How is the NOVALINE® Fascia system attached?
The NOVALINE® Fascia system has one style clip that can be used in all applicatons. This bracket is attached with 2 (minimum) screws to the base of the truss. The positioning of the bracket can vary depending on the soffit line and the roof. The recess lip on the bottom of the actual fascia carries the soffit between the fascia and the external lining of the building. The top of the fascia does not carry the roof. It generally sits 20mm below the roof underside of the roof line. Spacing of clips for sheet roofs to be 1200mm maximum, and 600mm for tile roofs.
Designing Roof Drainage
Correct design of a roof drainage system is critical to the waterproofing of a building. This is a task that should only be carried out by a suitably qualified trade professional in accordance with the BCA and Australian Standards.
In the design and detailing of a roof drainage system, consideration must be given to a range of factors such as:
- rainfall intensity
- roof catchment area
- gutter size/capacity
- gutter fall
- gutter outlets (sumps, rain heads, nozzles)
- downpipe size, quantity and placement
- overflow consideration
- material selection and
The downpipe size and spacing should be determined in accordance with AS/NZ3500.3.2:1998 National plumbing and drainage: Part 3.2: Stormwater drainage – Acceptable solutions.
