ALTRIX ALLOY BEAMS (840mm DEEP, 790mm C/C)

Manufactured from EN AW 6082 T6  Alloy, these form the main structural member of the ALTRIX roof.  These beams have consistent nodal spacing, so that neighbouring spans can be made up from a differing combination of lengths.  The verticals are always in the same location when viewed from the side, allowing the horizontal and plan bracing to be perfectly consistent.

Lengths are joined using special six hole spigots and Grade 8.8 steel quick release pins or locking nuts & bolts.

Special ridge beams are used to connect two elevations at the apex of the roof.

Length and Weight:

6.0m – 34.66kg
5.0m – 29.12kg
4.0m – 23.60kg
3.0m – 18.10kg
2.0m – 12.53kg
1.0m – 7.00kg
18˚ Ridge – 10.40kg
36˚ Ridge – 13.97kg

BEAM SPIGOTS

A six hole spigot, used in conjunction with 12mm quick release pins (or M12 x 60 bolts and nuts), to connect differing lengths of ALTRIX beams, ridge beams and eaves beams to one another.  Two spigots are required per beam joint.

Weight:

0.72kg

QUICK RELEASE PINS / RIDGE QUICK RELEASE PINS

12mm quick release pins are used, in conjunction with the six hole Beam Spigot, to connect differing lengths of ALTRIX beams, ridge beams and eaves beams to one another.  Six pins are required per spigot, twelve per joint.

Special M12 x 70mm quick release pins are used to fix the ridge sheet tracks to the ridge beams.

Weight:

0.07kg
0.10kg (ridge)

BRACE FRAMES

Used to connect two adjacent beam lines (trusses) together, these are attached to the vertical posts of the beams at 2.0m centres using a special claw casting.  The frequency of brace frame bays is dependent on a number of factors:

  • Span required
  • Erection by hand or crane
  • Location of roof
  • Imposed loads

Please refer to the user guide for the frequency of brace frames.

Length and Weight:

3.0m – 10.50kg
2.5m – 9.20kg
2.0m – 7.80kg
1.5m – 6.50kg

HORIZONTAL BRACE

Used to connect two adjacent beam lines (trusses) together, attached to the top and bottom chords of the beams.  Ends include a special claw casting with track button.  The frequency of horizontal brace is dependent on a number of factors:

  • Fixed to top or bottom chord
  • Span required
  • Erection by hand or crane
  • Location of roof
  • Imposed loads

Please refer to the user guide for the frequency of horizontal brace.

Length and Weight:

3.0m – 4.17kg
2.5m – 3.66kg
2.0m – 3.15kg
1.5m – 2.64kg

PLAN (DIAGONAL) BRACE

These components are attached diagonally between the top of the vertical posts of the ALTRIX beams, at the position of the brace frames.  Ends include a special claw casting, facing opposing directions.  The frequency of plan brace is dependent on a number of factors:

  • Fixed to top or bottom chord
  • Span required
  • Erection by hand or crane
  • Location of roof
  • Imposed loads

Please refer to the user guide for the frequency of horizontal brace.

Length and Weight:

3.0m x 1.0m – 4.18kg
3.0m x 2.0m – 4.63kg
2.5m x 1.0m – 3.71kg
2.5m x 2.0m – 4.22kg
2.0m x 1.0m – 3.25kg
2.0m x 2.0m – 3.84kg
1.5m x 1.0m – 2.81kg
1.5m x 2.0m – 3.51kg

ROLLER BRACE

Links adjacent beam lines (trusses) at the ridge and at eaves level.  End hooks locate corresponding sockets on ridge / eaves beam; track compressor; or intermediate roller brace coupler.  The roller action aids sheet installation and tensioning.

Length and Weight:

3.0m – 13.60kg
2.5m – 11.40kg
2.0m – 8.80kg
1.5m – 6.10kg

SHEET & RIDGE SHEET TRACKS

This component provides the guide track and support for the sheeting and is located on top of each beam line, via the track buttons on the horizontal brace.

Either 18° or 36°, the ridge sheet tracks are attached to the top of the corresponding ridge beams, to provide the guide track and support for the sheeting at the ridge.
Attachment is via the incorporated fixing plates and special ridge quick release pins.

Length and Weight:

5.0m – 8.90kg
4.0m – 7.10kg
3.0m – 5.30kg
2.0m – 3.50kg
18˚ Ridge – 3.70kg
36˚ Ridge – 4.70kg

TRACK SPIGOT INCLUDING GASKET

Used to join and seal the successive lengths of sheet tracks.  Special design helps prevent the twisting of tracks at the joint, keeping the integrity of the seal intact.

Weight:

0.26kg

TRACK COMPRESSOR

Positioned within the top chord of the ALTRIX Beam at the eaves, and fixed in position with a quick release pin, this component tensions the sheet tracks and has location sockets for the roller brace.

Weight:

1.09kg

SHEET TENSION BARS

These components slide through the pockets in the ends of the sheeting to enable tensioning and fixing.

Length and Weight:

3.0m – 12.53kg
2.5m – 10.35kg
2.0m – 8.16kg
1.5m – 5.98kg

HEAVY DUTY RATCHET STRAPS

Used in conjunction with the sheet tension bars, these 2.0m long ratchet straps secure and tension the roof sheeting, to the supporting structure at the eaves.  They have a safe working load of 1000kg and a total of eight are required per sheet, four at each eaves position.

Weight:

0.52kg

product image

SHEET PULL BAR ASSEMBLY

Inserted through the sheet tension bar at one side of the sheet, the nylon wheels of the assembly are positioned on top of the sheet tracks at either side, guiding the sheet smoothly over the roof.  This component is variable in size, only one is required per roof, and is simply removed once sheet is installed.

Weight:

8.20kg

ROOF SHEETING

This 610gsm flame retardant sheeting comes complete with Keder beading to both the left and right hand edges, for location into the sheet tracks.  Pockets are positioned at each end to receive the Sheet Tension Bars.

Standard sheets come in 1.5m, 2.0m, 2.5m and 3.0m widths, in lengths from 10.0m to 40.0m in 5.0m increments.  Exact lengths can be cut, and additional pockets can be fitted, upon request.

Gable sheets and different grades of sheeting may also be available.
