It is critical for professionals to understand the regulatory requirements governing the design and installation of fasteners to ensure the construction of safe and functional building structures. Superseding the 2018 edition of the fastener standard, AS 5216:2021 introduces new provisions that have significant implications for compliance across the industry. In particular, the new Appendix F introduces C2, a new and more stringent seismic performance category for fasteners in addition to the existing C1.
Complying with the Revised AS 5216 Fastener Standard provides an essential guide to Appendix F in AS 5216:2021, which sets out requirements for the design of post-installed fasteners under seismic action, and what it means for professionals in the industry. We focus on determining seismic performance categories, how they impact fastener requirements for safety-critical applications across different building types, and the differences between C1 and C2 fasteners.
