Please contact us for more information about installation for your project

Mono-pitched applications:

Eaves

  • For pitched roofs above 20-degree fix aluminium angle EL17 to supporting structure with self drilling screws at 180mm maximum centres, or otherwise calculated.
  • Lay light panel units into angles and ensure joints are correctly interlocked. Insert plastics locking bars into joints between units.
  • Insert profile filler, reference EL136, between underside of light panel units and face of supporting structure.
  • When 4 light panel units have been laid, fix first 2 units. Place EL154 clamping washers over 2 of every 3 ribs in material and drill 5.5mm dia hole through material to supporting structure. Fix to timber with 5 x 100mm woodscrews EL56 or to steel structure with self drilling screws EL158.
  • Lay 2 further light panel units and repeat procedure.

Verges and abutments

  • Place EL154 clamping washers at 600mm centres on final rib in material and drill 5.5mm dia hole through material to supporting structure.
  • Fix to timber with 5 x 100mm woodscrews EL56 or to steel structure with self drilling screws EL158.

Intermediate supports

  • Thermal movement of the material must be considered when screw fixing to intermediate supports. Generally, 1 of every 6 ribs is fixed.
  • If there are 2 or more supports, this fixing interval is staggered, creating a 'diamond' pattern. The fixing incorporates the use of the EL154 clamping washer with the appropriate screw fixing as stated above

Ridge

  • Pre-drill EL28 locking plate at the same frequency as required for the eaves.
  • Place EL154 clamping washers over 2 of every 3 ribs in material and drill 5.5mm dia hole through material to supporting structure.
  • Place EL28 over material matching pre-drilled holes to clamping washers.
  • Fix to timber with 5 x 100mm woodscrews EL56 or to steel structure with self drilling screws EL158

Barrel vault applications:

Eaves

  • Fix aluminium angle EL16 to supporting structure with self drilling screws at 180mm maximum centres, or otherwise calculated
  • Lay light panel units into angles and ensure joints are correctly interlocked. Insert plastics locking bars into joints between units.
  • Insert profile filler, reference EL136, between underside of light panel units and face of supporting structure.
  • When 4 light panel units have been laid, fix first 2 units. Drill through aluminium angle and secure units with M8 bolts at predetermined fixing positions.
  • Lay 2 further light panel units and repeat procedure.
