SHTM Building Component Series Fitted storage system.



SHTM 63 v1.0 Dec 2006 Scottish Health Technical Memorandum 63 SHTM Building Component Series Fitted storage system This SHTM offers guidance on the technical design and output specifications of a fitted storage system suitable for use in health buildings. It is intended as general guidance only to building design teams responsible for the specification, project design and performance requirements, and to manufacturers in the development of products to meet those requirements. This SHTM is based on HTM 63 as published by the Department of Health. In Scotland, it has been common practice over the past few years to specify floor mounted storage components with plinths. This is acknowledged within this document, though cantilevered units are still preferred.
