FLEXICLAD®1110

flexiclad_1

 

LYSAGHT FLEXICLAD® 1110 is designed to provide an aesthetic and economical solution for wall cladding not onlyfor commercial application, but also for residential and industrial application.LYSAGHT FLEXICLAD® 1110, manufactured out of high strength steel base, has an attractive shape and provides high strength at lower base metal thickness for wall cladding application.Features:
• Available in a wide variety of COLORBOND® steel colours
and ZINCALUME® steel
• Attractive trapezoidal multi-ribbed profile
• Quick and easy to install
• Specially designed side laps which makes it leak proof
Profile
LYSAGHT FLEXICLAD® 1110 is 1110 mm wide coverage
profile with nominal 11.6 mm deep ribs at nominal 222 mm
centre-to-centre with three stiffeners in between the ribs. The end ribs are designed for anti-capillary action, to avoid any seepage of water through the lateral overlap.

Material Specification
LYSAGHT FLEXICLAD® 1110 is manufactured out of high
strength steel. The coated steel is ZINCALUME® steel, which is
a zinc-aluminium alloy coated steel complying with AS 1397,
G550, AZ150 (550 MPa minimum yield stress, 150 g/m2
minimum coating mass) or COLORBOND® steel, a pre-painted
steel conforming to AS/NZS 2728 Type 3-4.
(Please refer to ZINCALUME® steel and COLORBOND® steel brochure for details)

Maximum Support Spacing (in millimetres)
The maximum recommended support spacings are based on
tests conducted in accordance with AS1562.1-1992, AS4040.1-
1992 and AS4040.2-1992.
Wall Span considers resistance to wind pressure only.
The pressure considered (in accordance with IS 875.3) is based on buildings up to 10m high, Zone 3 (Basic wind speed Vb = 47 m/s), Class A, Terrain category 3, K1 = 1.0, K2 = 0.91, K3 = 1.0,with the following assumptions made:
flexiclad_6Walls:
Cpe = – 0.80 (internal cladding spans)
Cpe = – 1.20 (single and end cladding spans)
Cpi = + 0.2
These spacings may vary for particular projects, depending on
specific structure characteristics.
Limit States Wind Pressures
The wind pressure capacities are based on tests
conducted at BlueScope Steel’s NATA registered testing
laboratory. Testing was conducted in accordance with AS
1562.1-1992 Design and Installation of Sheet Roof and Wall
Cladding-Metal and AS 4040.2-1992 Resistance to Wind
Pressure for Non-cyclonic Regions.
The pressure capacities for serviceability are based on a
deflection limit of (span/120) + (maximum fastener pitch/30).
The pressure capacities for strength have been
determined by testing the cladding to failure (ultimate capacity).
These pressures are applicable when the cladding is fixed to a
minimum of 1.0 mm, G550 steel.

*A capacity reduction factor of Ø= 0.9 has been applied to strength capacities. Supports must be not less than 1 mm BMT.

 For material less than 1.0 mm thick, seek advice from your
nearest Tata BlueScope Building Products office.
Adverse Conditions
If this product is to be used in marine, severe industrial or
unusually corrosive environments, ask for advice from
your nearest Tata BlueScope Building Products office.
Metal and Timber Compatibility
Lead, copper, free carbon, bare steel and green or some
chemically treated timber is not compatible with coated
steel. Hence, any contact or rainwater discharge from
above mentioned materials should be controlled.
Supporting members should be coated to avoid problems
with underside condensation. If there are doubts about the
compatibility of other products being used, ask for advice
from your nearest Tata BlueScope Building Products
office.
Maintenance
Optimum product life will be achieved if all external walls
are washed regularly. Areas not cleaned by natural rainfall
(such as the tops of walls sheltered by eaves) should be
washed down every six months.
Storage and Handling

Keep the product dry and clear of the ground. If stacked or

bundled product becomes wet, it is always advisable to
separate the sheets, wipe them with a clean cloth to dry
thoroughly to avoid product problems.
Handle materials carefully to avoid damage:
• Don’t drag materials over rough surfaces or each other
• Don’t drag tools over material
• Protect from swarf
Cutting

For cutting thin metal on site, we recommend a circular

saw with a metal cutting blade because it produces fewer
damaging hot metal particles and leaves less resultant
burr than does a carborundum disc.
Cut materials over the ground and not over other
materials.
Sweep all metallic swarf and other debris from roof areas
and gutters at the end of each day and at the completion
of the installation. Failure to do so can lead to surface

staining when the metal particles rust.
Sealed Joints
For sealed joints, use screws or rivets and neutral-cure
silicone sealant branded as suitable for use with
galvanised or ZINCALUME® steel.Non-Cyclonic AreasThe information in this brochure is suitable for use only in
areas where a tropical cyclone is unlikely to occur.
Ask for advice from your nearest Tata BlueScope Building
Products office on designs to be used in cyclonic areas. 

Fasteners

All the fasteners used for external application shall be as
per AS3566 Class 3 for general environment. Where
insulation is to be installed, you may need to increase the
length of the screws given below, depending on the
density and thickness of the insulation.
When the screw is properly tightened:

flexiclad_10• into metal: there should be at least three threads
protruding past the support you are fixing to, but the
Shankguard must not reach that support;
• into timber: the screw must penetrate the timber by the
same amount that the recommended screw would do if
there were no insulation.

Note:
1. All screws are self drilling, self tapping with EPDM sealing washer unless otherwise noted.
2. The number of screws per support are per m2 are only for guidance, based on support spaced at 1 m and wall 0.6m.
3. HG refers to Hi-Grips.
4. * – the screw quantity is based on an average number of screws.
5. Please refer to the above data for guidance purpose only. You may contact Tata BlueScope Building Products office for further information.
