Lightweight Sandwich Construction
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Lightweight sandwich construction, which uses two thin metal sheets sandwiched with a layer of insulation, is now used widely for factories and warehouses. However, designers are faced with a range of problems, including insulation and condensation, durability and fire spread, and there is little authoritative guidance on the subject. This book brings together a group of European experts to provide practical information for designers, specifiers and manufacturers.
