Final Inspection Tolerances
In accordance with most production methods, tolerances are necessary to cover variations in the actual process and to allow for tool wear. Differences in surface texture, as with perforated and patterned products, can also affect dimensional accuracy.
GA 5* final inspection tolerances have been carefully selected as appropriate to satisfy the needs of the architectural market. These clearly defined fabrication limits help to minimise and / or prevent difficulties arising in the majority of on-site erection or assembly projects. If it is considered tighter accuracy is required we will be pleased to confirm if this is possible. Unless otherwise stated at the time of quotation and/or ordering, fabricated items produced by our Company will comply with the GA 5* Fabrication standard.
