Shell Erection

30x80x30x1.6mm galvanised ‘z’section are fixed to the edge of a prepared concrete slab using 8mm wall anchors. Joints between sections are sealed with a polyurethane 1 part sealant and flash band to prevent water gathering under the section. Wall panels are placed on top of the ‘z’ section and fixed from the inside edge with peel rivets; panels have a tongue and groove on either end and slide into one another to create a weather tight seal between panels.

30x43x30x1.6mm galvanised ‘u’channel is fixed to the floor using 8mm wall anchors. Internal partitions are slid inside this channel and fixed both sides using peel rivets.

Both exterior panels and interior partitions are capped on top using 30x43x30x1.6mm ‘u’channel fixed on both sides using peel rivets.

All window and door apertures are cut out using templates and fitted into place using the necessary fixings.

Roofing

Truss & Ceiling Type

Roof trusses, manufactured from lightweight steel, are assembled and placed across the building at a maximum of 1200mm centres apart. These are secured to building using hurricane clips which are fixed to the truss and wall u channel using 25mm wingtex self drilling screws. Top hat purlins are fixed across the trusses at maximum 1200mm centres apart ensuring there are purlins both on the top and bottom edge. 0.58mm gemsbok roof sheeting ISQ300 (Z200) roofsheets are fixed on top. Rubber polyclosures or steel flute closures are used under roofsheets and ridge capping to ensure weather proofing.

A suspended ceiling system is used to conceal the ceiling void. A ceiling grid is fixed to the bottom chord of the roof truss using steel hangers and ceiling angles to the edge of the wall. 1200x600x9mm foil back gypsum ceiling tiles are then laid into the grid to complete the ceiling.

Cathedral Type

A Lattice beam, manufactured from lightweight steel, is fixed to the apex of the gable end and spanned the entire length of the building. Ceiling panels, manufactured similar to the wall panels, are spanned from the fascia end wall to the lattice beam, these are fixed with 65mm wingtex screws.0.58mm gemsbok roof sheeting ISQ300 (Z200) roofsheets are fixed on top of the ceiling panels. Rubber polyclosures or steel flute closures are used under roofsheets and ridge capping to ensure weather proofing.

Electrics

All units are wired for connecting to a 220v single phase supply with the exception of multi span type units and on request. All electrics are in accordance with SANS 10142-1 and are fitted with earth leakage protection within the distribution board.

Electrics are run within the ceiling void and cored into the panels, PVC boxes are inserted into panels and front plates are screwed over.
