A Designer's Guide to Specifying Warranted 316 Austenitic Stainless Steel Fasteners and Sealants
Fastener specification is critical to the performance of roofing and cladding systems. The specification of fastener and sealing products needs to be addressed at the early stages of design, to allow the completed envelope to perform throughout its life. This design guide addresses the principle performance criteria of fasteners and sealants, namely durability, weather-sealing, thermal bridging, aesthetics, and technical performance.
SFS is one of the world's leading manufacturers of carbon and stainless-steel fastener components for the building envelope. It also produces innovative rainscreen sub-frame systems, high performance door hinges and an award-winning fall protection range. With a site in Leeds that it has operated for more than a century now, SFS is a Swiss-headquartered company with annual sales exceeding £1.3bn.
