Insulation

Care needs to be taken when installing insulation with roof sheeting. When insulation thickness up to 50mm are installed the screws detailed in Table KK RF NC 001 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 the timber as much as the screws detailed in Table KK RF NC 001 do without insulation. For insulation thicknesses greater than 50mm 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. Please contact your local Fielders Representative to determine the most suitable spacer bracket for your project.

Fasteners - Clip Fixing

Fasteners must be selected to match the life expectancy of the cladding material. Recommendations from fastener manufacturers should be sought.

Only fasteners complying with AS 3566:2002 and those that are compatible with the roofing material should be used for its fastening.

Crest or Pan Fixing

KingKlip 700® can be crest fixed to timber or steel supports. Fasteners should not be located less than 30mm from the ends of the sheets. Contact your local Fielders® Representative for capacity information.

KingKlip 700® Installation Procedure

Refer to "Maintenance and Care" for general handling instructions.

PREPARATION

Before starting work ensure that:

  • check flatness, slope and overhang
  • orient the sheets before lifting
    • note the overlapping rib is towards the end of the building where you start
  • check that the overhang of the sheets from the clips, at both eaves and ridge, is not less than the minimum permitted.
  • the first and the last supports and clips should be at least 75mm from each end of the sheet to keep maximum holding power.
  • Make any necessary adjustments before you start laying sheets because they will be difficult to rectify later.

ORIENT SHEETS BEFORE LIFTING

Consider which end of the building is best to start from. For maximum weather-tightness, start laying sheets from the end of the building that will be downwind of the worst-anticipated or prevailing weather (Figure 1). It is much easier and safer to turn sheets on the ground than up on the roof. Before lifting sheets on to the roof, check that they are the correct way up and the overlapping side is towards the edge of the roof from which installation will start. Place bundles of sheets over or near firm supports, not at mid span of roof members.

Figure 1

Starting method 1.

Cut the 1st clip 25mm from the centre of the second tower (as shown). The first tower on the cut clip locates in the 1st rib of the first sheet (Figure 2) but you must fix two clips at the start.

Starting method 2.

The first tower on the first clip locates in the first rib of the first sheet (Figure 2). The clip fixes the edge of the first sheet.

Figure 2a: M1 Clip
Figure 2b: M2 Clip

KINGKLIP 700® INSTALLATION

Step 1

Lay and fix wire mesh to the supports and glass wool insulation in accordance with the appropriate building requirements.

Step 2

Position the first clips on each support by placing onto the support nearest the roof edge (Figure 3).

Figure 3

Step 3

Fix the first clip on the support so they point in the direction of laying. Ensure the clip is 90 degrees to the edge of the sheet.

Step 4

Align the clips using a string line (or the first sheet as a straight edge) to align the clips as you fix a clip to each support working towards the high end of the roof.

Step 5

Drive hex-head screws through the top of the clip, into the support.

Step 6

Work along the edge of the roof ensuring it aligns correctly at its ends in relation to the gutter and ridge (or parapet or transverse wall).

Step 7

Position the first sheet so that it overhangs the desired amount (usually 50mm) to the gutter. It is important to ensure this first sheet is placed square to adjacent edges (Figure 4).

Figure 4

Step 8

Engage the sheet with clips using vertical foot pressure on all the ribs over each clip.

Step 9

Fix the next row of clips, one to each support with the slots and tabs engaged. Be sure the clip is 90 degrees to the edge of the sheet. It is good practice to bend down the tabs once engaged. This can be done with the bit of a screw gun.

Step 10

As before, place the next sheet over its clips ensuring you also engage the edge of the preceding sheet.

Step 11

Accurately position the sheet so that it overhangs the desired amount into the gutter. It is important that you keep the gutter-end of all sheets in a straight line.

Step 12

Fully engage the two sheets along the overlapping rib. You can do this by walking along the full length of the sheet with one foot in the centre pan of the previous sheet and the other foot applying vertical pressure to the top of the interlocking ribs at regular intervals. It is important that you don’t walk in the unsupported pan beside the overlap (Figure 5).

Figure 5

Step 13

With long spans, additional care may be required to ensure the overlapping rib adequately engages onto the underlapping leg. Care should be exercised due to the potential instability of the side-lap when it is not adequately engaged (interlocked).

Step 14

Similarly, engage all the clips by applying vertical foot pressure to the top of the other two ribs over each clip.

It is essential that the sheets interlock completely. It is important that your weight is fully on the sheet you are installing.

CHECK ALIGNMENT OCCASIONALLY

Occasionally check that the sheets are still parallel with the first
sheet, by taking two measurements across the width of the fixed
sheeting.
At about half way through the job, perform a similar check but take
the measurements from the finishing line to aim for the final sheet
to be parallel with the end of the roof. If the measurements are not
close enough, lay subsequent sheets very slightly out of parallel
to gradually correct the error (Figure 6). Therefore, to allow this to
happen, flatten the tabs on the base of subsequent clips—the slot in
the clip will allow the clips to be fixed out of standard pitch.

Figure 6

FIX THE LAST SHEET

If the final space is less than the full width of a sheet, you can cut a sheet along its length and shorten the clips as appropriate.

INSTALLING KINGKLIP 700® WALLS

In walling applications, horizontal pressure will need to be applied locally to the sheets to engage the ribs. Use body pressure (torso, hand or foot) or use a rubber mallet if required. Care should be exercised due to the potential instability of the temporary worker access equipment.

To prevent KingKlip 700® from sliding downward in the fixing clips, you should pierce-fix through each sheet under the flashing or capping, along the top of the sheets.

The new KingKlip® system provides installers with quick and easy end joint/expansion joint solution.

FIX THE LAST SHEET

If the final space is less than the full width of a sheet, you can cut a sheet along its length and shorten the clips as appropriate.

INSTALLING KINGKLIP 700® WALLS

In walling applications, horizontal pressure will need to be applied locally to the sheets to engage the ribs. Use body pressure (torso, hand or foot) or use a rubber mallet if required. Care should be exercised due to the potential instability of the temporary worker access equipment.

To prevent KingKlip 700® from sliding downward in the fixing clips, you should pierce-fix through each sheet under the flashing or capping, along the top of the sheets.

KINGKLIP 700®

The new KingKlip® system provides installers with quick and easy end joint/expansion joint solution.

Insulation

Care needs to be taken when installing insulation with roof sheeting. When insulation thickness up to 50mm are installed the screws detailed in Table KK RF NC 001 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 the timber as much as the screws detailed in Table KK RF NC 001 do without insulation. For insulation thicknesses greater than 50mm 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. Please contact your local Fielders Representative to determine the most suitable spacer bracket for your project.

Fasteners - Clip Fixing

Fasteners must be selected to match the life expectancy of the cladding material. Recommendations from fastener manufacturers should be sought.

Only fasteners complying with AS 3566:2002 and those that are compatible with the roofing material should be used for its fastening.

Crest or Pan Fixing

KingKlip 700® can be crest fixed to timber or steel supports. Fasteners should not be located less than 30mm from the ends of the sheets. Contact your local Fielders® Representative for capacity information.

KingKlip 700® Installation Procedure

Refer to "Maintenance and Care" for general handling instructions.

Step 1

Fix the first clip, with the arrow on the clip pointing towards the area to be laid, perpendicular to the gutter in a straight line using the correct fasteners. Use a string line or the edge of the first sheet to ensure straightness. Care should be taken so that the overlap is facing away from the prevailing wind.

TEST: Installation Print Link

KINGKLIP 700<sup class='fm-sup'>®</sup> NON-CYCLONIC Installation Procedure Step 1

Step 2

Locate the first sheet above the clips ensuring that the overhang into the gutter is correct (typically 50mm). Push downwards on the sheet until the decking is secured at every clip. Do not use excessive force.

KINGKLIP 700<sup class='fm-sup'>®</sup> NON-CYCLONIC Installation Procedure Step 2

Step 3

Lap the next clip over the top of the male rib. The holes on the existing and new clip will align, and hook into place on self locating tabs. Fasten this first and then fix the remaining two holes as previously. Fasten all clips in this manner.

KINGKLIP 700<sup class='fm-sup'>®</sup> NON-CYCLONIC Installation Procedure Step 3

Step 4

Lay the next sheet of KingKlip 700® as previously. Checks should be made periodically to ensure the decking is installed squarely. This can be done by comparing the coverage at the ridge and gutter line. At the end of the purlins, cut the deck and the clip to suit.

KINGKLIP 700<sup class='fm-sup'>®</sup> NON-CYCLONIC Installation Procedure Step 4

Step 5

Turn up KingKlip 700® pans at the ridge line. On lower pitches, pans should be turned down at gutter line. Turn Down tools available at your Local Fielders Office.

Refer to "Maintenance and Care" for general handling instructions.

Preparation

Before starting work ensure that:

  • The supports for your cladding are truly in the same plane, this is critical if the roof slope is ≤5°.
  • The minimum roof slopes conform to our recommendations.
  • The overhangs of sheets from the top and bottom supports don’t exceed our recommendations.
  • The first and last supports and clips should be at least 75mm from each end of the sheet to keep maximum holding power.

Make any necessary adjustments before you start laying sheets because they will be difficult to rectify later.

ORIENT SHEETS BEFORE LIFTING

Consider which end of the building is best to start from. For maximum weather-tightness, start laying sheets from the end of the building that will be downwind of the worst-anticipated or prevailing weather (Figure 1). It is much easier and safer to turn sheets on the ground than up on the roof. Before lifting sheets on to the roof, check that they are the correct way up and the overlapping side is towards the edge of the roof from which installation will start. Place bundles of sheets over or near firm supports, not at mid span of roof members.

 

Figure 1

Step 1

Lay and fix wire mesh to the supports and glass wool insulation in accordance with the appropriate building requirements.

Step 2

Position the first clips on each support by placing onto the support nearest the roof edge (Figure 2).

 

Figure 2

Step 3

Fix the first clip on the support so they point in the direction of laying. Ensure the clip is 90 degrees to the edge of the sheet.

Step 4

Align the clips using a string line (Figure 3) or the first sheet as a straight edge to align the clips as you fix a clip to each support working towards the high end of the roof.

 

Figure 3

Step 5

Drive hex-head screws through the top of the clip, into the support.

Step 6

Work along the edge of the roof, ensuring it aligns correctly at its ends in relation to the gutter and ridge or parapet or transverse wall.

Step 7

Position the first sheet so that it overhangs the desired amount (minimum 50mm) to the gutter. It is important to ensure this first sheet is placed square to adjacent edges (Figure 4a)

 

Figure 4a

Step 8

Engage the sheet with clips using vertical foot pressure on all the ribs over each clip.

Step 9

Fix the initial overlapping rib of the first sheet using an ‘S’ clip. (For laying sequence, see Figure 4b.)

Figure 4b

Step 10

Fix each next row of clips one to each support by engaging the front of the clip assembly onto the underlap rib of the preceding sheet engaging the spur of the clip to the leading edge of the previous sheet (Figures 5 & 6). Be sure the clip is at 90° to the edge of the sheet.

Figure 5

Figure 6

Step 11

As before, place the next sheet over its clips ensuring you also engage the edge of the preceding sheet.

Step 12

Fully engage the two sheets along the overlapping rib. You can do this by walking along the full length of the sheet with one foot in the centre pan of the previous sheet and the other foot applying vertical pressure to the top of the interlocking ribs at regular intervals. It is recommended that you don’t walk in the unsupported pan beside the underlapping rib (Figure 7).

With long spans, additional care may be required to ensure the overlapping rib adequately engages onto the underlapping leg. Care should be exercised due to the potential instability of the side-lap when it is not adequately engaged (interlocked).

Figure 7

Step 13

Similarly, engage all the clips by applying vertical foot pressure to the top of the other two ribs over each clip.It is essential that the sheets interlock completely. It is important that your weight is fully on the sheet you are installing.

Step 14

Fit an ‘S’ clip at the last rib of the profile (similar to step 9 when the sheet was started). Both starting and finishing requires an ‘S’ clip.

Figure 8

CHECK ALIGNMENT OCCASIONALLY

Occasionally check that the sheets are still parallel with the first sheet, by taking two measurements across the width of the fixed sheeting. At about half way through the job, perform a similar check but take the measurements from the finishing line to aim for the final sheet to be parallel with the end of the roof. If the measurements are not close enough, lay subsequent sheets very slightly out of parallel to gradually correct the error (Figure 8).

FIX THE LAST SHEET

If the final space is less than the full width of a sheet, you can cut a sheet along its length and shorten the clips as appropriate.

Wall Installations

In walling applications, horizontal pressure will need to be applied locally to the sheets to engage the ribs. Use body pressure (torso, hand or foot) or use a rubber mallet if required. Care should be exercised due to the potential instability of the temporary worker access equipment.

To prevent KingKlip® 700 from sliding downward in the fixing clips, you should pierce-fix through each sheet under the flashing or capping, along the top of the sheets.
