About Neo Roman™

Neo Roman™ is manufactured exclusively by Fielders® and is available in a wide range of material including ZINCALUME®, COLORBOND®, COLORBOND® Ultra, COLORBOND® Metallic, copper and stainless steel. Neo Roman™ is installed on a ply substrate and in most cases can be installed to a minimum pitch of 5°.

Fielders® Neo Roman™ utilises the ancient Roman roofing profile to create aesthetically pleasing and functional roofing solutions. Neo Roman™ is available in standard 275mm and 475mm cover widths. The rib height of the Neo Roman™ profile is 25mm.

Neo Roman™ offers many creative possibilities with the profile being able to be used as either a roof or wall cladding. It can also be made with both ribs and pan (Figure NR ID NC 001) in the one piece or alternatively with only one rib (Figure NR ID NC 003). Both the single and double rib profiles come in a maximum sheet length of 4000mm with the double rib profile fixed through the crest of the rib.

Preserving Our Heritage

The use of BlueScope Z600 Heritage Galvanised coil (the old double dipped two ounce galv) provides the opportunity for architects to match, replace or recreate the roofs of some of Australia’s most magnificent old buildings.

Roof Cladding

When using Neo Roman™ for a roof cladding a plywood support must be provided. For pitches over ten degrees, in normal conditions, Neo Roman™ can be end lapped, in exposed situations silicon sealing of the laps may be required. Figure NR ID NC 017 shows a typical lap joint for roofs under 10 degrees (minimum pitch of 5°), the respective dimensions are to be determined according to the pitch of the roof and the relative exposure of the site.

Wall Cladding

When used as walling, if Neo Roman™ 275mm cover is utilised, there is no need for a ply substrate. However, the spacing of the girt should not exceed 600mm to minimise any oil canning. In areas where it is possible for the cladding to be hit, say by shopping trolleys, it is recommended that the ply support is used to minimise any damage to the sheet. Maximum length of the sheet is 4000mm.

Insulation

Care needs to be taken when installing insulation with roof sheeting. When insulation thicknesses up to 50mm are installed the screws may need to be increased depending on the thickness and density of the insulation. When the screw is properly tightened into metal there should be a minimum of three (3) threads protruding past the support being fixed in to. For timber the screw must penetrate into the timber by a minimum of 25mm.

When insulation is required in conjunction with Finesse® profiles Fielders® recommend the use of a thermal spacer to help maintain Rw values as well as minimising any bulging in the profile caused by the insulation.

Insulation blankets and batts can cause wide flat pan cladding to bow out between the supports, between fasteners along the support, or bow the pans. For insulation blankets and batts as well as more dense glass wool and rock wool, and thicker insulation, spacers are recommended.
