Typical detail showing the side cladding fixed to the purlin with a cleader angle.
Metsec cleader angles are manufactured from pre-hot dipped galvanised steel angle. They are used to provide a sheeting face for cladding along gable rafters or at roof hip intersections.
Two sizes of cleader angle are available:
45 x 45 x 2mm thick = 1.37 kg/m
100 x 100 x 2mm thick = 3.17 kg/m
Maximum length = 7.5m
We suggest that the 45 x 45 x 2mm cleader angle is used on purlin centres up to and including 1.8m. Above this, the 100 x 100 x 2mm cleader angle should be used.
The illustrations below show cleader spanning over two purlin spacings, however multiple spacings can be readily accommodated.
Providing the thickness of the cleader angle does not present any problems, a simple overlap can be used. The overall length would therefore be the purlin centres plus 28mm each end.
The cleader angle can be fitted to either the top or bottom purlin flange to suit the required detail.
