Tile Gauge and Sheet Lengths
350mm is the standard tile gauge. Gauges can be varied from 275mm to 450mm to suit the roof area and aesthetics. The maximum sheet length is 6 metres. For larger roof areas this can be extended to 8 metres.
0.7mm is the normal thickness for industrial commercial and domestic applications.
0.5mm is useful when weight is a major concern, e.g. mobile homes and chalets
Only 10% to 15% of the weight of conventional tiles.
Thickness: 0.5mm Weight: 6kgms/m2
Thickness: 0.7mrn Weight: 8kgms/m2
The preferred minimum roof pitch is 10 degrees but with care, 5 degrees is possible. Can also be laid vertically.
0.7mm thick tiles will span twice the tile gauge. The standard span is therefore 700mm
0.5mm thick tlles require support at each tile length (gauge)
