For Buildings with 2 Bays or More.
The sleeved side rail system optimises the use of steel by incorporating sleeves at the penultimate rafter with a staggered sleeving arrangement on internal bays.
The sleeved system caters for spans up to 15m depending on the load to be applied and where the cladding or liner tray offers adequate support by virtue of its fixing: i.e. fixed according to the cladding manufacturer’s instructions.
Computer controlled production techniques apply the client’s individual mark numbers to all rails automatically during the manufacturing process.
Single span lengths can be supplied to suit individual requirements. Penultimate rafter connections are sleeved with a staggered sleeving arrangement on internal bays.

End bay rails are single span, with double span rails on internal bays. The maximum double span rail is 15m, therefore the maximum span between columns is 7.5m. A sleeve must occur at every joint position.

Note: consideration must be given to the handling of longer lengths.
C-section sleeved system (mm)
The C-section sleeve range includes one thickness per height of profile as shown on the table below.
Unless otherwise stated, all required holes are 18mm diameter for M16 bolts and are normally pierced in pairs on standard gauge lines.
