8.6.1 Light-Gage Metal, Plastic or Cementitious Roof Panels
All light-gage metal, plastic or cementitious roof panels are properly connected to the roof framing at not more than 12 inches on center.
For conforming buildings, the evaluator may consider this condition as mitigated, and no calculations are necessary. The deficiency is the lack of connection of sufficient strength between the roof panels and the framing elements. Report this condition as a deficiency.
8.6.2 Wall Panels
All wall panels (metal, fiberglass or cementitious) are properly connected to the framing.
For conforming buildings, the evaluator may consider this condition as mitigated, and no calculations are necessary. The deficiency is the lack of connections of sufficient strength (to prevent a falling hazard) and flexibility (to allow for the relative displacements between the panel and the supporting frame). Report this condition as a deficiency.
