Hi,
Steel frame work forming the structural part of a roof. Not linked together, not accessible.
Timber fixed to the steel out for the ceiling support, (separation).

Does this structural steel need equipotential bonding?


Thanks

But it may require earthing if the electrical installation meets any of the criteria of 5.4.6.1

Some might say it's a requirement under 5.4.6.2 as well...
