Organisation Description

The MCRMA brings together the UK’s leading roofing and cladding providers who supply built up systems, insulated panels, rainscreens, rainwater management systems and structural deck systems. These companies have delivered to the majority of the industry’s most prestigious buildings creating imaginative and innovative building designs that offer cost-effective and sustainable solutions which will benefit future generations. The MCRMA represents and promotes the interests of manufacturing companies, suppliers, independent roofing and cladding inspectors and industry support services companies who provide products, systems and services within the non-domestic metal roof and wall market sector.

CPD Courses and Workshops Available

  • Guidance for Snow Loading on Cladding

    Online Course | Metal Cladding & Roofing Manufacturers Association

    Heavy snow falls can result in damage to roofs and their supporting structures. Good building design in terms of resistance to snow loading starts with the correct specification of the roof cladding and its supporting structure. This online resource distinguishes between types of snow load; the factors affecting snow loading and snow loading calculations. By following the recommended calculation procedures; building designers can ensure that the roofs of their buildings do not collapse. All construction professionals need to be aware of the basic principles of snow loading to ensure that they play their part in specifying and delivering safe buildings.

  • Installation Of Purlins And Side Rails

    Online Course | Metal Cladding & Roofing Manufacturers Association

    The ability of a steel framed building to perform adequately depends on good interaction between the secondary steelwork and the cladding; crucial to this interaction is the correct installation of the purlins and side rails. This CPD sets out an overview of the issues that need to be addressed in order to meet the performance criteria identified by the building designer. The CPD gives advice on the storage; handling and installation of the secondary steelwork and associated components. The aim is to promote good practice across the industry leading to improvements in health and safety; efficiency and building envelope performance.

  • Guidance For Wind Loadings On Roof And Wall Cladding

    Online Course | Metal Cladding & Roofing Manufacturers Association

    This CPD introduces the key issues that need to be taken into account when calculating wind loadings. Buildings and their cladding are expected to withstand the worst that the weather can throw at them without risk of failure or loss of function. However; such performance is only possible due to the care that goes into their design and the attention to detail during the manufacture and installation of the building envelope. In this CPD you will examine wind forces on buildings; the factors affecting wind loading; including location; altitude and the height and shape of the building and practical considerations.

  • GD20 Serviceability states and deflections criteria

    Online Course | Metal Cladding & Roofing Manufacturers Association

    In structural engineering serviceability refers to the conditions under which a building is still considered useful. This course sets out an overview of the issues that need to be addressed in order to meet the performance criteria identified by the building designer. The course explains the importance of setting the deflection criteria at the design stage and implementing them at the construction stage to ensure that all elements of the construction perform as expected. The course also includes guidance on installation tolerances for purlins and rails supporting profile metal roof sheeting and wall cladding.

  • GD28 Mineral wool insulation installation best practice guides

    Online Course | Metal Cladding & Roofing Manufacturers Association

    Insulating a building is one of the most cost-effective ways of saving energy and reducing heating and cooling bills. Installation practices at the construction phase must ensure that the insulation of the building fabric meets with design stage calculations; manufacturer’s guidance and Building Regulations. This course sets out an overview of the factors that need to be taken into account in the storage; handling and installation of mineral wool insulation in built-up metal roof and wall cladding systems. The course examines design factors and also includes guidance on both roof and wall installation and standards of workmanship.
