The profile of Steel-rib consists of 3 ribs connected by 2 intermediate pans.
Ensure that the tops of the purlins or battens are all in the one plane by packing or easing between purlin and support. (Not between purlin and clip).
For roof pitches below 15, turn the pans at the top of the sheets up at 90 using a turn-up tool. This prevents the entry of water which may be driven by wind beneath the flashing.
For roof pitches below 15, turn the pans at the bottom ends of the sheets down at 30 to prevent water running back along the underside of the sheet.

When screw fixing every rib on every batten should be fastened with 14 x 75 for timber and 14 x 65 for metal.
Wear soft soled shoes which cannot pick up shavings to ensure the protective coating is not damaged. Walk only in the pans of the sheets. Sheets should be laid in the opposite direction to the prevailing weather.
Each sheet of Steel-rib has an effective coverage of 500mm+2mm.
When the ribs of Steel-rib are snapped together an anti-capillary space is formed, preventing the entry of water. Because of the deep and widely spaced ribs, Steel-rib has very good water run-off capabilities and can be used down to roof pitches as low as 1 (1 in 60).
