Metal Sheeting

Installation

Research has found that most wind damage associated with translucent roof sheets is as a result of sheets being pulled over the fastenings.

This is normally related to the following aspects of the installation:

  • Purlin or grit spacing
  • Diameter of fastening washer
  • Frequency and accuracy of fastening

For side cladding with all profiles, the maximum grit spacing should be 1 500mm.
