Concealed Fix Roofing

BRC West Indies Ltd. offers two profiles in this long lasting, cost effective system that features concealed fasteners, the absence of visible cut edges, and an all round beautiful roof that meets and exceeds all expectations.

S2500 Permaseam®

Permaseam

Permaseam® (S2500 profile) metal roof panel is a 2" mechanically seamed structural metal roof system. Designed primarily as a structural metal roof for pre-engineered buildings, this Armco style metal roofing panel is the most extensively tested metal roof system in North America, with over 70 years of history in the field.

Panels may be enhanced with either of three pan profiles: flat, stiffener ribs or striations . Permaseam® is mechanically seamed with the 90° seam lock for increased strength and water tightness.

Permaseam
  • Heavy duty for commercial and industrial use
  • Can be used on low pitch roofs (Min. roof pitch 1.5°)
  • Unique heavy-duty interlock clips available to counter thermal effects
  • May be secured with bearing plates and clips through the insulation to a metal deck
  • Mechanical seaming provides increased strength and a water tight seam
Live Loads

S2000 Permalock®

Permaseam

Permalock® (S2000 profile) metal roof panel is a 1 3/4" integral snap-lock metal roof system. This metal roof panel combines architectural versatility (for cleanly detailed, continuous seam transitions from roof to mansard, fascia, wall panel or soffit) with the dramatically increased spanning and uplift capabilities of a structural metal roof system.

Panels may be enhanced with either of three pan profiles: flat, stiffener ribs or striations.


Permaseam
  • Medium duty for residential, commercial and industrial use
  • For use with moderate pitch roofs (Min. roof pitch 14°)
  • Easy and fast installation
  • Panels are secured to purlins or substrate by clips allowing for unrestricted thermal movement
  • Interlocking panel mechanism does not require seaming
  • Uniformed clean-standing seam profiles, especially in transitions between roof surfaces to mansards and fascia
Live Loads
BRC Information

Eave Gutters » (Click to read)

PermaFlow® Seamless Gutters

Permaflow Permaseam

PermaFlow® Seamless Gutters, also referred to as "Continuous Rain Guttering", are single-piece or continuous gutter runs spanning from eave corner to corner on the roof. They are typically formed on the work site in order to match the measurements needed for the particular job; from 12 inches to over one hundred feet. The gutter profile is an attractive "K-Style" or Ogee shape and is fastened to the eave structure with hangers that clip into the top of the gutter, appearing hidden when viewed from below.

Reports indicate that seventy-five percent of all guttering installed throughout the US is continuous. The product’s popularity is easily understood because of the following benefits:

Permaseam
  • Eliminates unsightly seams
  • Reduces the possibility of leaks
  • Is available in two Finishes:
    1. (a) 0.7mm Seamless Aluminum with a white baked-on enamel finish.
    2. (b) 0.60mm Copper
  • Utilises Hidden Hangers/Brackets
  • Is visually appealing and enhances the beauty of the home
  • Protects the building & landscaping by redirecting water away from the building's
    foundation and reducing surface erosion
  • Can be formed on the job site for exact measurements
  • Installations can be completed in one day for most jobs

Hurricane Straps » (Click to read)

Hurricane Straps ▪ Timber Connectors

Hurricane Straps

BRC Hurricane straps offer the best way to add strength to your roof as protection against severe weather. For a minimal cost, you can tie beams, purlins, wall and floor plates, rafters and studs into one solid, cohesive structure...and rest easy when the winds come.

Hurricane Straps

Rafter Connector 90° & 135°

These may be used to connect the ends of rafters to sides of ridge boards. When bent at angles other than right angles they may be used to connect the ends of orthogonal rafters to hip rafters in hipped-roof construction.

BRC Information

Permissible Design Load (unfactored): 3kN (670lbf) using 3.75mm nails and 2.4kN (540lbf) using 3.15mm nails.

Hurricane Straps

Rafter/Purlin Clip

As the name implies, these are used to connect purlins/battens to the main supporting rafters in roof construction. They may be used either singly or doubly at each rafter/purlin crossover. These may also be used to connect the ends of rafters to timber wall plates. Between one and four clips may be used per junction, depending on the uplift force.

BRC Information

Permissible Design Load (unfactored): 3kN (670lbf) using 3.75mm nails and 2.8kN (630lbf) using 3.15mm nails

Notes: It is important to use 4 nails per leg and to place nails in the holes closest to the inside corner of the clip. The stainless steel clips have greater reserve capacity (about 10%) of the design load.

Multi-Purpose Strap

Hurricane Straps

As the name suggests, these items have many uses. They may be used to hold down lightweight buildings onto their foundations; to connect timber stud walls to sill plates; to connect upper storeys to lower storeys in timber construction; and to supplement dedicated roof-member connections. Multipurpose Straps are available in two sizes 18” x 1” and 24” x 1-1/2”

BRC Information

Permissible Design Load (unfactored): 2.6kN (584lbf) using 3.75mm nails for the 18" x 1" Strap

Mending Plate

Hurricane Straps

These are used at supported splice junctions. They are not recommended for use at unsupported joints where it is necessary to transfer direct loads and significant bending moments. Their appropriate use is as an economical connector where the loads or moments to be transferred are much less than the potential capacities of the connected members.

BRC Information

Permissible Design Load (unfactored): 0.88kNm (7800lbf-in) using 3.75mm nails.

Note: This Mending Plate should be used only for nominal connections because the connection has much less capacity than the main members.

Truss Anchor

Hurricane Straps

These are used where roof trusses or main rafters are supported by concrete belt beams (also known as ring beams). The Truss Anchors are cast in the ring beams and bent over the rafter and fastened on both sides.

BRC Information

Permissible Design Load (unfactored): 8.0kN (1750lbf) using 3.75mm nails and 7.8kN (1750lbf) using 3.15mm nails

Moment Connector

Hurricane Straps

These are used in pairs at butt junctions in beams where it is necessary to transfer significant bending moments.

BRC Information

Permissible Design Load (unfactored): 2.5kNm (22,000lbf-in) using 3.75mm nails for a 140mm (5-1/2”) deep beam

Note: With this connector, the deeper the beam the greater the permissible design moment

Twist Tie

Hurricane Straps

Twist Ties provide a tension connection between two wood members. They resist uplift at the heel of a truss economically.

Purlin Brace

Hurricane Straps

For applications where the rafters are covered with T111 plywood or close board decking Purlin Braces are used to fasten the purlins/battens through the decking to the rafter. One brace is used at every rafter/purlin crossover.
Note: Designed for use with 2” x 3” purlins only.

BRC Information

BRC Hurricane Straps are supplied in two materials as follows: Galvalume coated steel sheet to ASTM A792M, Grade 345A, AZ200, in thickness 1.0mm. Minimum Tensile Strength of 450MPa, Minimum Yield of 345MPa with Elongation of 12%

Stainless Steel Sheet to ASTM A240-S31603, in thickness of 1.0mm. Minimum Tensile Strength of 485MPa, Minimum Yield of 170MPa with Elongation of 40%

It should be remembered that any structure or building, however well designed and built, needs maintenance if it is to perform adequately throughout its intended life. In particular, it is recommended that annual inspections of structures and connections be carried out in advance of the hurricane season so that incipient deterioration may be nipped in the bud.
