    Hi All,

    Can someone please provide some advice, I am having a 5m sliding door installed and had noticed that the RSJ didn't have a steel plated - but have been assured that this method of fixing, we're using straps to tie to the block return, but above the door the full length is some C24 which has been affixed to the exterior brick work - it all looks a bit afterthought to me, will this be adequate enough to affix to, and what if any issues might arise from wind driven rain etc - that timber just looks like it will be rotten in no time, even when it's covered by fascia/soffits/tiles.

    Just looking for some reassurance!

    Thanks

    Would you like to try again in English? And in the correct forum (Building would be more appropriate).
    The steel bearing onto the inner skin looks a bit shoddy- what do the structural engineer calcs have to say about it?
    The timber rotting- won't be a problem if ventilated soffits are fitted
    The sliding doors- what are they hanging on and what are they designed to do?
    If they are sliding doors (not bifolds) then they may be designed with the bulk of the weight on the floor & the track for stability or the track carries the weight and the floor guide is for stability. Do share.
