GreenCoat PLX Pro BT can easily be installed by metal workers familiar with the standard practices of installing hard-metal roofs using materials such as Zinc, Copper and similar sheet materials.
Panels (trays) are easily formed with standard profiling equipment and a choice of coil size is available to give seam centres of up to 600mm.
A unique feature of the material is its relatively low expansion and contraction ratio meaning that panels of up to 30m can be installed.
Whether it is a warm roof or a cold roof the clips used to retain the panels are industry standard and no structured underlay is required, a simple separation layer is sufficient.
The malleability of the material means that it is easy to fold and to utilise long-standing traditional metal roof details. Standard details (PDF or AutoCAD) can be found within the Resource Centre on this website.
On occasions where traditional hand-crafted detailing cannot be used GreenCoat PLX Pro BT can be soldered - see the Soft-Soldering datasheet within the Resource Centre on this website.
Aside from Standing Seams a variety of alternative aesthetic options are available including cassette panels, shingle tiles and sandwich panels. See Case Study area in the Resource Centre for cassette panel ideas.
