Site Guides

The FIS Site Guides have been written for the construction team as a practical guide to provide specialist knowledge in relation to health and safety, storage, handling, fixing and sequencing with other trades.

All those associated with ceilings, partitioning, wallcoverings, raised access flooring or drylining installation should be aware of what is deemed to be good practice in relation to health and safety, storage, handling and sequencing with other trades, as well as fixing. The objective of the Site Guides is to be useful to all members of the construction team.

Companies not eligible for FIS Membership may be able to access to these publications on request, please email info@thefis.org with your request.
