System Design Data and Graphic Illustrations fill the SMACNA - Standard Practice in Sheet Metal Work
SMACNA - Standard Practice in Sheet Metal Work Contains a collection of 1929 system design graphic and data illustrations. This CD-Rom also includes pattern layouts that represent the best-known practices within the industry. All patterns covered have been proven over a period of years. This CD is especially beneficial to architects, as it covers a lot of sections and places from a vast array of architectural elements such as refurbishing, restoration, retrofitting and rebuilding. More than a historical look at custom architectural sheet metal, this publication contains a graphic collection of system designs, including pattern layouts representing the Old World practices in the industry that have been developed over generations and proven over decades of use. With today’s emphasis on restoration, refurbishing, rebuilding, retro-designs and retrofitting, architects will find this publication more than of historical interest.
Architectural sections include elaborate cornices, skylights, domes, spires, spun balusters, gargoyles, marquise, storefronts, metal buildings and metal roofs. Additional chapters cover heating and ventilation systems including gravity furnaces. Blowpipe sections cover design, layout, construction and equipment.
