The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) announced that its S200-series (cold-formed steel framing), S300-series (profiled steel diaphragm) and S900-series (test) standards are now available for downloading free of charge at a new website location, www.aisistandards.org.
“We wanted to make these standards readily available and free of charge to architects, engineers, code officials and others who need them, with a website address that is easy to remember,” said Jay Larson, P.E., F.ASCE, managing director of AISI’s Construction Technical Program. “The printed versions of these standards, as well as the electronic and printed versions of AISI S100-12: North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members, are still available for purchase at AISI’s Online Store, https://shop.steel.org/. By making our standards accessible in both formats, we are increasing their availability to construction professionals worldwide.”
