Chicago — March 7, 2016 — It is now easier for architects, contractors, and building managers looking for technical assistance to access a wealth of metal construction resources on the Metal Construction Association’s (MCA’s) website at www.metalconstruction.org/Tech-Resources.
The MCA has reorganized more than 25 technical resources that are available for free download from the association’s website. Resources range from MCM Specifications to Metal Roofing Guides for Cold Climates to best practices guides for Fasteners, Rain Screen and Wall Systems, and Roof Seeming.
The technical resources section of the website has been enhanced to display the newest resources at the top, followed by resources grouped by application category. Categories include metal roofing, metal walls, insulated metal panels, and another category which includes resources related to metal roof and metal wall components, fastening tools, life cycle assessments, roll forming, and more.
“We are continually developing new materials based on needs in the industry,” said Scott Kriner, MCA’s technical director. “We are committed to raising the level of expertise among all those that take part in designing, specifying, and installing metal building products.”
The MCA brings together a diverse industry for the purpose of expanding the use of metal in construction through marketing, research, technology, and education.
