Roofing With Strength, Form And Function

Maximus corrugated has a timeless appeal combined with strength and versatility.

Adding more choice and additional features, this deeper, rounder, well-formed Maximus corrugated profile now provides the ultimate solution and adaptability to all steel roofing and walling applications, and is available in two profile depths; Maximus 22 and Maximus 33 in unpainted Zinc/al, as well as an attractive range of pre-painted colours.

Maximus roofing is made from high tensile steel, for strength and impact resistance, and provides maximum versatility, strength and reliability. With the stronger Maximus profile, Stratco offers not only market leading technology and product quality, but now has an extended corrugated roofing product range, offering maximum character, style and a long lasting appearance to all Residential and Commercial applications.

Available Colours

Custom Made For Your Project

For lengths longer than 1.2 metres, Maximus is rolled to the specific length you require, provided satisfactory transport and handling facilities can be arranged. If lengths longer than ten metres are required, consult your nearest Stratco for advice on handling and transport.

To give your roof a professional finish, painted self-drilling screws are available. Stratco offer a complete range of accessories and flashings for use with Maximus, and can provide professional advice on specific flashings.

Design Considerations

Maximus 22 has a 762mm cover in 0.40mm BMT material, 838mm cover in 0.45mm BMT material and 686mm cover in both 0.42mm and 0.48mm BMT material. The minimum recommended roof pitch is 3°.

Maximus roofing is subject to thermal expansion. The maximum length before an expansion joint is needed is 24 metres for light colours and 16 metres for dark colours.

Maintenance Requirements

The performance of Maximus over time depends on its correct application and maintenance. Maintenance should be performed as often as is required to remove any dirt, salt and pollutants. Where Maximus is used in severely corrosive environments, cleaning should be performed more often. It is important that screws have the same life expectancy as the Maximus cladding you have specified.

Packs of Maximus should always be kept dry and stored above ground level while on site. If the sheets have become wet, they should be separated, wiped and placed in the open to dry.

Refer to the Stratco 'Selection, Use and Maintenance' brochure, for more detailed information about the correct use and maintenance of this product.

Ordering Maximus 22

Sheets are available custom cut, allowing you to minimise waste, and enhance your design options. Maximus is available in un-painted zinc/al, and in an attractive range of factory pre-painted colours. Subject to the delivery location, quantity and material availability, delivery is usually within 48 hours, or at an agreed time that suits your building schedule. Unless advised differently, a one tonne maximum is usually applied to larger packs. Arrangements for unloading the truck are the responsibility of the customer, and should be arranged before ordering. When unloading you must ensure the load is adequately spread using spreaders and slings to prevent damage. If packs are to be loaded above structural members, they must be of sufficient strength, such as over portal frames, or braced roof trusses.

Note: 2° roof slope only suitable for open carport and verandah applications (ie. units not enclosed by peripheral walls).
The peak rainfall intensities shown represent a 100 year average recurrence interval (ARI) for a five minute rainfall duration.
If roof penetrations exist, the actual roof run will typically be larger than the distance from ridge to eaves due to penetration/s interfering with the runoff. Contact Stratco if further advice is required.

Fixing Recommendations

Maximus sheets should be laid into the prevailing wind and sit neatly on the preceding roof sheet with a side lap as shown in the fastener positions detail below. They should be fixed within the recommended support spacings. Avoid 'stretching' the width of the sheet when installing, as this could allow wind and rain to enter. Side lap fixing is recommended to maintain a weather proof seal and to secure the overlap especially when the roof is walked on occasionally. This is best done with either 8 x 12mm self drilling stitching screws or a 3.2mm blind rivet (rivets should be sealed to prevent water penetration). It is recommended side lap fasteners are secured at maximum 900mm centres for roofing and 1200mm centres for walling. On roofing, at the high end of the sheets, the valleys of each corrugation should be turned up at crest using a turn up tool.

Walking On Maximus

Stratco recommend foot traffic is kept to purlins for safety and to avoid damage during maintenance. When walking on a roof, wear flat, rubber soled shoes and walk flat footed spreading your weight over as many corrugations as possible. For carport and verandah applications, use crawl boards to avoid damage during installation and maintenance.

Using Maximus

Stratco Maximus will have a long, useful life if used according to Stratco specifications. While roofing materials in outer urban and rural areas may have a life-span in excess of 30 years, this can reduce to only a few years in coastal and industrial environments.

Zinc/al and pre-painted steel should not be used in aggressive areas such as near swimming pools and spas. It is important that dirt, soil, compost, paving sand, or other materials which retain moisture are not placed against steel. Concrete should not be poured against zinc/al material. Check with Stratco before using in these areas.

Incompatible Metals

The best way of reducing corrosion is to keep incompatible metals apart. Zinc/al and pre-painted steel cannot be used with lead, copper and monel. Galvanised steel and pure zinc material can be used with zinc/al, but you must avoid water run-off from zinc/al onto galvanised material. Fixings such as rivets and self-drilling screws must be compatible with the material they are fixing.

Handling And Cutting Of Maximus

For safety, wear gloves when handling Maximus. Ensure your hands or gloves are clean, especially when handling zinc/al which can mark. Use a coloured pencil for marking steel, as lead or black pencils contain graphite which promotes rusting. Maximus is best cut using tin snips, but for larger cuts it may be necessary to use a power saw with a steel cutting blade or a power nibbler. Avoid using abrasive discs as they can cause burred edges and coating damage. Where possible cut sheets on the ground, and always clean off any swarf and metal filings progressively during the installation. Dispose of off-cuts carefully.

Insulation And Sealants

The use of blanket insulation is recommended in domestic roofing to assist in temperature, condensation and sound control. Maximus can be used with an insulating blanket up to 55mm thick. Increased thicknesses require longer fasteners and greater care when installing.

When choosing a silicone sealant, ensure it is suitable for roofing and guttering use and of a non-acetic, amine free, neutral cure type. Sealants that smell of ammonia, vinegar or lemons are not usually suitable.
