Description

Rooftrak IFP-300 integrated fixing point system for warm roof constructions and fully supported membranes, provides a structural connection whilst maintaining 100% integrity of the waterproofing layer.

Features and benefits:

  • Designed for flat, pitched and vertical warm roof constructions where the roofing membrane or weathering layer is laid over the insulation.
  • Comprised of a 300 x 300 mm fixing plate and an anchor point with two M10 x 20 blind threads.
  • To weather the fixing plate, the IFP is factory fitted with an appropriate flange material to enable it to be weathered or sealed to the main roof area.
  • Can be fixed to structure using direct or thermally broken fixings.

Load ratings:

It is assumed that the IFP is fixed through the roofing membrane and insulation into the substrate below with 6 or 8 no. fixings and that the supporting structure has the capacity to support the design loadings likely to be encountered.

- Compressive load:

The maximum compressive load will be determined by the insulation manufacturers static load rating. Figures can be obtained from the relevant insulation manufacturer.

- Shear load:

Maximum shear load to be applied: 2.5 kN. Assumes the IFP is fixed with 8 no. thermally broken fixings to a roof or wall build-up of 18 mm plywood and not more than 200 mm of rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation with roofing membrane over the insulation.

- Tensile load:

Values vary according to whether fixings are direct or thermally broken, the number of fixings and the type of substrate. Consult manufacturer's literature for details.

Accessories:

- Direct fixing suitable for roof structure:

Direct fixing from plate to structural substrate.

  • Material: Corrosion resistant steel or stainless steel.
  • Size: 30–300 mm.
  • Suitable for timber, steel deck and concrete substrates.
  • Very high uplift resistance values: Maximum: 5 kN.
  • Low profile head.
  • TX25 drive.

- Thermally broken fixings suitable for roof structure:

Two part fixing comprising polypropylene tube washer and fixing screw. Creates thermal break between IFP plate and roof structure substrate. Only required for warm roof constructions.

  • Material: Polypropylene tube washer and corrosion resistant steel or stainless steel screw.
  • Size: 25–250 mm.
  • Suitable for timber, steel deck and concrete substrates.
  • Good uplift resistance values: Maximum: 4.1 kN.
  • Low profile head.

- 10 mm shim, IFP-SH:

Packing shim designed to fit over the anchor point where multiple anchor points need to be level. Can be used in multiples to achieve greater packing dimensions. Note that a longer bolt will be required to secure them to the anchor points: care should be taken in selecting the bolt length as the anchor points are blind threaded holes.

- Toggle fixing, IFP-TG:

For use in conjunction with the IFP-CN cap nut and M10 studding to secure the IFP products to the building structure. Suitable where the underside of the roof deck is not accessible or where the roof deck does not provide adequate pullout values using screw type fixings.

  • Material: Bright zinc plated (BZP) steel.
  • Size: 68 x 17.5 x 15 mm.
  • Typical uses: to obtain improved pullout values for situation such as fixing to composite panels and balustrade applications.
