This system uses a crane lift-able metal turning unit (used in the production of roofing sheets and cladding). The advantages of using this system are that it reduces manual handling by placing the roof sheets in situ; it rolls out sheets which are the whole width of the roof, so fixings and cutting are reduced, thus minimising HAVs; it’s safer because the sheets are laid out straight onto the roof, reducing the risk of them blowing away, and it’s also much quicker as far fewer lifts are required.
The photos show a coil of metal ready to be lifted into the roller with a telehandler and the metal roll in place on the roller almost ready to be lifted to the roof.
The whole of the roof top sheets were produced in 1.5 days, which is must faster than the conventional method of forming the sheets on the ground and lifting them up one pack at a time.
