Dimond Veedek Profile

Veedek features clean straight lines, with an angled pan to provide a strong visual appeal with unparalleled protection against the elements. Adding interest and detail to your roof, it is a perfect choice for contemporary architecture or adding a modern look to a traditional design. 

Fastener Design

Veedek should be screw fixed to either timber or steel purlins. The use of the appropriate length of 12g screw will ensure failure by screw pull-out will not occur under loads within the scope of the Limit State Load / Roofing Span Capacity Chart.

Purlin Type Roofing Rib - Screw Length* (mm) Roofing Rib - Designation Wall Cladding Pan - Screw Length* (mm) Wall Cladding Pan - Designation
Timber with steel based sheet 65 T17 - 14 - 10 x 75
Roofzip M6 x 65 HG-Z4
50 Roofzip M6 x 50 HG-Z4
Timber with aluminium based sheet 73 14g x 73mm Alutite with 8mm dia. clearance hole and an aluminium profiled washer and 36 dia. EPDM seal Non-cavity: 35
Cavity: 55
12g x 35mm or 14g x 55mm Alutite with 8mm dia. clearance hole and an aluminium round washer and seal
Steel 45 Tek - 12 - 14 x 45 20 Tek - 12 - 14 x 20

* If sarking or insulation is used over ht epurlins or for wall cladding fixing onto a cavity batten, into the stud, the screw length will need to be increased.

For screw size range and fastener / washer assembly refer Section 2.2.3.1 of the Dimond Roofing & Cladding Technical Manual.

The Limit State Load / Span Capacity Chart is based on 4 screw fasteners/sheet/purlin without the use of load spreading washers (except for Duraclad material, which must be fitted with either profiled metal washers and 36mm EPDM seals, or 32mm Weatherlok washers).

Profiled metal washers are recommended for use:

  1. On end spans, or large internal spans where the Ultimate Limit State distributed load is limiting. Contact Dimond for specific advice in these design cases.
  2. When required to enable the fixing system to accommodate the thermal movement of long sheets – see Section 2.1.3.4 Thermal Movement.
  3. Wherever the designer wishes to ensure the risk of fastener over-tightening will not cause dishing of the crest of the profile rib.

Use in serviceability categories (1) or (2) can allow the reduction of fasteners to 3 screw fasteners/sheet/purlin. If this is done, the distributed load capacities given in the chart should be reduced using a multiplying factor of 0.5.

Long spans may require the specification and use of side lap stitching screws.

Design Example

Restricted access roof, 0.55mm G550 steel Veedek has a maximum end span of 1500mm and a maximum internal span of 2200mm. The following distributed load capacities apply.

Veedek 4 fasteners/sheet 2 fasteners/sheet
End Span 1500mm 1500mm
Internal Span 2200mm 2200mm
Serviceability 2.0 kPa 1.0 kPa
Ultimate 4.0 kPa 2.0 kPa
