* Spans are indicative only and apply to wall and roof profiles using 0.6 BMT steel, specific site conditions and fire rated structures need to be calculated by a certified engineer.
* For canopies and snow load use AS1170.3.
* For wind speed direction refer to code AS1170.2 regions A6 and A7 and W, by default use 1.00Kpa, note wind pressure depends on life of building
* 0.50kPa loading takes account of fire load.

* Roof pitches will vary depending on site conditions, loads, purpose, configuration, snow loading and span requirements.
* Buildings designed with widely spaced purlins and portal frames may require a frame pitch increase of 1.5%.
* Under the building code, insulated panel used as a cladding is an Alternative Solution. In a roofing application, Bondor New Zealand panel satisfies the requirements of the NZBC External Moisture Clause E2, when correctly specified and installed with flashings, which direct the flow of water away from the building envelope.
