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.
