CORRUGATED "DURABESTOS"

Asbestos-Cement Sheets and Accessories

for ROOFING AND WALL SIDING.

A PRODUCT OF WUNDERLICH LIMITED, MANUFACTURERS OF A S B E S T O S - C E M E N T MATERIALS IN AUSTRALIA SINCE 1918



This book presents, in a handy form, complete technical data to assist in the intelligent application of Corrugated "Durabestos" Sheets and Accessories to Roofs and Walls.

Two types of Corrugated "Durabestos" Sheets and Accessories are manufactured by Wunderlich Limited, viz.:—

DEEP CORRUGATED (5.75" Pitch)—Large Corrugations, and STANDARD CORRUGATED (3" Pitch)—Small Corrugations.

Roofing and Wall-Siding Materials for Industrial Buildings must possess outstanding characteristics. Apart from their primary purpose of shielding the structure from the weather, they must also be capable of resisting the various corroding gases, fumes, etc., common to industry, and the disintegrating influences of salt-laden air. Only a perfectly constituted material will stand up to these conditions. WUNDERLICH CORRUGATED "DURABESTOS" has for its constituents two pre-eminently indestructible materials —ASBESTOS FIBRE and PORTLAND CEMENT. During manufacture the cement-coated asbestos fibres are interlaced and built up in laminations into a Flat Sheet of the requisite thickness—the subsequent corrugating of the material adds substantially to its strength. Thus Corrugated "Durabestos" Sheeting is strong and possesses no inherent or latent weakness.

DEEP CORRUGATED (5.75" Pitch)—For roofing,, Deep Corrugated Sheets are recommended. The 5.75 pitch corrugation has been adopted, after extensive research, as that which gives the greatest structural strength to an asbestos-cement sheet (nom.) thick, whilst permitting the moulding of the corrugations to a large radius without distending or tearing the fibres at the outside curves.

EXTRACT FROM BRITISH STANDARD SPECIFICATION —APPENDIX "E."

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS — As large section Corrugated Sheets are considerably stronger than small section sheets, their use is recommended, especially for large span roofs and roofs on high buildings.

DEEP CORRUGATED "DURABESTOS" may be used on a roof with perfect safety with purlins spaced up to 4 centres. This maximum purlin spacing permits of the use of long


sheets, resulting in a minimum of end laps, less handling and fixing and a more economical roof construction. The large deep corrugations ensure a quick run off for rain water and minimise the possibility of driving rain entering through the side laps to the underside of the sheet; their boldness adds appreciably to the appearance of the completed roof.

STANDARD CORRUGATED (3" Pitch) Sheeting is 3y (nom.) thick, with 3" pitch (small) corrugations. As a roofing material it is fixed to purlins spaced up to but not exceeding 3' centres. It is particularly suitable for reroofing or replacing existing roofs of corrugated iron, as its adoption involves no extra battens or flashings.

As a Wall Siding material to a building roofed with Deep Corrugated "Durabestos" Sheets, Standard Corrugated ensures a pleasing contrast in scale, and for this purpose it is ideal.

STRENGTH UNDER SERVICE CONDITIONS—Both Deep and Standard Corrugated "Durabestos" Sheets have shown by test that they possess a wider safety margin of strength than is required of materials of this type and ensure continued protection even when subjected to service conditions that would not be normally encountered. Moulded "Durabestos" Accessories for use with Deep and Standard Corrugated Sheets, comprising Ridge Capping, Barge Moulds, Flashing, Skylights, Roof Ventilators, Gutters, Downpipes, etc., have received the same exhaustive consideration, both as regards structural and artistic design, workability and manufacture. Thus good appearance,. perfect fitting and a thoroughly permanent and weathertight treatment are all assured.

ROOF FIXING—Wunderlich Limited place at the disposal of Architects, Engineers and Builders the services of their Roofing Technicians, who will gladly discuss the problems arising in the designing of any roof or siding structure. They maintain at each of their offices throughout Australia a staff of workmen who are skilled in the proper application of the material, thus ensuring correct fixing and adherence to specification.

The Qualities and Advantages of WUNDERLICH CORRUGATED "DURABESTOS"

WUNDERLICH CORRUGATED "DURABESTOS" is composed of Asbestos Fibre and Portland Cement. These components, properly mixed and united, result in corrugated sheeting possessing unique physical properties, pleasing grey white appearance with permanence.

CORRUGATED "DURABESTOS" is:

STRONG.

Scientifically made from two indestructible materials, Asbestos Fibre and Portland Cement. The laminated process of manufacture increases the natural inherent strength of the components. The corrugations give high structural strength and maximum rigidity to the sheets, thus permitting greater purlin spacing and resultant structural economy.

FIRE-RESISTING.

Non-combustible; highly resistant to fire; will not melt, warp or buckle.

WEATHERPROOF.

Unaffected by the elements, water, air or sudden temperature changes. Dense, impenetrable; low moisture absorption. Does NOT contaminate rainwater for drinking purposes.

CORROSION PROOF.

Will not corrode, rot or rust under normal conditions. Salt air will not affect or disintegrate.

CONDENSATION PROOF.

Condensation of moisture under normal conditions practically nil.

SOUND AND HEAT RESISTANT.

Minimises transmission of noise from rain or hail and heat from the sun. Low thermal conductivity—cooler than any metal roof.

DUST PROOF.

When side and end laps are bedded on an asbestos bitumen compound, the roof is sealed against the entry of dust. (Victorian factory regulations do not require the roofs of factories—employing female labour—to be underlined if Corrugated "Durabestos" is used as a roofing, but insist that all iron roofs be expensively underlined.)

PERMANENT.

Material has exceptionally long life and becomes stronger and improves with age.

NO MAINTENANCE.

Once erected, needs scarcely any attention; no painting, no upkeep costs or replacement of sheets.

PAINTING UNNECESSARY.

No need to paint sheets, as natural colour is a pleasing grey-white.

ECONOMICAL.

Initial cost of material and of fixing is low. Available in a range of convenient stock sizes that obviates waste. Freight by both rail and steamer is comparatively low. Transports easily.

WEIGHT.    -

Light weight of material ensures a more economical roof structure. When fixed, 100 sq. ft. of Deep Corrugated Sheeting weighs 316 lbs. (side lapped 2”) or 360 lbs. (side lapped 7").    100 sq. ft. of Standard Sheeting weighs

200 lbs. (side lapped 3") approximately.

WORKABILITY.

Corrugated Sheets are easily cut with a hand saw, and easily drilled for screws or bolts. Country builders will experience no difficulty when fixing, providing the instructions contained in this Catalogue are followed.

USES.

Ideal for roofing and wall siding, also partitions in steel frame industrial type buildings, viz., warehouses, factories, wharf sheds, power stations, industrial works, pavilions, theatres, engine houses, hangars, garages, also farm buildings, silos, parking sheds, shearing sheds and seaside homes, etc.    .

ACCESSORIES in the form of Ridge and Hip Cappings, Flashings, Barge Mouldings, Ventilators, Skylights, Gutters, Down-pipes, etc., are available for use with both types of sheeting. See "Index" on pages 2 and 3.

For the convenience of users, and as a ready reference when specifying and ordering the materials, each product has been catalogued, the prefix No. D. denoting the accessories that are used with DEEP CORRUGATED sheets and No. S. those used with STANDARD CORRUGATED sheets. Items such as barge mouldings, ventilators and plain apron hip capping, louvres, etc., also roof drainage accessories such as downpipes and gutters, that are applicable to roofs or walls of either Deep or Standard Corrugated are all prefixed with the No. D. symbol.

In this Catalogue, the items shown on the various pages follow on in sequence. First are illustrated Deep Corrugated and Accessories, then Standard Corrugated and Accessories, and then all other accessories applicable to both.

How to Fix Corrugated "Durabestos" Sheets

Deep (5.75" pitch) and Standard (3" pitch)

Briefly, when fixing "left to right" take sheets (smooth side


WUNDERLICH CORRUGATED "DURABESTOS" SHEETS are fixed by the Mitre (straight joint) method, as shown in the illustrations on this and the next two pages.

"HAND" OF FIXING. In the following pages, reference is made to "right to left" and "left to right" fixing. To determine the "hand" of fixing, stand at the gutter looking up the roof slope, then the following diagrams illustrate:

up) with the corrugation turned down on the left side and turned up on the right side, and make mitre cuts as shown on the sketch A (opposite).

For "right to left" fixing, reverse the sheets (still with the smooth side up) so that the corrugation is turned up at the left side and turned down at the right, and make mitre cuts as shown on sketch B (opposite).

NOTE: Accessories that are fluted for nesting into the corrugations of the sheet such as fluted ridge capping, flashings, skylights, etc., must be of the same "hand" as that adopted when fixing the sheets.

GABLE AND HIP ROOFS. It is essential, when fixing Corrugated "Durabestos" to gable or hip roofs, that fixing be commenced from the same end of the building on both roof slopes so that fluted ridge capping (if used) will fit correctly.

MITRE CUTTING. Corrugated "Durabestos" Sheets are supplied with all four corners square. All necessary mitre-ing is to be done on the building site to suit the fixing and the side and end laps adopted.

Before proceeding to make mitre cuts, it is necessary, therefore, to decide:

I. Whether the sheets are to be fixed "left to right" or "right to left."

This decision is generally influenced by the direction of the prevailing winds and inclement weather for the side lap should always be fixed away from the weather thus:

2.    ON the side lap adopted. In the case of Deep Corrugated either 2" or 7". In the case of Standard Corrugated only one side lap (viz., 3" or 1^ corrugations) is used.

3.    ON the end lap adopted—generally ranging from 6" to 12" as desired.

For further particulars of side and end laps recommended, see pages 10, II and 16.

When the correct position or angle of the mitre cut has been determined, prepare a template of the mitre for convenience of marking off subsequent sheets to be cut. For cutting mitres in Corrugated Sheeting, use a hand saw.

TYPICAL MITRE CUTS NECESSARY FOR "LEFT TO RIGHT" FIXING (SKETCH A).

SKETCH "A."

SKETCH "B."

Below.—Detail showing set-out of roof purlin (or batten)



Method of fixing CORRUGATED DURABESTOS SHEETS. Straight Joint method, showing mitre joint and overlapping or sheets. For purposes of demonstration the illustration below depicts the mitre joint of Deep Corrugated Sheets (5 75" Pitch) with 7" Side Lap—left to right hand—fixing. When fixing Deep Corrugated with 2" Side Lap, the mitre cut extends trom the first corrugation only. Standard Corrugated Fixing is however similar to that shown in the illustration, as with this sheeting a Ij corrugation side lap is always employed.

MITRE JOINTS-DEEP CORRUGATED SHEETS-7" Side Lap, Left to Right Fixing (illustrated below):





(A) Showing sheets with mitres cut—the top left-hand sheet ready for sliding down to butt against the mitre of the lower right-hand sheet.

(B) Showing mitre of the top left-hand sheet butted into position.

(C) Showing top right-hand sheet (overlapping mitre joint) in position.

FASTENING: Drill all holes—do not punch—approx, sfe" diameter greater than the diameter of the fixings used.

For drilling Deep and Standard Corrugated, a A" diam. drill is generally employed.

Drill holes only in the    top of the    Corrugations.    One galvanised

screw,    one galvanised    washer and    one bituminous (felt) under

washer or alternatively one galvanised bolt, one galvanised washer and one bituminous (felt) underwasher, comprise a set—see page 9 for information relative to fixings.

When securing the sheets, the screws and bolt heads, also both washers, must be coated with sufficient of a bituminous plastic compound to effectively seal the hole in the corrugated sheet against the entry of moisture.

FOR ROOFING:

DEEP    CORRUGATED    (7M Side    Lap): Secure    sheets at each

purlin or batten through the 2nd and 5th corrugation crowns.

DEEP    CORRUGATED    (2M Side    Lap): Secure    sheets at each

purlin or batten through the 1st and 5th corrugation crowns. STANDARD (l£ Corrugation Side Lap): Secure sheets at each purlin or batten through the 2nd and 7th corrugation crowns. NOTE: Fixings should not be screwed down too tightly.

SIZE OF SCREWS RECOMMENDED:

FOR FIXING DEEP CORRUGATED (5.75" Pitch):

Use 4" x 14 gauge Galvd. Roofing Screws where three thicknesses of sheet occur.

Use 3^" x 14 gauge Galvd. Roofing Screws where two thicknesses of sheet occur.

Use 3" x 14 gauge Galvd. Roofing Screws where one thickness of sheet occurs.

FOR FIXING STANDARD CORRUGATED (3" Pitch):

Use 3" x 14 gauge Galvd. Roofing Screws where three thicknesses of sheet occur.

Use 2j" x 12 gauge Galvd. Roofing Screws where two thicknesses of sheet occur.

Use 2" x 12 gauge Galvd. Roofing Screws where one thickness of sheet occurs.

SIZE OF WHITWORTH BOLTS RECOMMENDED:

FOR FIXING DEEP CORRUGATED (5.75" Pitch):

Use 3i" Long where THREE thicknesses of sheet occur.

„    22"    „    ,,    TWO    ........

•• I?"    .i •• ONE thickness of sheet occurs.

ROOF STRUCTURE:

The Roof Structure should be slightly stronger than that required for a 24-gauge Galvanised Iron roof. Advice as to the suitability of roofing designs will be freely given by our Technical Officers.

LAYOUT OF SHEETS: Refer to pages 5, 9, 10 and 16 for particulars of sheet lengths available and to information shown below for maximum purlin spacing. Set out sheets to suit the length of the rafter plus necessary end laps and plus approximately 3" projection into the gutter. Sheets should be chosen of lengths that will give as few laps and entail the use of the minimum number of purlins necessary.

SPACING OF PURLINS is influenced by the layout of the sheets, with one purlin (or batten) in the centre or preferably towards the bottom of each end lap, and the intermediate purlin or purlins, equally spaced. Arrange purlins (or battens) at end laps to coincide with centre of lap of sheets. Battens to be provided for fixing hip or ridge capping.

WUNDERLICH LIMITED will gladly submit purlin and sheet layouts to suit the length of rafter involved on any roofing contract.

True Hips and Valleys should have the same sheet layout and the purlins or battens maintained on the same horizontal line to both roof slopes. This ensures economy, for portions of sheets cut at one side of the hips or valleys are then re-usable on the opposite roof slope. It is also necessary to provide trimming members between purlins or baitens at each side of hip ridging to support raking edges of sheets and hip capping, centring as for ridging.

GUTTERS should be placed in position before commencing the fixing of the Roofing Sheets or other medium.

MAXIMUM PURLIN SPACING (ROOFS):

FOR DEEP CORRUGATED SHEETS—48" CENTRES.

FOR STANDARD CORRUGATED SHEETS—36" CENTRES.

MAXIMUM GIRT SPACING (WALLS):

FOR DEEP CORRUGATED SHEETS—72" CENTRES.

FOR STANDARD CORRUGATED SHEETS—48" CENTRES.

Similar fixings are used for both Deep and Standard Corrugated Sheets, but on account of the greater depth of the corrugations, screws or bolts for Deep Corrugated are necessarily I" longer than those used with Standard Sheets. See page 7. Where bolts and clips, or hook bolts are used for fixing to steel construction, their effective length should exceed the depth of the purlin by 3£" for Deep Corrugated Sheet fixing, and 2^" for Standard Corrugated Sheet fixing.

FIXING TO TIMBER CONSTRUCTION:

ROOFING OR WALL SIDING.




See Diagram (I). Use Galvanised Roofing Screws of requisite lengths, together with Two Diamond Washers—one galvanised and one Bituminous Felt—to each screw. See page 7 for recommended sizes of Roofing Screws.

FIXING TO STEEL FRAME CONSTRUCTION:

ROOFING:

See Diagrams 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7. Steel Construction is usually in the form of Channel or Angle Sections. The sheets are secured by means of:

DIAGRAM (2) Galvanised Bolts and Toe Clips to Channel Iron Purlins.

,,    (3) Whitworth Threaded Bolts Igalvd.) to

drilled and tapped Channel Iron Purlins. (The necessary drilling and tapping is carried out by fixers as the work proceeds.)

,,    (4) Galvanised Hook Bolts to Channel

Iron Purlins.

,,    (5) Galvanised    Bolts    (short)    and    Gal

vanised Toe Clips to Channel Iron Purlins.

,,    (6) Galvanised Hook Bolts to Angle Iron

Purlins.

,,    (7) Galvanised    Bolts    (short)    and    Gal

vanised Toe Clips to Angle Iron Purlins.

NOTE: Galvanised Bolts, Toe Clips and Hook Bolts are supplied to suit Channels and Angles of various sizes.

WALL SIDING:

See Diagrams 8 & 9. Steel Girt Construction in the form of Angle Sections. The sheets are secured by means of:—

DIAGRAM (8) Galvanised Bolts (short) and Galvanised Siding Clips to Angle Iron Section.

„    (9) Galvanised Hook Bolt to Angle Iron

Section.

NOTE: As girts can be safely spaced to a maximum of 6‘ when fixing Deep Corrugated (5.75" Pitch) and 4' when fixing Standard Corrugated (3" Pitch), it becomes necessary when spaced at wide intervals, to clamp the lap edges of the sheets together by securing with galvanised lap bolts I" long. For illustration of this method refer to DIAGRAM (10).

EXHAUST ROOF VENTILATORS.

"Durabestos" Exhaust Roof Ventilators are sturdily built from Moulded Asbestos-Cement. They are permanent, for this material does not corrode or disintegrate under normal conditions. They contain no moving parts to wear and replace and are therefore trouble-free.


"Durabestos" Exhaust Roof Ventilators are functionally sound as regards design and operation. When fixed on a roof they provide a weatherproof air outlet that is highly effective under any conditions, but at the same time is sensitive to wind action for increasing exhaust capacity. The capacity of a Ventilator of this type to exhaust air depends on

(1)    Its location on the roof,

(2)    Its size,

(3)    The size and location of inlet to the shaft (preferably a bellmouth),

(4)    The area and position of openings to permit the inflow of air into the building such as door and window openings.

To obtain maximum exhaust capacity, a ventilator should be located in a position on the roof where it receives the maximum force of the wind. If, for specific reasons, a ventilator has to be placed in a position where it is not exposed to the wind, it will still be effective for the purpose, but the size may have to be increased or additional ventilators provided.

The size and number of ventilators to be used in any installation is determined by consideration of the area of the roof, the position of the ventilator on the roof in relation to wind action, and temperature differences inside and outside the building. A table of calculations giving the approximate exhaust capacities of "Durabestos" Roof Ventilators at various wind velocities and temperatures is available on application. The inlet to the shaft— preferably in the form of a circular bellmouth, rather than that of a square entrance opening—should have approx. 100% more area than the shaft itself. The provision of adequate openings at lower levels of the building, is essential to permit the inflow of air to ensure the proper functioning of the ventilators. These openings should be at least equivalent to and preferably twice as great as the combined throat areas of the shaft of all roof ventilators.

How to Fix

EAVES GUTTERS • BOX CUTTERS • DOWN PIPE


"DURABESTOS" EAVES GUTTERS


EAVES GUTTER JOINT.

"Durabestos" Eaves Gutters in 6' and 8' lengths are supplied collared on one end and plain on the opposite end to fit into the preceding length.

When proceeding to fix, the position of outlets is first determined from the position of drains at ground level. Allowing for a fall to outlets of approx. I" in 15', the gutter line is set out with a chalk line. Then galvanised gutter brackets are screwed to the fascia board to suit gutter lengths—approximately at 3' centre—allowing two brackets for each 6' length of gutter, and three (3) for each 8' length of gutter, one or two in the case of 8’ supporting the centre and the other adjacent to the collar end. Then place the gutters in position on the brackets, and assemble joints as shown above, care being exercised to leave an gap between lengths to allow for expansion and contraction.

Fix two gutter bolts by drilling through the collar joint at centre back and front. A round lead washer is necessary under the bolt head and a round bituminous washer under the nut. The outer and inner seams of the joint are then puttied and hot bitumen (not boiling) poured from one side to completely fill the recess formed on the inside of the collar. Clean off putty on completion.

It is essential that the gutters are thoroughly dry when sealing the joint.

IMPORTANT: On no account must the gutters be secured to the brackets or fascia, but must simply lie in the brackets and so permit of freedom of movement caused by expansion and contraction.

METHODS OF SUPPORTING BOX GUTTERS.


Brackets or other Supports are not supplied or fixed by us unless specifically included in our quotation.

Rubber gasket


BOX GUTTER JOINT.


“DURABESTOS" BOX GUTTERS are normally supplied in 8‘ 6“ lengths, collared on one end and plain on the opposite end to fit into the preceding lencjth, thus providing 8‘ effective covered length. Any variation in length required to complete a given run is usually allowed for by shortening the last length (stop ended piece at high end).

When proceeding to fix, gutter bearers or brackets of wood or steel are secured in position 3“ on    the low    side of the    collar and at    two intermediate

points in each length at    2' 6“ centres, and    graded to gutter fall. Always

fix brackets and gutters from outlet and work towards the high end. The lengths are usually manufactured with raking sides to allow for fall.

When jointing, place gutters in    position on    the bearers    or brackets, and

assemble joints as shown    above,    care being    exercised to    leave an gap

between lengths to allow for expansion and contraction.

Drill 4 holes for bolts through points 2" from the outer edge of collar— not through the recess—one each at centre back and front and two on the bottom of the gutter. Before screwing together insert a special rubber gasket between the collar and plain end of gutter as shown on detail above. To ensure a tight joint it is advisable to stretch the rubber gasket by pulling at both ends, whilst screwing down the gutter bolts. Then, putty the inner and outer seams of the joint and pour hot (not boiling) bitumen from one side to completely fill the recess formed on the inside of the collar, and seal in the rubber gasket.

It is essential that gutters are thoroughly dry when sealing the joint.

IMPORTANT: On no account must the gutters be secured to bearers or brackets, but must simply be in position and so permit of freedom of movement caused by expansion and contraction. In long lines of gutter, provide stop ends at, at least 75' intervals, and flash abuttinq stopped ends with metal saddles. Where box gutters are fixed against brick or concrete parapets or walls, overflash with lead.

Refer to the following diagrams for typical methods of supporting Box Gutters.


“Durabestos" Downpipes in standard lengths are supplied with a collar at one end, the other end being plain.

After determining the position of the stack, fix galvanised iron brackets to the wall by means of li" galvanised roofing screws, allowing one bracket to each length of Downpipe, placed immediately under and supporting the collar, and one extra length at the bottom of the stack to hold the last length or shoe firmly in position. See diagram at right showing brackets supporting a typical stack. Commence fixing from the bottom of the stack and work upwards. Secure the collar end of the top length to the gutter outlet with two galvanised gutter bolts. Seal the collar joints by pointing with cement mortar. Spigot ends are available for the junction of “Durabestos" Downpipe with Cast Iron Downpipes.
