Application

Shingles are normally installed to a ventilated plywood substrate, however other substrates can be considered. A standard range of details are also available, consult manufacturer for details.

Description

Coverings using small prefabricated copper panels are known as shingles. This method goes back a long way: some of these coverings were originally made with single lock welts. If one lock welt is used both horizontally and vertically, a single lock welted plain cover is formed. These seams can also be placed diagonally.

Features and benefits:

  • Manufactured from lightweight corrosion resistant phosphorus deoxidized copper (Cu-DHP, 99.9% pure) which complies with EN 1172.
  • Exceptional, indefinite lifespan demonstrated over hundreds of years.
  • The covering can be laid both horizontally, vertically and diagonally. This method is used mostly for facades.
  • The single joint means that a roof slope of no less than 25° is required so that the roof is made sufficiently tight.

Substructure:

Suitable substructure materials:

  • Ventilated 18 mm-thick weather and boil proof (WBP) plywood (standard).
  • Ventilated oriented strand board OSB3.
  • Hard metal board.
  • Composite panel.
  • Rigid insulation.

Applications:

Shingles are normally installed to a ventilated plywood substrate, however other substrates can be considered. A standard range of details are also available, consult manufacturer for details.
