Steel grade is G300 soft feed.

Fixing information

Care must be taken when fitting panels with flat tray pans to avoid causing dents and creases to these unstiffened and delicate areas.

The Minimum Pitch is 3 degrees for double crimped seam roofing applications. Double seaming provides a more watertight seal but results in a different aesthetic look. Single seamed fixing may be used for roof pitches greater than 20 degrees. Maximum unsupported overhang is 60mm for roofs and 100mm for walls. Do not allow traffic on completed roof. If required provide cushioned walk boards.

Drip edges should be formed at gutters to prevent capillary caused leakages. Pans should be turned up at ridges to prevent blow by.

Panels should be fixed to:


15mm CD grade plywood substrate on a maximum support spacing for plywood substrate of 540mm centers or for 17mm CD grade plywood substrate a maximum support spacing of 600mm centers may be used. All Plywood joins and edges must be flush and true. Uneven substrate may cause increased unwanted aesthetic imperfections to be visible.

A Breathable vapour barrier such as CSR “Proctor Wrap RW” for walls or “ProctorWrap HT-R for roofing” or Fletchers “Sisalation Vapawrap Metal Roof” should be fitted beneath SureSeam™ sheeting and laid over plywood prior to fixing.

The “sheet starter rib” should be secured with a 0.55 sheet metal over-strap which is flashed over. Alternately a full-length starter over-flashing may be fitted after crimping flat the unused male rib lip. Then the under-lap of the sheet has clips secured over and fastened to the substrate with two 8g-10x25 countersunk head screws with a minimum class 3 coating. The next sheet is then fixed with the overlap placed over the fixed clips and previous sheet’s underlap and crimped together with the Striproll SureSeam™ crimping tool. Remove strippable film prior to fitting panels.

Clips must be fastened every 300mm (or 20% for the building size whichever is greater) around the perimeter as defined in AS4055 and AS1170.2. (0.2 x Building length, not less than 1.2 meters). Clips may be fixed at up to 500mm centres where not about the perimeters if fitting to plywood. Screw heads must be flush with substrate. It is important to select a flat headed screw that will not cause dents to the sheet when fitted. For sheeting longer than 4.0m it is recommended that fixed and sliding clips are used to allow for expansion and contraction of the sheet. Fixed clips are to be used at high end of sheets for 20% of the sheet length for a minimum of 3 fixed clips at 300mm centres, then fixing with sliding clips working downwards to allow for sheet expansion.

It is beneficial to have vice grips to clamp sheets together at the lap to be crimped at the top of the sheets for steep pitches and walling to secure the loose sheet while crimping is completed.

Thermal Expansion

Thermal expansion of the sheeting is 2.9mm on average per 5 meters of sheet length for 50 degrees Celsius temperature change. No warranties against thermal expansion noise are provided. Using a quality vapor permeable water proof barrier may reduce noise from thermal expansion and contraction is recommended.

Some oil canning effect may be expected and evident in this product and may be caused by a number of reasons. For example, oil canning can be due to un-trueness in the flatness of the buildings substrate, turning up or down the sheet ends, handling onsite, inherent (expected) shape in the feed coil; this is expected and common in all flat tray sheet metal products is not a product fault. No warranties are offered against the presence or occurrence of oil canning.

Material Fire Rating

Striproll sheeting products manufactured from COLORBOND®, ZINCALUME® or galvanised steel materials all have an Ignitability Index, Spread of Flame index and Heat Evolved Index of 0 (zero) and accordingly may be used wherever a non-combustible material is called for by the National Construction Code clauses C1.9.(e).(v) and


Coverage: +/- 4mm
Sheet Length: +/- 7mm
End squareness +/- 1.5 degrees, +/- 3.0mm/300mm (some unequal squareness is inherent to all standing seam profiles)
Maximum sheet length: 10.000 m (Sliding clips must be used where sheets exceed 4.0m length.)
Minimum sheet length 0.900 m

Remove all scrap and swarf from completed installation to prevent subsequent Staining from corrosion.
