Stramit® Curved Corrugated and Bullnose Roof 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:
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® Curved Corrugated and Bullnose Roof Cladding can be supplied in any length from 500mm to 4000mm. Longer lengths may be supplied by arrangement. When measuring it should be noted that at the end of each curve adjacent to the curve there is at least 100mm that cannot be curved which must be allowed for.
The manufacturing tolerance on the length of products supplied is +0, -15mm.
Stramit products conform to the following Australian standards that are called up in the NCC.
Roofing / Walling products
Stramit's roofing and walling products are protected in Australia by registered designs.
All Stramit roofing and wall cladding products conform with, or are equivalent to, AS1562.1.
Stramit has in-house, purpose built testing equipment used to design, develop and improve products for the Australian market. Many of our products are tested or witnessed by independent organisations. These include:
The ongoing research and development activity ensure we remain at the forefront of innovation, design and consumer information.
Please refer to the Stramit Roof and Wall Flashing Architectural Detailing Design Guide.
The roofing/walling shall be 0.60mm BMT Stramit® Curved Corrugated cladding in continuous lengths with sinusoidal ribs 16mm high, spaced at 76.2mm centres in accordance with AS1445, curved to a radius of _____mm. Sheeting material shall be protected steel sheet to Australian Standard AS1397, with a minimum yield stress of 300MPa (Grade G300) and an AM100/AZ150 coating with or without an oven-baked paint film of selected colour, or a plain AM125/AZ150 coating.
The sheeting shall be fixed to the purlins/girts in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Suitable fixing screws in accordance with Australian Standard AS3566, Class 3, shall be used at every support with side lap fasteners installed at mid span if required. Sheets shall be laid in such a manner that the approved side lap faces away from the prevailing weather. A minimum of 50mm shall be provided for projection into gutters. Flashings shall be supplied in compatible materials as specified; minimum cover of flashing shall be 150mm.
All sheeting shall be fixed in a workman-like manner, leaving the job clean and weathertight. Repair minor blemishes with touch-up paint supplied by the roof manufacturer. All debris (nuts, screws, cuttings, filings etc.) shall be cleaned off daily.
Class 4 fasteners should be used <1km from the coast.
To ensure you receive product to suit your application it is essential that you provide us with detailed information. Please supply template and all information wherever possible.
For curving purposes it is necessary to produce a sheet with a minimum straight section at the sheet end of 100mm. All or part of this straight section can be removed upon request (docked).
Cyclonic Data for Stramit® Curved Corrugated and Bullnose Roof Cladding can be found in the Stramit Cyclonic Areas Guide.
Information on the use of Stramit® Curved Corrugated and Bullnose Roof Cladding in the Darwin area can be found in deemed-to-comply sheets numbers M/149/01 and M/239/01. These are available from Stramit or on the NT BAC website.
Stramit® Curved Corrugated and Bullnose Roof Cladding can be fixed with either 3 or 5 fasteners per sheet at each batten/purlin to meet the required performance values.
All external fastening screws must conform to AS3566 – Class 3. They are to be hexagon headed and must be used with sealing washers for both roofing and walling.
For connecting to purlins or top hats use:
*For attaching Stramit® Curved Corrugated sheeting to battens of thickness less than 1.5mm bmt, refer to Stramit's Top Hats & Battens Product Technical Manual.
Foot traffic limits for Stramit® Curved Corrugated and Bullnose Roof 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 conform to AS1562.1 with 1.1kN load specified in AS/NZA1170.1 for R2 - Other Roofs. These require minimal careful foot traffic only on the designated footpath. Suggested for use only where occasional aesthetic imperfections from foot traffic are acceptable.
Stramit® Curved Corrugated decking is manufactured from G300 colour coated steel, aluminium-zinc-magnesium 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 AS/NZA2728 – Category 3 and, for the substrate, with AS1397. Aluminium-zinc-magnesium alloy coated AM100/AM125, zinc-aluminium alloy coated AZ150 and galvanised Z450 conform to AS1397.
Stramit has a comprehensive range of colours as standard. Ask your nearest Stramit location for colour availability.
The profiles of G300 and G550 Corrugated cladding may vary and should not be used in overlapping configurations.
The minimum roof slope for Stramit® Curved Corrugated Roof and Wall Cladding is 5 degrees for many applications.
The spans shown below take account of 'normal' foot traffic and wind resistance including local pressure zone effects. Pressures are based on AS4055 or AS/NZA1170.2.
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, where both length and width exceed the building height and site is unaffected by land topography. For bullnosed roofs the span is to be taken as the sheet length between fastening positions at supports.
Internal spans must have both end spans 20% shorter.
TC - Terrain category. FS, PS, NS - Full, partial and no shielding. Internal pressure coefficient +0.2/-0.3.
Values are only valid for use with steel members of 1.5mm or thicker. Where thinner supports are used, fastener capacity must be checked. Refer to Stramit® Top Hat & Battens Product Technical Manual for more information.
For more specific applications Stramit® Curved Corrugated cladding must be designed to the pressure and foot traffic limitations below.
Roof spans may exceed those shown in this table provided the wind pressure and foot traffic limits are not exceeded.
Stramit® Curved Corrugated cladding can be spring curved, concave and convex, including curved ridges, provided it is sealed at the apex, and within the recommended limits shown.
*At these radii a maximum support spacing of 900mm applies, and limit state pressure capacities are reduced by 14% for serviceability and 7% for strength. These reductions apply proportionately up to the lowest neutral radius. Minimum 5 fasteners required per sheet at ends.
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® Curved Corrugated and Bullnose Roof 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.
Based on AS1562.1
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.
Tables are based on testing to AS1562.1 and AS4040 parts 0 and 2. Internal spans must have both ends 20% shorter.
Values only valid for use with steel support members of 1.5mm or thicker. Where thinner supports are used, fastener capacity must be checked.
Refer to Stramit® Cyclonic Areas Roof and Wall Cladding Brochure for information on use in cyclonic regions.
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® Curved Corrugated and Bullnose Roof 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® Curved Corrugated & Bullnose Roof Cladding is a straightforward procedure using the following fixing sequence.
