AVAILABLE IN LENGTHS FROM 1 METRE UP TO 12 METRES LONG
The Phoenix Steels Tile Form roofing System is a practical decision both for new and refurbishment projects, which also fits in its environment and looks elegant. For the understructure, only a lightweight batten/purling assembly is required. In refurbished buildings this is an essential benefit, and it also reduces the total cost of the roofing project.
The unique high-capacity drainage channel on every tile sheet guarantees the water tightness even in stormy weather. There is no need for sidelap sealing. This also contributes to the versatility of the Phoenix systems plus its overall economy. Cross profiles have a dampening effect to reduce noise to a minimum.
The sheets are easy to handle, weighing only 7Kg/sq.m. Installation does not require special tools nor special practice further savings are possible due to easy installation. For fastening, self-drilling screws are recommended to eliminate pre-drilling of sheets. The roof systems is ordered cut-to-length, ready for installation with no on-site cuttings required. This also means savings because no waste material arises. Maintenance requirements are minimal. Touch-up paint is available for visual reparations. However, minor scratches do not affect the durability of the roofing itself.
DURABLE COATED STEEL
The raw material for PHOENIX tile sheetings. organic coated steel, features the best properties of two excellent materials, the strength and toughness off steel and the appearance and anticorrosive properties of the coating which may is PVC (Plastisol). The sheets’ steel core is surfaced with many protective layers. It is hot dip galvanised on both sides. The colour surface is incorporated as part of the manufacturing process, so no surface treatment is necessary at the installation stage. As a roofing material, coated steel has outstanding characteristics. PHOENIX tile sheets are unaffected by cold weather or by heat waves. Snow will not build up, nor does seeping melting snow occur. Moss, lichen and leaves do not easily adhere to the roof. The tiles sheeting lasts well also in industrial and coastal areas with severe climatic conditions.
EASY TO INSTALL IN ALL KINDS OF ROOFING APPLICATION
- Batten assembly and Underlay. A lightweight batten assembly is adequate for PHOENIX tile sheets.
- Cutting. Sheets are supplied cut to length, but for pipes, aerials, etc it is sometimes necessary to cut the sheets on site. This is best carried out using anibbler. Alternatively a fine toothed sew specially designed for cutting steel sheeting may be used. Lengthways slits may be cut using plate shears. NEVER cut the tile sheets with abrasive disc type tools.
- Fastening. The Sheets are always laid at right angles to the eaves. The gable should not be used as a reference point. Every sheet should be fastened at once all over in the same way. The fastening starts from below at right and goes upwards to the left.
- Finishing. The roof is finished using matching accessories for a stylish and functional end result.
ELEGANCE WITH A HIGH PROFILE.
Minimum pitch 8 degrees Effective cover width 1030 mm Gauge of tile 300 – 400 mm (variable to suit) Maximum sheet length 10000 mm Minimum sheet length 1030 mm Thickness 0.5 – 0.7 mm Batten centres 300 – 400 mm (variable to suit) Translucent roof sheets available.
Fastening with screws ensures a secure roof. Self drilling screws are recommended. A thick elastic rubber washer presses tightly against the surface of the sheet to protect effectively the point of penetration. Tile sheets are screwed only through the bases of the profile pan. The screws hold equally well in dry or wet timber, and the roof will stay securely fastened for year after year. Screws are available in the same colours as the PHOENIX tile sheets. PHOENIX tile sheets may also be fastened by nailing with roofing drive nails grooved nails. Sheets are always nailed through the ridges. Sheets must be pre-drilled before nailing.
