Which fasteners do I use for the corrugated iron?

Here at Metal Roofing Online, we only use and recommend Class 4 screws when installing your roof sheeting as they last considerably longer in the elements. However, in a standard roofing application, when fixing to either timber or metal purlins, we have in our range a Multifix screw which is the perfect choice for this roofing iron.

 

We use only the best 100% Australian steel for 100% peace of mind, made from BlueScope’s industry-leading brands such as COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel. And, of course, all our products are extensively performance tested, backed with the strength of the BlueScope warranty and can be relied on with total and absolute confidence.

Here at Metal Roofing Online, we only use and recommend Class 4 screws when installing your roof sheeting as they last considerably longer in the elements. In a standard roofing application, when fixing to either timber or metal purlins, we have in our range a Multifix screw which is the perfect choice for this roofing iron.
 

When using the corrugated iron sheet in a wall cladding application, there is choice between 12 gauge x 25 mm timber fix screws, when fixing into timber. Othewise, 10 gauge x 16mm will do the trick when fixing into steel.These screws are shorter as they are fixed into the pan (or valley) of the corrugation. "Cover of roofing sheet" : is the measured amount each sheet will cover (including side lap) when layed in position on the roof. IE the cover of a corrugated roof sheet is 760mm or .76 metre. Please consider both resistance to wind pressure and foot traffic for roofing spans. 

Please consider a couple of factors when deciding whether you need .42bmt or .48bmt sheets as roof covering:


Your batten spacing & How often the roof will be walked upon
 
The maximum recommended support spacings are based on testing in accordance with AS1562.1-1992, AS4040.1-1992 and AS4040.2-1992.

Roof spans consider both resistance to wind pressure and light roof traffic (traffic arising from incidental maintenance).
