Lay the plates: material

Plates, shores and ridge: the laying material

To cover the garden shed, you need:
- Banks
- Coaches
- Onduline® Universal Nails or Screws
- Easyfix Onduline® plates (81 x 200 cm or 1.32 m2 useful area)

Prepare the pose

The plates arise on continuous and discontinuous support

Determine the number of plates to install. Calculate the slope according to the roof support. If the boards are laid on panels or boards (continuous support) the slope is 15%. On battens (discontinuous support) it must be larger.

Ensure the security

Install scaffolding to work safely

Install a mobile scaffold at the right height for stable stand-up work.
Place the plates in the opposite direction of the prevailing winds. Proceed in the same way for the banks and the ridge.

Install a line

Tender a line

Stretch a line parallel to the roof, about 7 cm apart. To put it in place, press a long nail on each side of the cover bracket into the edge.

Put the plates in place

Install the plates from bottom to top

Install the plates by sliding them from the bottom of the support to the roof pitch.

Align the roof overhang

Adjust the edges of the plates

Check the alignment of the plates and adjust it with the chalk. The overflow must be straight.

Lay and fix the plates

Install the first rows of plates

Start with the first row. Place and screw the plates in the upper part of the waves.

Continue laying the plates

Install the second row of plates

Place half-plates to offset the second row.

Cut the plates

Cut the plates with the cutter

To make a straight cut, use another plate as a guide.

Bet on the recovery

Cover the plates

If you do not want to cut, cover the plates with each other.

Seal

Align the recovery guides

In order to guarantee a waterproof roof, the overlapping guides must be aligned.

Fix the plates

Fix the plates

Respect the order of fixation

The fixing order

Fasteners must not be covered. Secure the plates in parts remaining bare.

Fix the banks

Fix the banks

Screw the banks with the Onduline® universal fastening system.

Catch up with any discrepancies

Catching the gaps with the shores

Asymmetrical shores adapt to the plates. It is thus possible to compensate plate / roof gaps of 5 cm.

Install the ridge

Install the ridge

Place the ridge at the top of the roof, balancing on both sides. proceed

Seal the ridge

Guarantee the watertightness with the covering

For a perfect seal, the ridge elements must overlap each side of the roof by 12 cm.

Fix the ridge
