Guide to Good Practice
One of the principle objectives of the Federation of Traditional Roofing Contractors is to improve the workmanship standards of installation and widen the technical design knowledge necessary to protect the integrity of an installation.
Manufacturers publish recommendations for their own product, but these individually-prepared guidance notes vary in content and detail, due in no small part to the varying countries of origin in which they are produced.
The FTMRC was therefore determined to collate and publish a comprehensive technical Guide to Good Practice, which was first published in 2007.
Five years later the second edition of the Guide to Good Practice in Fully Supported Metal Roofing and Cladding was launched. This edition was an enhanced version of the ground-breaking foundations of the first and second editions.
In October 2018 an even better, much extended and improved third edition of the FTMRC Guide to Good Practice in Fully Supported Metal Roofing and Cladding provides a fully comprehensive reference document for the design, specification and installation of traditional metal roofing and cladding.
The third and latest edition of the Guide to Good Practice, with its updates, additional drawings and details, provides an essential training companion for those learning the craft of hard metal roofing and cladding.
It is a vital resource for candidates wishing to enhance or confirm technical detail throughout their course and pathway to a qualification. It also provides an essential aid for technical information and guidance, as well as codes of practice.
Copies of the UK Guide to Good Practice can be obtained direct from the FTMRC office and www.guidetometalroofing.co.uk. Profits generated from the sale of the Guide are ploughed straight back in to the further development of training and qualifications in traditional hard metals roofing and cladding.
The FTMRC Guide to Good Practice provides a convenient and authoritative technical reference that will assist everyone in maintaining quality standards in traditional metal roofing design and installation.
