What is AS/NZS4600?
The BCA calls up AS/NZS4600 Cold formed steel structures code for the design of cold formed steel in building.
AS/NZS 4600 relies on guaranteed values for chemical composition, mechanical properties, dimensional tolerances, methods of manufacture and quality control provisions for all materials used in a cold formed steel structure.
AS/NZS4600 is based on Australian Standards including:
- AS/NZS 1397
- AS/NZS 1595
- AS/NZS 2728
These have been calibrated based on Australian manufacturing steels, testing statistics and work practices.
