BENEFITS TO THE ARCHITECT
I am thinking of installing Zinc, can GreenCoat PLX Pro BT be installed in the same way?
Yes, the installation process and detailing techniques are similar
Can GreenCoat PLX Pro BT be used on a cold or warm roof build up?
Yes, GreenCoat PLX Pro BT is suitable for either type of roof design. Please see our Resources page to download the appropriate brochure showing the installation procedure for either type of design
Are installation details available?
Yes, standard details are shown in the SSAB Cold and warm roof installation brochures, see our Related Articles. Additional details or AutoCAD (.dwg) files are available on request.
Some standing seam metals require special underlays, does GreenCoat PLX Pro BT require anything specific?
Special underlays such as the structured underlay often used with specific brands of Zinc sheet metal roofing are not required. A simple separation layer such as a mineral wool between the Prelaq and underlying support will suffice. This helps the metal move freely during its natural expansion and contraction with temperature changes.
Can GreenCoat PLX Pro BT be soldered?
Yes. Please see the datasheet on soldering GreenCoat PLX Pro BT in the Installation section.
What seam centres should I use?
Any seam center between (approximately) 300mm and 600mm is achievable. The most common is either 500mm or 600mm. Narrow centres such as 500mm are often specified on areas of higher wind loading (e.g. vertical cladding) or where a crisper look to the finished building is desired
