General Information close-medium-white

Stramit® Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding gives excellent durability in almost all locations. However, it is important to choose the correct coating for each application environment. Durability recommendations do vary based on the application of the product in roofing or walling installations.

All building products need to be checked for compatibility with adjacent materials. These checks need to be for both direct contact between materials, and where water runs from one material to another.

The following guidelines generally avoid material incompatibility:

  • For zinc-aluminium alloy coated steel, colour coated steel and galvanised steel cladding avoid copper, lead, green or treated timber, stainless steel and mortar or concrete.
  • Galvanised steel sheets should not receive drainage from aluminium or any inert materials, such as plastics, glass, glazed tiles, colour coated and zinc-aluminium alloy.

Stramit's roofing and walling products should be handled with care at all times to preserve the product capabilities and quality of the finish.

Packs should always be kept dry and stored above ground level while on site. If the products become wet, they should be separated, wiped and placed in the open to promote drying.

Stramit's cladding is suitable for use with insulating blanket. Glasswool blanket up to 50mm thick can be readily used. Increased thicknesses require longer fasteners and greater care in installation.

For domestic applications Stramit recommends that insulation is always used. Contact us for further information.

Stramit® Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding is supplied cut to length. When designing or transporting long products ensure that the length is within the limit of the local Transport Authority regulations.

The manufacturing tolerance on the length of product supplied is +0, -15mm.

Foot traffic limits for Stramit® Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding are shown for 3 alternative foot traffic categories:

High Maintenance – for applications with repeated maintenance, particularly where personnel may be unfamiliar with correct procedures for walking on metal roofs.

Normal – based on traditional expectations, with moderate maintenance foot traffic using designated footpaths.

Controlled – spans that confirm to AS1562 but require minimal careful foot traffic only on the designated footpath. Suggested for use only where occasional aesthetic imperfections from foot traffic are acceptable.

Stramit Corrugated Foot Traffic

For more information on foot traffic performance of Stramit's roofing profiles refer to Stramit's Foot Traffic Guide where tables are based on tests to AS1562 and AS4040 parts 0 and 1.

Stramit® Corrugated decking is manufactured from G550 or G300 colour coated steel or zinc-aluminium alloy coated steel. In some locations galvanised and severe environment colour coated steel may be available by arrangement.

Colour coated steels are in accordance with AS2728 – Category 3 and, for the substrate, with AS1397. Zinc-aluminium alloy coated AZ150, aluminium-zinc-magnesium alloy coated AM100/AM125 and galvanised Z450 conform to AS1397. 

Stramit Corrugated Cladding Sheet Mass

The profiles of G300 and G550 Corrugated cladding may vary and should not be used in overlapping configurations.

The minimum roof slope for Stramit® Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding is 5 degrees (1 in 12).

The spans shown below take account of normal foot traffic and wind resistance including local pressure zone effects. Pressures are based on AS4055 or AS1170.2.

Where the two standards differ, the worst case has been taken for each classification. Data should only be used for buildings 7m or less in height, 1000m2 or less in area and unaffected by land topography.

Stramit Corrugated Performance

Stramit® Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding can be spring-curved, concave or convex, including curved ridges, provided it is sealed at the apex, and within the recommended limits below.

Stramit Corrugated Curving

The Stramit Spring Curving Guide has more detailed information.

All metal roof sheeting is subject to thermal expansion and this needs to be accommodated where there is a temperature difference between the sheeting and the structure.

The colour of the sheeting will affect the amount of thermal expansion, and whether the sheet is flat or cured will affect its ability to resist without problems. Sheet lengths should be limited as follows.

Stramit Corrugated Maximum Sheet Length

Stramit® Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding has limited water-carrying capacity. Roof slopes can be as low as 5° for many applications.

Roof run lengths are the combined lengths of all roof elements contributing to a single pan drainage path. This can include the roof length upstream of a roof penetration that concentrates flow into other pans.

The table below gives slopes for 100 year return period rainfall intensity.

Stramit’s Roof Slope Guide provides additional information.

Derived from testing, the following tables give the wind load resistance for both serviceability and strength limit states. Values are only valid for use with steel support members of 1.5mm or thicker.

Installation Information close-medium-white

Stramit's cladding can be easily cut, where required, using a power saw with a cold cut saw blade or a power nibbler and, for localised cutting, tin snips. Avoid the use of abrasive discs as these can cause burred edges and coating damage. Please dispose of any off-cuts carefully and thoughtfully.

Stramit® Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding can be installed with or without fibreglass insulation blanket. If practical, lay sheets in the opposition direction to the prevailing weather.

Installation of Stramit® Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding is a straightforward procedure using the following fixing sequence.

  •  Ensure all purlins are in line and correctly installed and that mesh and blanket (if specified) are in place.
  • Position and fix the first sheet ensuring the correct sheet overhangs (minimum 50mm). Ensure that screws are not overtightened.
  • Continue to fix subsequent sheets checking that sheet ends at the lower edge are exactly aligned.
  • It is important that the underlap of one sheet does not protrude beyond the overlap of the next – if this is unavoidable, the underlap must be trimmed locally or water ‘drawback’ may occur.
  • Measure the overall cover width at the top and bottom of the sheets from time to time to avoid 'fanning'.
  • For roof spans exceeding 900mm and wall spans exceeding 1200mm, stich the sidelaps at midspan.
  • Turn up the pans at the upper roof edge and install flashings.
  • Clean up the roof after each day's work , removing all screws, cuttings and swarf so the roof is left clean and watertight.

As with all roofing products, we recommend extra caution be taken when walking on the roof. When walking on Stramit® Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding, always wear flat rubber soled shoes and place feet only on the ribs, taking care to avoid the last rib or two near edges of the metal roof area.

Maintenance Information close-medium-white

Below are some handy hints and tips to achieve maximum life from your COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® finished products.

  • In areas of little rainfall, products should be cleaned regularly.
  • Brick cleaning acid should not come into contact with steel fascia, gutter, or roofing and walling.
  • Never immerse these products in sand, soil or concrete.
  • Do not use touch up spray can paint on COLORBOND® steel.
  • Remove metal debris from cutting and/or drilling to avoid swarf damage.
  • Prior to installation, keep bundled material dry.
  • Prepainted metal roofing components should be stored in the shade as the protective plastic film will become difficult to remove if it is exposed to direct sunlight.
  • Make sure materials made of different metal, such as copper and lead, do not make contact with these products, and water does not run from one to the other.
  • Roofing and guttering should be free draining and free from dirt and leaves.
