    Thanks for the info:

    Pretty much a standard spec for ordinary grade steel (couldn't see anything out of the ordinary). The blast spec is the same as normal for new steel but I imagine that using these older units it will take significantly longer?
    Hi jamesingram,

    I think it is quite difficult to comply with Gold. Even technically, I can say we have the ability to reach it, but most time the investers are not willing to spend that much money get obtain U value at that level, except the project is belonging to Council or other government bureaus.

    a) best place to procure

    Anyone able to offer advice?
