.
This information has been independently assessed
and approved by the SCI who are an internationally
recognized authority in the field of light gauge
steelwork design and construction.
BW Industries are pleased to display the SCI logo
and to confirm that their products have achieved
SCI Assessed status with the
appropriate certification.

Ancillary items are produced in


conjunction with the manufacture
of major components.
All major components are normally
ink jet printed to show what they
are and from which materials they
have been formed. This process
is so that there is a trail which
shows exactly what has been
manufactured.

Dispatch and Supply


BW Industries have a team of
experienced personnel who hand
pick the items for dispatch and
load these onto the vehicles which
have been arranged for onward
transportation. Depending on the
end users requirements specialist
vehicles with on board lifting
equipment can be arranged to
facilitate material off-loading at
the delivery address.

Sleeved System
Purlins Sleeved System

The sleeved purlin system is suitable for buildings with two or


more bays and utilises single span length purlins with sleeves. The
sleeves are formed from the same section as the purlins but are
installed inverted.
The sleeves, which achieve a high degree of continuity over the
purlin supports are fitted at all penultimate rafter connections and
staggered on all internal bays, allow economy of purlin section
selection.
The system can be used for single span purlins and for double
span purlins.

Lap System
Purlins Lap System

The lap system is a further variation of the sleeved system which


is suitable for buildings with five or more bays. Extended single
span purlins are alternatively inverted and overlapped with each
other.
The lapped section has the benefit of achieving a high degree of
continuity over the purlin supports thus allowing economic section
selection.
The avoidance of sleeves means that there are fewer system
components and additionally reduced site erection time.

Roof Variations
Monopitch Roof

Use the
BW Building
Wizard
Software
for accurate
calculations

For monopitch and other roofs where there is no restraint to the


ridge purlin via apex ties some equivalent anchor must be used.
This may take the form of a simple tie to a substantial ridge beam
or alternatively by a combination of struts and diagonal bracing
between the top two purlins.
Restraints should be used at mid-span for purlin spans greater than
3.5m and at one third and two thirds of span for purlin spans greater
than 7.5m.
For long roof slopes additional diagonal bracing may be required.

Tiled/Mansard Roof

These types of roof covering may cause bending about both


axes of the roof purlins due to their weight. In order to provide
adequate restraint rigid struts should be used in lieu of anti sag
ties. The ridge purlins should be tied using a rigid apex strut.
Diagonal bracing wires are required between the top two purlins.
Additional diagonal bracing will be required for every 6m length
of roof slope.
The struts should be arranged such that the maximum
unrestrained purlin length is restricted to 2m.
The timber rafters should be joined across the apex or be fixed
to a ridge board.

Roof Variations contd
Non-restraining Cladding to Roof

Many modern cladding systems do not provide adequate


lateral restraint to the top flange of the purlins. In this situation
it is necessary to replace the standard anti-sag ties with angle
strut braces.
The struts should be arranged such that the maximum
unrestrained purlin length is restricted to 2m.

Steep Roof

For roof pitches greater than 25 diagonal bracing


should always be provided.
These diagonal wires used in conjunction with angle
strut sag bars allow for bending about both axes of
the purlin.
Rigid apex ties are also required.

BW Snaptite Ties also prevent the purlin from rotating during
installation whilst assisting with restraining the bottom flange
against wind uplift. The rigidity of the purlin is greatly enhanced
once the roof sheeting is installed
 W Snaptite Anti-sag Ties should be fitted when a purlin span
B
is in excess of 4.6m so that the laterally unsupported length does
not exceed 3.8m. For Z301 & Z341 Purlins use sheeting rail type
angle braces (as diagram) above.

Roof pitch 4 to 10
Fix Snaptite Anti-sag Ties top hole to bottom hole to prevent
purlin from rolling forwards
Roof pitch above 10
Fix Snaptite Anti-sag Ties bottom hole to top hole to prevent
purlin from rolling backwards
Other Criteria
For roof pitch below 4 and purlin centres above 2.5m use
sheeting rail type angle braces. For roof slope in excess of
18m use sheeting rail diagonal tie system supports

It is recommended the above detail is adhered to if wind loadings


are unknown or doubtful.

In some cases Anti-sag Ties are not required. This situation
demands that temporary props/bars are used until the sheeting
is fixed, but regardless of wind loading, the absolute maximum
spans without permanent ties are:
Z141, Z151, Z171, Z201........................................... up to 6.1m

Fire Restraint Wall System


Fire Restraint Wall System
In certain applications it is necessary to include fire protection to some or all of the perimeter walls around the building. There are many fire
resistant wall cladding systems which are available today.

Fixing system 1

Fixing system 2

Outside Columns

Butt/Non-Continuous Rail Arrangement, normally fixed outside


the columns, but can also be fitted between the columns. Allow
60mm gap at rail joint for expansion.

Special Firewall Sleeves

Inside Columns

Sleeved Rail Arrangement. Alternate sleeve butt/non-continuous


connection to column, even number of bays. Whenodd bays occur,
use the special sleeve. Allow 60mm gap at rail joints for expansion.

General Notes
The rail or cleat is slotted longitudinally (14mm x 50mm) on the
standard gauge lines. 60mm gap required between ends of rails.
Fixing bolts to all joints must be fitted with a combustible washer,
which will collapse under fire conditions, to allow movement for the
rail to expand.
The period of resistance is solely dependent on the cladding
material used, and the type of construction. A certificate should be
obtained from the cladding supplier.
All primary structural steelwork, supporting the rails and cladding,
should be fire protected.
