Metal Building Systems Manual

The 2012 Metal Building Systems Manual provides a practical and comprehensive resource that will help engineers, building officials, and plan checkers meet the metal building requirements of the 2012International Building Code® (IBC®).

The 2012 edition reflects changes in the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) and its referenced ASCE 7-10 standard. The manual also incorporates the results of research undertaken by MBMA, its member companies, and other industry groups. The 2012 Metal Building Systems Manual has a number of significant additions and updates, including, but not limited to the following:

  • The 2010 Supplement to the 2006 Metal Building Systems Manual has been merged into the body of the 2012 Metal Building Systems Manual and its appendices.

  • Considerable updates were provided in the Design Practice and Load Application chapter, which provides guidance on the applications of loads to metal buildings from the 2012International Building Code (IBC) and ASCE 7-10 standard.

  • The updated Climatological Data by County chapter provides tabulated wind, seismic, snow and rain load data by United States County based on referenced wind, snow and seismic loads provided by the 2012 IBC, ASCE 7-10 standard, and rainfall intensity loads provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

  • The Fire Protection chapter includes additional fire rated wall assemblies recently tested at Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) that will provide 1- and 2-hour fire resistance rating of metal building exterior walls, along with five new 1-hour head-of-wall and continuity joint assemblies.
