Title: U-values for light steel-frame construction

Ref Code: DG465
Authors: S M Doran and M T Gorgolewski

Abstract1: This Digest gives a method for assessing U-values of light steel-frame constructions, developed by BRE and SCI. The method has been validated using BS EN ISO 10211-1 and enables U-values to be calculated by a simplified method similar to that in BS EN ISO 6946. It can easily be incorporated into software tools used by designers, builders and enforcers of the Building Regulations. This Digest supports the 2002 editions of Approved Documents L1 and L2. It is addressed to designers and others concerned with energy efficiency in buildings.
