More product information
Complex roof shapes both concave and convex in section, may be accommodated and a radial roof on plan is possible with specially manufactured tapered roof sheets.
EQC Standing Seam roofing is supplied in 0.9mm gauge stucco-embossed mill finish aluminium in a choice of material finishes including organic patina coating. Long-term durability and minimal maintenance are characteristic of the system.
The system assembly provides high levels of inherent sound reduction acoustic insulation and is particularly well-suited for educational, sports, health and public buildings. Where internal acoustic control is required, the system may be supplied with a perforated liner.
EQC can advise on suitable application and provide acoustic calculations for designers.
In addition, the system incorporates non-combustible elements and provided excellent fire performance and the benefit of reduced insurance costs.
The typical EQC Seam roof system comprises EQC MW5 profiled steel inner sheet laid onto steel or timber purlins with mineral wool quilt insulation and EQC Quattro support rail and brackets. The EQC structural standing-seam roof sheet is fixed to the Quattro rail using stainless steel halters. A comprehensive range of accessories for detailing at ridge, eaves and verge is available. The system provides for airtightness performance to comply with Construction Regulations.
