What are temporary roofs?
This is a temporary sheeted structure that is designed to offer cover over an area to protect it against the weather or dust etc. It is erected using steel scaffold poles as the structure and aluminium tube beams for the roof cover, the design of the pitch is dependent on what space or area you need to cover but you can have a simple mono-pitched shape, apex or multi-pitched roof. Corrugated iron sheets are then fixed to these beams to create the roof covering. Also, for extra protection Monarflex sheeting is added to the perimeter of the structure.
What are the benefits of tin hats?
Many trades opt for a tin hat to be erected over any type or shape of building because it ensures that anything under that roof will remain water tight and out of the elements. Below are just some of the reasons why a tin hat is required:
Securely covered working area.
No project delays due to adverse weather.
Add privacy to your project.
Keeps a controlled environment.
Roof supplies we currently have in stock
Here are details of the roofing supplies that we stock below for a temporary roofing structure.
CI sheets (corrugated iron)
A corrugated iron sheet which can also be known as CI sheet or tin sheet are the traditional materials to use to cover the roof area. Once the scaffold has been erected around the building the CI sheets are then placed overlapping each other and secured to the roof trusses using a roofing coupler. These sheets can be re-used time again, but safety is always a must as they are extremely sharp, and we advise extreme caution when handling these sheets.
Used alongside conventional tube and board scaffold, aluminium beams offer a high load bearing capacity and can be used for the following: temporary roof structures, provide openings where scaffolding cannot be erected, mobile platforms, birdcages, crash decks and any type of scaffolding where a load is spread to gain access where scaffold cannot do so from the ground. They are available in various depths and lengths.
Scaffolding roofing coupler
Our roofing couplers which are otherwise known as “Wrigley’s” are what connects the CI sheets to the roof, which means you do not have to drill holes in the sheeting as they are secured using the couplers. They are made from pressed steel and zinc plated for extra-long usage.
Is another type of scaffolding system that can be used to create a temporary roof, it is simple to construct, and can be adaptable to all types of buildings or other needs? You can also use Haki staircases for internal areas of your temporary roof.
