How thick is your steel -TCT & BMT
Make Sure You Know What Cladding Is Being Used And The Thickness Of The Steel.
Make sure that any quotes you receive either state BMT or TCT so you’ll know exactly how thick the steel is.
Thicker cladding results in a stronger shed as there is more steel will be more expensive. Ensure that when comparing quotes that the cladding you compare is of equal thickness.
Here’s some jargon to help you better understand your shed quotes.
· BMT stands for Base Metal Thickness and is how thick the steel is before it is painted.
· TCT stands for Total Coated Thickness and is how thick the steel is after it is painted.
It’s important to remember that the coating of Colorbond paint on your shed measures different in thickness.
If you import from a foreign company,you’ed better ask them to give you all the info about the steel.Besides,both the zinc coating and film coating are important factors influencing quality and cost.
