Eurocode Standards


Shanette Sheds comply with the strict building standards (Eurocodes) set by The European Union. These Eurocodes apply to the design of buildings and the requirements for resistance, serviceability and durability of steel structures.

  • Shanette structures are designed to support their own self weight, uniform snow loading and wind loading.
  • Eurocode 3 applies to the design of buildings and other civil engineering works in steel.
  • Eurocode 3 is concerned with requirements for resistance, serviceability, and durability of steel structures.
