Stramit® Fascia

Stramit® Fascia 

Spans 
The spanning capability of Stramit® Fascia shown has been determined by testing (in accordance with AS4040.1) for a combination of roof tile and foot traffic loads. The maximum spacing of Stramit® Fasciarafter brackets is: 

- Where a separate tilt/roof batten is fitted adjacent to the fascia:
               internal spans 1500
               end spans 1200 maximum (200 minimum) 
Note that for a jack rafter to be considered as a support position it must be adequately connected to the hip rafter. 
- Where the fascia is used as the tilt batten:
              internal spans 1200
              end spans 900


Pressures

The wind resistance of Stramit® Fascia has then been determined at these spans by testing in accordance with AS4040.2 – and for each of the spans is suitable for use in areas of up to: 0.92 kPa SERVICEABILITY LIMIT-STATE, 2.25 kPa STRENGTH LIMIT-STATE.These pressures are equivalent to: N3 (Region A – rural, Region B – exposed suburban).

Installation Steps

Stramit® Fascia    

1.      Cut Stramit® Fascia to suit a straight run.    
2.      Position and level rafter brackets near each end of the run (ensuring correct eave overhang and soffit height) and fix to the rafters.  
3.      Slide Stramit® Fascia over one end and slide along to the other end (or lift over brackets).    
4.      Insert remaining rafter brackets at required spacings and fix to rafters.    
5.      Repeat for each straight run, and then attach accessories.


For fixing to Stramit® Fascia:     If using Stramit BAT® Overflow Clip* see separate installation leaflet.

1.      Cut Stramit® Gutter to suit a straight run, including downpipe outlet holes and end mitres.    

2.      If using pre-prepared or cast corners these are generally installed first ensuring the correct height to allow for fall.    

3.      Push snap clips over fascia at no greater than maximum support spacing for the particular product.    

4.      Push the back of the gutter under the snap clips to the lowest snap position.    

5.      Adjust the high point of the run to the desired position then apply the required fall (minimum 1 in 500) to the remainder of the gutter.    

6.      Attach a gutter stiffener bracket adjacent (within 50mm) to each snap clip.    

7.      Repeat for each straight run, and then attach accessories.



 

For fixing to timber fascia using concealed brackets:    

1.      Cut Stramit® Gutter to suit a straight run, including downpipe outlet holes and end mitres.    

2.      If using pre-prepared or cast corners these are generally installed first ensuring the correct height to allow for fall.    

3.      Position and bracket at high end of the run and fix to the fascia.    

4.      Position and fix bracket at the other end of the run using a string line to set the required fall (minimum 1 in 500).    

5.      Position and fix intermediate brackets at no greater than maximum support spacing for the particular product.    

6.      Hook gutter to front of brackets, swing into position and fold down bracket tabs to secure, then for each fascia type.    

7.      Repeat for each straight run, and then attach accessories.



 

For fixing to timber fascia using external brackets:    

1.      Cut Stramit® Gutter to suit a straight run, including downpipe outlet holes and end mitres.    

2.      If using pre-prepared or cast corners these are generally installed first ensuring the correct height to allow for fall.    

3.      Position external bracket at the high end of the run and fix to the fascia.    

4.      Position and fix bracket at the low end of the run using a string line to set the required fall (minimum 1 in 500).    

5.      Using the string line as a guide position and fix intermediate brackets at no greater than maximum support spacing for the particular gutter.    

6.      Place the gutter onto the brackets and secure in position by folding down the front (and back for some products) tabs.    

7.      Repeat for each straight run, and then attach accessories.
