Installation key requirements

Refer to ARKzip installation guidelines
Halter brackets have 2No 304 grade stainless steel fasteners plus an isolating EPDM seal.
Isolate aluminium from galvanised steel. ARKzip requires a single fixed point per sheet, normally at the ridge or crown of a curved roof. Zip sheets as laid. Increase halter gauge by 5mm for natural curve sheets. Note impact of AZ65/400 module Vs liner if rooflights to be installed. Set zipping tool to 20mm rib top diameter. Use stainless steel tooling for stucco, nylon for painted finishes. Close ribs by hand pliers at each sheet end before zipping. Protect pre-painted sheet finishes with a rib cloth, walk on ARKzip ribs, use ARKzip ridge/ eaves and verge detailing and components. Allow 1.2xLmm, min 20mm gap at eaves stiffener angle. Turn sheets down at eaves at pitches < 10°
