EN 1090 - Guide to Stainless Steel Published by SCI

07 Feb 2014

The European Standard EN 1090 covers the fabrication and erection of carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminium structures, specifying acceptable standards for surface finish, joining, fabrication, erection, installation, inspection, maintenance and cleaning. This new SCI publication presents the specific stainless steel clauses given in EN 1090 with accompanying commentary, which will be particularly useful for specialist stainless steel fabricators who do not predominantly work for the construction sector. A series of model clauses is also included, with supporting commentary, covering additional and optional requirements which may sometimes be necessary to suit a particular stainless steel structure, for example for applications where high quality products and workmanship are needed.
