Impact

For wall areas likely to be subject to human impact, sheeting spans should be reduced. Impact loads will vary considerably and these are not prescribed in Australian Standards. A maximum span of 1000mm is suggested for such areas, but this should be adjusted dependent upon the exposure and importance of the application.

 

Installation

Fasteners

All fasteners should conform with AS3566 – Class 3 and be compatible with the cladding material used. 

For steel
– No. 10 x 16mm hex head self-drilling, self-tapping screws. 

For timber
– No. 12 x 25mm hex head self-drilling type 17 screws. Add 10mm to screw length for softwood applications. 

Side laps
– No. 8 x 12mm ‘S’ point screws or
– 3.2mm diameter sealed aluminium pop rivets.

Fastener Positions

Fix adjacent to the overlap and each subsequent rib (4 fasteners per sheet) at every support. Spans over 900mm require the sidelaps to be stitched at mid-span. 

For further installation information, please refer to page 9 of the Stramit®Wall Sheeting & Cladding Product Technical Manual.
