When using the sheets as wall cladding, a 12 gauge x 25mm Type 17 Hex Head should be used for timber battens and for steel purlins, a 10 gauge x 16mm Steel Fix Hex Head screw is best.
Cutting Sheets on Site
Metal roofing sheets should be placed face down on padded protection to reduce any damage to the surface. Abrasive discs should be avoided as they create large amounts of swarf and burred edges, both of which can cause ugly rust stains. The use of steel cutting blades, power shears, nibblers or tin snips are recommended to produce relatively clean, sharp edges with a minimum amount of swarf.
