A Hi Tensile Steel Roofing and Wall Cladding, Apspan is a modern and attractive profile.

LENGTHS / TRANSPORT
Apex Building Products can custom cut lengths to your requirements. Due to transport restrictions it is advisable to check with our office the maximum length.

HANDLING
Care should be taken at all times when handling Apspan. 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 sole 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.
