5 facts that make Solar Compatible Steel Roofs Your Next Investment

Did you know solar energy is the cheapest and most abundantly available form of energy? It is sustainable, energy efficient and fastest growing alternate. In the next 30 years, average roofs with solar panel can reduce pollution atleast 100 tons of CO2!

That obviously means cleaner air for everyone.

The cost of installing a solar system is decreasing significantly over the last few years, in addition incentives offered by government as well as public policies are driving the popularity of solar. Roofing plays an important role in optimising feasibility for setting up a solar system.

Metal Roofs – Perfect platform for solar panels
With solar roofs gaining immense thrust, the most preferred system for solar PV integration is metal roof. It is natural for one to choose metal roofs for installing solar panel because of its service life that even surpasses the life of a solar PV system.

LYSAGHT® Roofs with solar panel

Some of the advantages of metal sheets are as under:

  1. Lifespan
    Metal roofs offer strength, durability and long-lasting performance as compared to other roofing options.
  2. Sustainable
    Metal roofing is sustainable roofing type – that can be recycled and reused; and is conducive to lower solar installation costs, which is important for buyers that value both environmental and economic energy efficiencies.

Explore how LYSAGHT LOK-KLIP™ enhances leak proof performance for your roofs!

Roof is one of the most important architectural considerations, as it protects us against myriad natural elements. Steel roofs are a design favourite of architects looking for durability, versatility and aesthetics. There are two main types of sheet metal installation techniques or fastening systems for a given project. One of them is pierced fixed roofing technique or concealed fixed roofing technique.

What is concealed fix roofing system?

Concealed fix roofing system does not involve piercing of the roof sheet and is fixed with a specialised clip that holds the entire system intact enabling a leak proof performance, which is well-fortified against external disturbances.

The clips used to fix this sheet to the purlins serve two purposes:

Firstly, they sidestep the need for holes in the sheet (which prevents the possibility of leakage through perforation).
Secondly, when faced with changing thermal conditions the roof can expand and contract in a sliding movement over the clips.

Features of concealed fix roofing:

  • Less prone to leakages due to absence of exposed fixings that enables watertight performance
  • Possible in desired lengths due to onsite roll forming
  • No-end-laps eliminate potential for ingress at laps along with accelerated corrosion

How Industrial Louvres induce Productivity

What would you do to be more productive? Simply open a window or a vent; and take a breath of fresh air! Absurd as it may sound, but true to its letter, fresh air improves productivity and your bottom line.

A healthy building is the one that allows better air quality for the people working in it.

It’s time industrial and manufacturing should recognise the importance of louvers and take necessary actions to optimize their air quality for employees’ health and overall productivity. Air-flow is an important part of any workspace system while keeping rain, dust and debris out.

Louvers play an important role in determining how we maintain our interiors more conducive. They help in maintaining cool and ventilated insides and keeps out unwanted water or moisture infiltration.

Threats that can result in heavy maintenance in absence of Louvers are:

  • Influx of dust settled on equipments or machinery, over the time can cause premature equipment breakdown and unwanted accidents.
  • Moisture infiltration can ruin interior surfaces and encourage mould growth.

Let us see how Louvers help prevent contaminants out of your industrial building:

You will find Louvers mostly in industrial and storage buildings. They comprise of the ventilation system on roof and wall, often required to reduce accumulation of dust, vapor and heat inside buildings to conducive levels. If combined with roof ventilators, louvers provide continuous circulation of fresh air, creating healthier environment for the building occupants.

Industrial wall louvers are used for mainly air ventilation, air intake, air exhaust, and decorative applications as well and are available in diverse range of performance and appearance possibilities. While providing fresh air, Louvers can also provide aesthetics to building design.

Industrial Louvers are packed with benefits such as:

  • Stronger: Industrial Louvers are much stronger than their commercial counterparts. Made of thicker gauge material such as extruded aluminium or stainless steel. They easily withstand the heavy industrial wear and tear.
  • Larger: Industrial Louvers are larger than commercial louvers. They also work in conjunction with one another. Dozens of units become placed in a row to create one long wall louver.
  • More Efficient: With the larger size of the unit, and the higher level of airflow required, industrial louvers are often more efficient than non-industrial units.

Designing Roofs for Low Maintenance, Cost Optimization and Error Proofing

What’s the difference between a good roofing design and a bad one? If you see from functionality point of view, a “bad” roof design will show results in no time. It would require extensive maintenance, it may falter on finishes and can show signs of leakages within months of roof completion. A ‘bad’ roof design will have poor conformity to building regulations, codes, resistance to external forces or even in-adequate insulation, making it energy inefficient. Between constant repairs and increased energy costs, you’ll land up spending your money maintaining the roof, then you did on its initial construction.

Roof systems are most critical investment not only due to their cost but also because of the valuable assets they protect in the long-term. Especially in an industrial or a manufacturing set-up where frequent maintenance can mar operational efficiency thereby affecting delivery targets.

While architects or structural designers are ready to embrace complex designs, the need for perfection is imperative right from the first design draft. With notable improvements in design technology and manufacturing processes; complex and unusual designs of metal roofs have become widely accepted.

Necessary conduits of design engineering:

No-one wishes to design a bad roof. However certain considerations should not be neglected:

  • Ensure a close understanding between a highly professional design team and the contractor to help optimize roof design, while minimizing errors during actual execution.
  • To address critical engineering challenges, use modern-day software. With precision, it helps develop robust, well-engineered and high-performance designs.
  • Safety too plays a significant part. Adding safety features like walk-ways, access platforms, safety nets etc. would minimize on-site fatalities and maintenance.
  • Use accessories that perfectly complement finishes for improving overall functionality.
  • Necessary arrangements for equipments such as wires, down-pipes for water harvesting, HVAC equipments, solar panel should be considered.

The above factors when combined, enables you to build roofing system that have long life and require minimum maintenance over the time. Accordingly, the role of engineering becomes very crucial in capital intensive industrial roofing!
