Fifth Edition of the ‘Blue Book’ Released by the NFRC

THE FIFTH EDITION of Profiled sheet roofing and cladding – The NFRC guide to design and best practice, otherwise known as the ‘Blue Book’, has been updated with the latest technical information and industry guidance.

The Blue Book provides an accessible, practical guide to the application, design and installation of profiled sheeting for roofs and wall cladding.

Broken down into standard industry sub-categories, each section reviewed by industry experts, provides the most up-to-date advice that reflects existing standards and regulations.

Aimed at designers, estimators and installers, this latest edition includes 52 detailed drawings plus working calculations and has been revised by the NFRC’s technical team, with the help of contributing members of the NFRC Sheeting & Cladding Technical Committee and other stakeholders.

Bob Richardson, NFRC Head of Technical, said, “This comprehensive guide reflects the mission of the NFRC, which is to provide standards and guidance to our members that raises confidence among businesses and householders, and promotes roofing and cladding as a skilled sector in the wider construction industry. The result is a book that continues to be the standard reference point for the industry.”

Available as a fully interactive PDF, with links and bookmarks between sections for easier navigation, it can be downloaded as a complete book.
