- Handling & Storage
Briarwood's 32/1000 is an extremely versatile profile that can be used in a wide variety of applications. It makes a very robust roofing sheet and can be produced in forward or reverse profile to create attractive vertical elevations. It can also be used as a lining sheet in twin skin insulated systems and as a roof liner in 0.7mm.
Our 32/1000 Box Profile Metal Roofing Sheet is our most popular profile, particularly in the industrial sector and is available on a fast turnaround in a wide range of colours and finishes. It is also the profile that we have utilised to create our Highlight ventilated wall cladding for agricultural buildings.
Maintenance of Metal Profiled Sheets
It is good practice to carry out annual inspection of the building exterior and to carry out any remedial work identified during the inspection. Minor scuffing of the colour coating should not be treated. Deeper scratches which reach the substrate should be repaired with touch-up paint.
The touch-up paint should only be applied to the original scratch using a fine paint brush. As touch-up paint will dry to a slightly different colour to the original coating, so the area which is touched up should be kept as small as possible.
Handling and storage
Profiles are supplied banded when delivered to site. Offloading is the responsibility of the customer. Profiles can be off-loaded directly to the roof, or to a storage area, which should be dry and well away from traffic. Packs may be stacked using suitable wooden bearers and packers. Bearers should be placed above each other.
Handle profiles carefully to avoid marking weather sheets. Lift sheets from the pack – do not drag them. Observe site health and safety procedures and the results of manual handling and other assessments.
Installation of Metal Profiled Sheets
Lay sheets in the sequence shown (figure 1), keeping the lower run one sheet ahead of the higher run to ensure that the higher sheet is always lapping over the lower sheet.
Apply a single continuous bead of 6 x 5mm butyl sealant the length of the side lap on sheet 1 (figure 2). Position sheet 2 adjacent to sheet 1 with the foot of the sheet to the eaves. Fix sheet 2 and stitch at 400mm centres on the overlap.
Apply two beads of 6 x 5mm butyl sealant to the head of sheet 1 and 2 approximately 75mm apart (figure 3). Position sheet 3 and fix through the centre of every trough between the two runs of sealant.
If fixing to intermediate purlins (no laps), see design guide on page 6 for fixing layout.
