BS 8298 stone cladding comments deadline looms

August 2020

Draft changes to BS 8298: Part 4 are now out for consultation, and all comments need to be received by 31st August 2020.

BS 8298: Part 4 is currently being up-dated and is now out for public consultation. Offering guidance on the use of stone for cladding buildings, this part of the standard covers the design of rainscreens and stone cladding on metal frames.

The draft changes to BS 8298; Part 4 can be viewed on the Standards Development Portal of the BSI website (link below), where interested parties can also submit comments.

BS 8298, developed from a Code of Practice published by Stone Federation Great Britain, was previously updated in 2010, which is when it was split into four parts.  It originally had just one part covering various aspects of the use of stone.

The changes proposed incorporate recommendations for factory production from Part 1 of the standard, the addition of several figures to illustrate key details, and updated information about the design of the stone to follow the principals of limited state design, which is about making sure the stone fulfils its requirements in the building.
