Fixing Information

Fixing

Phoenix profiles are easy to fix and should be secured using self drilling screws through the troughs either side of the lap and two fixings through the centre trough.

A full range of accessories including trims, gutters, fixings and soakers, GRP translucent roof lights in either single or double skin are also available on request.

It is important to ensure correct tightening torque is applied to the fastners.

Flashings

All flashings are purpose made to customers specifications in full range of colours and finishes in lengths of 2.45 metres - 5 meters.

It is advisable to specify welted edges for added rigidity as well as eliminating sharp edges, thus allowing easier on-site handling.

Flashings should be securely fixed using stitcher screws.

400mm centres on roof slopes under 15°. 450mm centres over 15°. Vertical flashings should be fixed at a maximum of 450mm centres.

For single span roof or wall construction, stitching should be maximum 300mm centres.

Overcladding

Phoenix profiles are eminently suitable for overcladding old or fragile roofs where the cost of removal and disposal would be extremely high, as often found with old asbestos roofs.

New 'U' Values - With the introduction of new 'U' values - .25 w/m2 °C, the standard may be achieved by using 160mm quilt when using a liner tray system or by 90mm insulation board when adopting a 'T bar' system.

Gutters

These are available in PVC, plastic coated and galvanised steel. Galvanised gutters, butt straps and top ends are made to order to suit various design requirements.

Galvanised - Where galvanised gutters are required, different shapes and sizes are needed in order to meet the needs of a particular building. All gutters stopends, outlets and butt straps are made to the customers specification and zinc coated to 275g/m2.

Internal Lining System

This is a twin layer system comprising of a top sheet and a white liner panel with mini z's providing the void to incorporate the wide range of fibrous materials currently available to meet the latest regulations regarding thermal properties.

A complete wall system constructed 'Over Rail' in the same manner as the roof construction, except that the outer sheeting is conventionally a 'reversed' profile which laps differently to conceal the join.
