ACROSS RIDGE INSTALLATION OVER 10 deg
THIS ARTICLE DISCUSSES THE INSTALLATION OF ROOF GRIP WITH THE WALKWAY PANELS BEING LAYED ACROSS THE ROOF SHEET RIDGES ON A ROOF WITH A PITCH OF MORE THAN 10 deg
When a walkway is required along a section of roof sheeting that is pitched at more than 10 degree it is difficult and uncomfortable to walk. Ideally the walkway should be level with the ground and this is where the Roof Grip LEVELLING BRACKET is ideal.
The levelled walkway will always positioned above the roof sheets but it may be fixed either with clamp brackets or bonded brackets. This choice will be determined by cost and the acceptance of the bonded bracket by the roof sheet manufacturer.
It may be necessary to place an extra bracket at the joint of 2 walkway panels (close to the H connector) in order to give sufficient support against bending.
