Product Description

Extreme loading conditions are also known as 'accidental loads' as they occur during conditions usually attributed to events that are fundamentally unlikely to occur. They are referred to as 'accidental design situations' and as such, the rules governing the application of loads/actions that arise from such rare events are very different to those that exist for more everyday occurrences.
