General Information close-medium-white

Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking gives excellent durability in almost all locations. With all of its fastenings protected beneath the decking, Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking can be expected to outlast through-fixed roofing. 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.

The unique Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking full width clip compresses blanket during installation making fixing easy. Blanket up to 100mm in thickness can be readily used. High thermal efficiency can be achieved by using Styrofoam blocks laid between the blanket and the fixing clips. Contact us for further information.

Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking 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.

Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Performance


Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking can be spring curved, concave and convex, including curved ridges, provided it is within the recommended limits below.

Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® 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. Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking has excellent resistance to the problems associated with thermal expansion, however sheet lengths should be limited as follows.

Stramit Speed Deck Ultra Thermal

Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking has excellent water-carrying capacity. This and the sheeting stiffness enable roof slopes to be as low as 1° 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 Speed Deck Ultra® Water Capacity


For more information on water carrying performance of Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking and other Stramit roofing profiles refer to Stramit's Roof Slope Guide. Maximum water protection is also ensured by the absence of fastener penetrations when using Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking.


Derived from testing, the following tables give the wind load resistance for both serviceability and strength limit states.

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.

The Stramit FarLap® roof lap joint is a patented revolutionary system that changes the way long run roof decking is designed and installed. It provides a multiple sheet option for long length concealed 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 Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking, the Stramit FarLap® 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 clipping onto the ribs of the bottom sheet. The top, overlapping sheet is then pushed on to the Stramit FarLap® units, providing a structural connection. 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 FarLap® roof lap joints can only be used with Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking and with the following provisions:

  • installed on roofs specifically designed for its use
  • all purlins must be in a single plane, ie no step down
  • purlins must be spaced to allow for sheeting end spans on either side of the joint, and
  • translucent sheeting joints must coincide with the decking joint.

Stramit FarLap® lap joints are readily installed on Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® decking. No additional fasteners are required. Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking sheets are installed in the normal manner, except that:

  • Alignment of the first row of clips for both the lower and all upper runs should be determined before commencing deck laying on the lower run. This ensures that decking in upper runs is accurately aligned with the lower run.
  • Sheet ends at the lap joints must be turned up and down using the FarLap® turn-up/down tool. Install the lower run and turn up the sheet ends, then install the upper run before turning down the lower ends of the upper sheets.
  • The sheet overlap must be at least 350mm.
  • Translucent sheeting for a lower run should be fixed before laying decking on an upper run.


When installing the Stramit FarLap® units:

  • Install on the deck above the metal Speed Deck Ultra® clips (within 50mm).
  • Connect each unit to the next by removing and then joining with the link piece.
  • Ensure that every decking rib has an independent plastic connector fitted (cut the foam to obtain a start, or final portion from a full unit if needed, ensuring the foam slot coincides with the upper sheet underlap).

Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking is readily installed with or without fibreglass insulation blanket. If practical lay sheets in the opposite direction to prevailing weather.

Installation of Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking is a straightforward procedure using the following fixing sequence.

  • Ensure all purlins are in line and correctly installed. Using a string line or the edge of the first sheet, align the first row of fixing clips. Screw the clips to the purlins in the same order as the direction of laying.
  • Locate the first sheet over the clips with the correct projection at each end of the sheet. Snap each rib on to the clip at every purlin, always in the order of the direction of laying. Note – Do not use undue force; the deck will easily accommodate clip entry.
  • Snap ribs on to clip in order – 1-2-3.
  • Hinge next clip about trailing edge of the first sheet, allowing it to fall to the purlin. Ensure correct fitting to the deck edge and that it is sitting on the extended tail of the preceding clip. Align fixing holes together then fasten clip to purlin as before.
  • Continue to lay sheets as before. From time to time measure coverage of sheets at ridge and eaves to maintain squareness.
  • At end of purlin cut fixing clip (and, if necessary, the roof sheet) to suit.
  • Turn up ends of sheet at ridge and turn down eaves ends into gutters using the Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® Concealed Fixed Decking turn up/down tool.
  • Secure leading and trailing edge of the roof with a full or cut-back clip, or sealed fasteners through the roof tray, at every purlin. Cover these with side flashings. Install all flashings as required to weatherproof and complete the roof.
  • Clean the roof after each day’s work, removing all screws, cuttings, swarf etc, and leave roof clean and watertight. Repair any minor blemishes in colour coated finishes with Stramit supplied touch-up paint.
  • Each clip box has an illustration of the basic clip fixing technique. A more detailed Installation Procedure leaflet (with clear illustrations) is available to assist fixers on site. Ask for a copy to be sent with your order.

For use in conjunction with Stramit FarLap® joint system, Stramit Skylap® joint is only suitable for the fibreglass over fibreglass joint and the edge joint of the fibreglass over Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® decking joint.

Fibreglass sheet overlaps should be a minimum of 350mm as per the normal Stramit FarLap® recommendations. Stramit's Skylap® documentation outlines installation instructions.

Free underlap sheet edges may be encountered when using translucent sheeting, may need additional support. Use a 40mm x 40mm x 1.0mm trim angle beneath the underlap and screwed to the purlins if spans exceed 1500mm for 0.42BMT, and 2000 for 0.48BMT.

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.
