GO TO GERARD ROOFS TECHNICAL & DESIGN RESOURCES

Our new Specification site!

Architects and specifiers interested in Gerard's pressed steel roof solutions now have all the key information at their fingertips thanks to Gerard's freshly launched technical and design website.


The new site provides users with a dedicated technical resource on Gerard features and benefits, scope of use, compliance and installation in both standard and specific environments.


Features include the update of 218 CAD files – also made easier to access thanks to a new CAD Detail Selector tool, while the new Document Library makes for user-friendly browsing of product and technical literature.


Gerard's New Zealand Marketing Manager Sarah Widdup says it's an important milestone for the business, and part of an ongoing commitment to Specifiers.


          "The site is a great source of technical, specification and general information for architects, designers, builders, and anyone involved in the technicalities of a roof. We have designed the site to work in tandem with our consumer site and it also utilises the refresh of all of our CAD details."


A summary of features and updates:

  • Refined content and pages containing the "need to know" technical information for each of Gerard's eight profiles and three trims.
  • 218 new CAD files across three formats – DWG, PDF and RVT.
  • New CAD search tool, with clear titles and preview images aiding more user-friendly CAD browsing.
  • New Document Library containing updated technical literature.
  • Detailed top-down images of each Gerard profile in various finishes and tones.



In addition to the new Specifer site, Gerard has also just refreshed its presence on third party architectural resources EBOSS and Productspec, with more to come in 2018.
