Up to 24% less fixings
For a building of 12m ridge to eaves with 12m long panels with purlins every 2m (a total of 6 purlins and 7 supports) we estimate the need for 3 fasteners (following fastener calculation) at panel ends and two at intermediates based on panel & site specific wind loads.
With Quadcore® Insulated Panels you have 2 supports with 3 fasteners and 5 supports with 2 fasteners = 16 fasteners per panel. For a building of 100m long that equals 16 (fasteners) x 100m (length) x 2 (two slopes) = 3200 fasteners
With PIR Insulated Panels you have 3 fasteners at intermediates to comply with LPCB regardless of fastener calculation. Therefore the following would apply: 7 supports with 3 fastener = 21. For a building of 100m long, that is 21 (fasteners) x 100m (length) x 2 (slopes)= 4200 fasteners
A saving of 1000 fasteners or 24% reduction through the use of Quadcore® due to its stability in the LPCB fire test.
