Durability recommendations do vary based on the application of the product in roofing or walling installations. Please read these tables carefully.
*>2kn residential buildings
The approximate site exposure conditions in the table above are defined below.
The suitability and exposure tables above are current at time of publication, subject to change, and are guidelines only; conditions will vary from site to site. Please check the Bluescope Technical Bulletins for the latest information and guidance on selection, maintenance and durability. If uncertain about the appropriate coating for a particular application, or if the product is to be used in environments affected by industrial emissions, fossil fuel combustion, animal farming, or has unwashed areas, please contact your nearest Stramit office for advice.
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.

Foot traffic limits for Stramit Monoclad® 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 AS1562.1 with 1.1kN loads as specified in AS/NZS1170.1 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.
Tables are based on tests to AS1562.1 and AS4040 parts 0 and 1.
For more information on foot traffic performance of Stramit's roofing profiles refer to Stramit's Foot Traffic Guide.
Stramit Monoclad® Roof and Wall Cladding is manufactured from hi-tensile G550 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/NZS2728 – Category3 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 minimum roof slope for Stramit Monoclad® Roof and Wall Cladding is 2 degrees.
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/NZS1170.2 .
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.
*Where roof pitch is less than 10 degrees, use spans given in red italics for roof corners. Internal spans must have both end spans 20% shorter. TC – Terrain Category. FS, PS, NS – Full, partial and no shielding. Internal 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 Monoclad® cladding must be designed to the pressure and foot traffic limitations indicated.
Roof spans may exceed those shown in this table, provided the wind pressure and foot traffic limits are not exceeded.
Stramit Monoclad® 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.
*At these radii a maximum support spacing of 1200mm 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.
For more comprehensive information on spring curving Monoclad® cladding and other Stramit® roofing profiles, refer to the Stramit Spring Curving Guide.
All metal roof sheeting is subject to thermal expansion and, where there is a temperature difference between the sheeting and the structure, this needs to be accommodated. The colour of the sheeting will affect the amount of thermal expansion, and whether the sheet is flat or curved will affect its ability to resist without problems.
Sheet lengths should be limited to:
Larger roof run lengths on a single plane support structure can be readily constructed using the MonoLap® Roof Lap Joint System.
Monoclad® Roof and Wall Cladding has excellent water-carrying capacity enabling roof slopes to be as low as 2° 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.
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 end spans 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® Top Hat & Battens Product Technical Manual for more information.
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 Monoclad® Roof and Wall Cladding is readily installed with or without a fibreglass insulation blanket. If practical, lay sheets in the opposite direction to prevailing weather.
Installation of Stramit Monoclad® Roof and Wall Cladding is a straightforward procedure using the following fixing sequence.
The Stramit MonoLap® roof lap joint is a revolutionary system (patent pending) that changes the way long run roof cladding is designed and installed. It provides a multiple sheet option for long length screw fixed roofing projects that eliminates traditional step joints or the need for long on-site rolled sheets, without compromising the integrity of the roofing structure.
Designed specifically for Stramit Monoclad® Cladding, the Stramit MonoLap® roof lap joint system allows the installation of lapped sheets on standard purlin framing, without the need for conventional stepped jointing. The system provides a combination of a strong joint and a weather-resisting seal between lapped sheets.
The system is simply installed by placing onto the bottom sheet with enlarged holes in the ribs. The top, overlapping sheet is then placed over the Stramit MonoLap® units, and screwed through both layers to the support below. The joint connectors and sealing foam are manufactured from high technology materials that provide strength and weather-resistance and preserve the existing roofing warranty.
Stramit MonoLap® roof lap joints can only be used with Stramit Monoclad® Roof Cladding and with the following provisions:
For detailed information refer to the Stramit MonoLap® Product Technical Supplement, or download the Stramit MonoLap® Roof Lap Joint System Promotional Flyer.
Stramit MonoLap® lap joints are readily installed on Stramit Monoclad® Roof Cladding. Stramit Monoclad® Roof Cladding sheets are installed in the normal manner, except that:
When installing the Stramit MonoLap® units:
For use in conjunction with the Stramit MonoLap® Roof Lap Joint System, the Stramit MonoSky® joint is only suitable for the fibreglass over fibreglass joint and the edge joint of the fibreglass over the Stramit Monoclad® sheeting.
Fibreglass sheet overlaps should be a minimum of 350mm as per the Stramit MonoLap® Product Installation Supplement. For full installation instructions refer to the Stramit MonoSky® Joint System Installation Supplement.
As with all roofing products, we recommend extra caution be taken when walking on the roof. When walking on Stramit Monoclad® Roof and Wall Cladding always wear flat rubber soled shoes and place feet only in the pans, taking care to avoid the last pan or two near edges of the metal roof area. Walk only in pans, or on ribs at purlin supports.
