Australia’s leading PIR insulated roof and walling manufacturer Bondor/Metecno have launched a world-first roofing solution that will revolutionise the way insulated panel roofs are connected.
- Thermal movement allowance
- No sealant or butyl tape
- Fixed over single purlin
- Allows roof turnup
- Eliminates wind driven rain and metal-to-metal contact corrosion
The SecureLap® assembly’s flexible sealing strip is moulded to suit MetecnoSpan® PIR roofing profile. The primary fixing plate is secured through the lower level panel into the purlin while the secondary, sliding fixing plate is connected to the upper level sheet. This allows minor thermal movement likely in long panel roof runs. The compressive closed cell sealing system eliminates wind driven rain from entering the lap while lower level sheet turn-ups act as a secondary mechanical barrier to water entry, not available in current end-lapping options.
SecureLap® will eliminate issues with water entry, metal-to-metal contact corrosion and reliance on sealant or multiple runs of difficult to align butyl tape.
As a result of 18 months of rigorous testing, including weather testing to Australian Standards (conducted by CSIRO), SecureLap® now offers the Australian commercial roofing market real confidence around watertight security and meaningful material warranties. This system evolved from a local market demand for PIR roofing systems that are designed specifically to withstand the harsh weather conditions in Australia.
SecureLap® is an affordable alternative that allows connection over a single purlin, eliminates the need for sealants, provides the security of weather testing by CSIRO and is endorsed by respected coil supplier BlueScope Steel.
