The planks of ROOFTRAKÂ® are made from galvanised BlueScope Lysaght ZINCFORMÂ® steel conforming to AS1397-2001, grade G300, Z450 (300MPa minimum yield stress, 450g/mÂ² minimum coating mass), with a base metal thickness of 1.2 mm (2.0 mm is subject to enquiry).
ROOFTRAKÂ® walkways may be used in cyclonic and non-cyclonic areas. For use in cyclonic areas the roof cladding must also be fixed in accordance with our Cyclonic area design manual for steel roofing and walling.
Australian Standard 1657-1992 allows a maximum slope of 20 degrees along cleated or grated walkways. For ROOFTRAKÂ® installed at 90 degrees to the ribs, the side slope (pitch of roof) should not exceed 5 degrees.
The roof supporting ROOFTRAKÂ® must be verified to have sufficient capacity to withstand all the additional loads.
For ROOFTRAKÂ® 450 applications, approval from regulatory authorities must be obtained as it is narrower than the minimum provided for in AS 1657-1992.
ROOFTRAKÂ® can be used with a range of claddings. When used with KLIP-LOK 700 HI-STRENGTHÂ® and oriented in the same direction as the cladding, an additional stiffening plate must be included.
ROOFTRAKÂ® is supplied in kits that include components and fixings. The basic ROOFTRAKÂ® “plank” is 224mm wide. The ROOFTRAKÂ® 450 system uses two planks (total 450mm wide); ROOFTRAKÂ® 675 uses three planks (total 675mm wide). For further details of the kits available.
