Typical Fixing Details

Wall construction of lightweight metal sheeted buildings is frequently un-insulated, leading to extremely uncomfortable working conditions or excessive cooling requirements. KIMMCO Building Roll can be fitted to new and existing buildings to alleviate these problems.

New Construction

KIMMCO Building Roll is fixed at the head of the wall and allowed to drape down the length. The insulation roll may be fixed to sheeting rails with the faced side to the inside of the building if no lining sheets are to be used or alternatively by trapping the insulation between external and internal sheeting. Spacer bars of non compressible material should be used to prevent undue crushing of the insulation.

Existing Buildings

KIMMCO Building Roll may be installed from within existing buildings by using a "T" bar suspension grid and liner sheets. The insulation can be cut to suit the size of lining sheet and fixed to the back of the sheet with adhesive or mechanical fasteners. The lining is then installed in the grid system in the normal manner.

As an alternative to the above, timber packing strips may be cut to suit the sheeting rails and screwed in place. Fix the building roll at the head of the wall by screws into the timber packer with a steel strip placed on top of the insulation directly over the packer. Repeat as required at other sheeting rail locations, ensuring that the building rolls are closely butted to each other with the edge flanges overlapping.
