I just ran into this amazing resource and thought I’d share it. CHECK IT OUT!
FM Global has data sheets available online for free that cover about everything in buildings that might need to be insured. These data sheets provide material and installation guidelines and list potential problems.
FM Global is a highly-respected international property insurance and loss prevention engineering company with US$5.3 billion of in-force premium and US$11.9 billion in policyholders’ surplus (FY2016), with clients in more than 100 countries and 5500 employees.
FM Global uses a non-traditional business model in which risk and premiums are determined by engineering analysis as opposed to historically based actuarial calculations. FM Global engineering personnel visit insured locations to evaluate hazards and recommend improvements to the property or work practices to reduce physical and financial risks.
