Large pitched roof secured on new school

Client: Wrexham County Borough Council
Location: Coedpoeth, North Wales
Reference No: CS022

The new Penygelli County Primary School is a single storey building with large pitched roofs situated in an area of maximum wind exposure. It required a reliable high performance fixing that would resist all loadings while supporting the laid tile weight of 50Kg/sqm.

Helifix Solution

  • Project architects for the design and build contractor Molem Plc (now part of Carillion) provided the Helifix Technical Department with drawings and details of the school's roof construction. They were then supplied with a fixing specification using InSkew roof fixings.
  • Due to its size and exposed location, the 2,300sqm roof, with pitches ranging from 20 -27 degrees, required 22,000 x 190mm InSkews to secure the counter battens through the insulation.
  • Stress-free stainless steel InSkews are driven into position, by hammer or power drill, with their self-tapping action providing excellent holding power in both tension and compression. They do not impair the thermal properties of the insulation, support heavy sliding loads and their high performance means less fixings are required.
