This certificate relates to the Abkins Norman 2 Building System for single and double storey buildings.
The structural system consists of loadbearing and shear wall panels that support a concrete floor. External and internal loadbearing walls are factory manufactured with a mild steel channel perimeter frame and mild steel lipped-channel vertical studs and horizontal noggings, with cross-bracing where required. The walls are clad externally with Nutek fibre-cement boards and internally with X-rated gypsum plasterboard.
The floor slab is reinforced concrete on Q-deck permanent shuttering spanning between steel beams. Internal structural walls are clad both sides with X-rated gypsum plasterboard.
Internal partition walls are conventional drywall partitioning clad with either fibre-cement or gypsum plasterboard.
Foundations, surface bed and roof construction are conventional.
The certificate covers the use of the building system in all areas of Southern Africa for the erection of single and double storey buildings of the following types, provided the structural system, as set out in Part II of the certificate, is adhered to:
