Versatile is a premium roofing profile from Safintra Roofing that has the appearance of tiles but the strength and light weight advantage of steel. It is available in a range of colours and in various thicknesses.
Product Description and Features:
The roof shall be Safintra Versatile profile in 0.5mm Zincal® or Colorplus® material. The profile shall be roll-formed with 4 large corrugations at 185mm centres giving a effective cover width of 740mm and a step every 300mm to a depth of 26mm. The rib height shall be 25.5mm.
Roll Rop Ridges:
Versatile is sold as a complete system, with its own distinctive roll top ridges which are designed to complement the profile.
The roll top ridge is notched, to allow it to be bent into the tiles as a closure.
Purlin Spacing's are dependent on both downward loading and negative suction loading caused by wind. An engineer should be consulted to calculate your load (kN/m2) for your particular application.
Length and Roof Pitch:
When using Versatile sheeting, the recommended minimum roof pitch is 10°. Versatile sheeting can be ordered in any length, subject to transport limitations, up to 13.2 meters. Longer lengths require special transport arrangements.
ORDERING AND INSTALLING THE SHEETS
Versatile is a “handed” sheet, because the under lapping rib has a capillary break which optimizes its waterproofing performance.
FASTENING SHEETS FOR ROOFS
Versatile is pierce fixed to steel or timber supports. This means that fasteners pass through the sheeting. To maximize water tightness, always place the roof fastener through the crest of the sheeting. Always drive the fastener perpendicular to the sheeting and in the centre of the crest.
A standard lap is 1 flute. It is generally considered good practice to use fasteners alongside laps.
Safintra recommends the use of Fixtite® or Safintra approved Class 4 fasteners.
