In order to correctly use the insulated panels, it is necessary to identify the most suitable fixing system.
The system must be chosen on the basis of the type of support structure, and is essential for guaranteeing safety, stability and waterthightness. The fixing system is generally subdivided into two categories: structural fixing and nonstructural fixing.
The first, fixes the roof or wall panel to the supporting structure of the building and must guarantee the capacity to support the applied loads.
The second, on the other hand, only fixes the tinsmithery systems or the panel sheets together. The place and number of the roof structural fixing elements is established on the basis of the number of supports, the slope of the pitch and the windiness, but must not, however, be less than 3 for every sq.m.. On the ridge on the roof, the eaves and any front overlapping, the fixing groups must be applied on allthe panel ribs.
