Application techniques

Covering solutions with seaming

Seaming is the most used joining system for roof coverings.
With mechanical profiling and seaming, it is possible to obtain high optic quality and uniformity in the construction of the longitudinal conjunctions.

Gradient step

The gradient step requires the construction of wall structure (toothed joint ≥70mm).

By using sheathing, it is possible to lower the necessary slope of the longitudinal and transversal seams. 

Examples of roof zinc cladding systems with zintek®

Roof with exposed beams
The insulating layer is laid on the beams and forms a continuous structure under the roof covering. This prevents the formation of thermal bridges between the beams. This type of beam insulation is a good solution for new buildings or newly built roof coverings.

Roof with concrete ceiling
The insulating layer is laid onto the concrete ceiling, forming a continuous cover directly under the roof covering. 

Ridge/hip rafter structure

These joints must comply with various types of requirements:

the shape and size must correspond to the roof’s general framework. 

rear ventilation: 
in ventilated structures, the ridge / hip rafter are critical ventilation points. 

the model should prevent the penetration of sleet.
