Profiled Sheeting, available in an array of different profiles, colours and surface textures, offer competitive solutions to large industrial and commercial properties. Generally “ New-builds” will incorporate a lightweight lining sheet with a foam filled core giving the required “U” value to meet current building regulations. Flashings to eaves; ridge; verges and valley details are usually formed from identical material as the sheets, giving a uniform appearance.
The general fixing method for sheeting relies on a variety of steel, “self-drilling” fixings with “rubber” washers & colour coded caps. Laps are generally sealed and secured with “stitching” screws to prevent ingress of water and wind damage.
Low pitches can be achieved with the use of “ secret-fix” systems or with a galvanised decking sheet, which can be heavy-duty structural sheets, removing the necessity for purlins, combined with vapour barrier and cut-to-falls insulation with a variety of water-proof membranes….such as single-ply PVC and Firestone EPDM.
Low-pitched roofs can be installed to manufacturer’s recommendations and be installed with guarantees up to thirty-years, dependant on the site location, design and product selected.
Protrusions and awkward details can be incorporated with the “Elastaseal” system, outlined on the “Elastaseal” page. Self-terminating systems like “Elastaseal” remove the requirement of long and complicated flashings which are liable to leak and are susceptible to wind damage.
Older, failing industrial roofs, can be either “covered” with a new support grid [on pitched roofs] and an additional layer of sheeting [on pitched roofs] or coated with an “Elastaseal” type product which is suitable for pitched and flat roofs. Both systems generally allow the building to remain occupied during the progress of the work. This gives the roof a new lease of life without the substantial cost and inconvenience of re-roofing.
Cut edge corrosion has become a significant issue over recent years, especially with plastisol coated roof sheets. Left untreated this can cause failure of the roof sheet and lead to the requirement for elaborate and expensive remedial works. Various systems to treat this are available such as “TOR” Elastaseal.
Roof-lights , generally formed from a factory sealed , G.R.P or acrylic, double skin panel, allow natural light into the property, reducing the need for artificial lighting and reducing energy consumption .
