Archived Document: Code of Practice for the Design of Static Racking (1992) – PDF only


This code of practice has been introduced primarily to regulate static structures which are designed partly on an experimental basis for :-

a) the use of cold formed, thin gauge multiple holed sections which are common to the industry today and for which there are no alternative national standards which are totally applicable;

b) the use of semi rigid hook or stud type connections to transfer load between beams and uprights and to maintain stability.
