Wind load calculation
Wind load calculations for flat roofs in accordance with Eurocode 1991-1-4, and using data according to ETAG 006 and EN 16002:2010.
Our wind load calculations take into account all the relevant factors such a building size, building type, openings, location, surrounding landscape and more.
We provide a clear and comprehensive which includes the roof fixing patterns for each roof zone, and for each component.
Rainwater flow calculations
Rainwater flowrate calculations in accordance with the UK design standard BS EN 12056 : 3-2000.
Regulations require that rainwater is drained from a roof within a certain time to ensure that the roof does not contain more water than the structure can withstand.
The correct spacing of the bar and bracket system is essential to ensuring the structural security of a rainscreen facade system.
The weight of the panel, the wind load, building size, building height and many other factors all play a part in determining spacing and fastener requirements.
All calculations are carried out in accordance with the necessary regulations.
Tapered scheme fastener selection
The varying thicknesses of tapered schemes mean that working out the correct fasteners required can be a tedious task.
Just fill out the form, upload your plan and we will get back to you with a list of all the correct fasteners and fastener quantities required for each insulation thickness.
Specific application testing
We have done extensive testing on our fastener products and are able to provide reliable performance data for most standard applications.
However we recognise that every project is different, and there are often unique fastener applications.
We're equipped to test the application in out technical laboratory or on site, if required.
When you order with us, our technical services come as standard. No additional fee.
