Apclad Hi-Ten is a modern roofing profile that is available in very long lengths. Made from Hi-Tensile steel, this profile whilst strong is also lightweight, that minimises sheet damage.

Apclad Hi-Ten is pierced which ensures easy fixing as this is the conventional method. Apclad Hi-Ten is weather protected as the side laps ensure maximum protection from the elements. The wide cover of 762mm allows for quicker installation, saving on both materials and labour.

Designed for almost flat roofing applications, Apclad Hi-Ten can be used on a minimum roof pitch of 2 degrees (1 in 30). Deep ribs allow wide support spacings and provide excellent water carrying capabilities. A pclad Hi-Ten is an economical and versatile profile, available custom cut to length and is ideal for both roofing and walling.

HANDLING
Care should be taken at all times when handling Apclad Hi-ten. Packs must be kept dry and stored above ground level, should the sheets become wet separate immediately and individually wipe and place in an area to dry.

COMPATIBILITY
ZINCALUME® steel sheeting is compatible with most roofing products. It is NOT recommended to use lead flashing/nails, copper or copper alloy materials with or in run-off situations.

CUTTING
Apex Building Products provides this service, however sheets may be cut using a power saw with a metal cutting blade. COLORBOND® steel sheeting must be cut with the coloured surface facing the ground. Ensure that no hot particles or debris come into contact with the COLORBOND® .

CLEAN UP
To prevent premature corrosion at the completion of each day ensure the sheeting area is cleared of all debris, including nails, rivets, rags and all cutting or drilling filings.

WALKING
Clean soft soled shoes should be worn when walking on sheets.

DELIVERY
Apex Building Products delivers to site within 1 to 2 days. To prevent any damage we require suitable arrangements to be made for unloading. Unloading by crane, ensure the load is evenly spread, if crane unavailable adequate manpower is required.
