K-Span Roofing System

November 11, 2023by shajib0

A roof acts as a protective shield for a building, shielding it from rain, snow, and intense sunlight. It consists of various components, including the outer layer (roof covering) and the supporting structure. Elements like underlayment keep water out, while insulation regulates internal temperatures for comfort and energy efficiency. Adequate ventilation prevents issues like mold, and specialized features like flashing and gutters ensure water stays in its designated areas. Designing a roof is like solving a puzzle, considering factors like weather and local regulations for optimal functionality. Like any crucial element, roofs require regular maintenance to remain robust and fulfill their purpose. The K-Span roofing system, entirely reliant on steel, proves especially beneficial in arid regions. Given the high temperatures in Kuwait, the K-Span roofing system becomes essential for nearly everyone. Let’s explore the specifics of this steel-based roofing system below.

What is K-Span Roofing System?

The K-Span Roofing System is a versatile solution for new projects, like warehouses and parking shades. It’s easy to install on different structures like brick, concrete, or steel, without needing traditional roof support. K-Span arch buildings seamlessly fit into various projects, making them adaptable and efficient.

We specialize in the latest K-Span Building System, utilizing advanced methods for the erection of properties with a galvanized roofing system. Our services include the construction of warehouses, K-Span depots, aircraft hangars, and individual properties with clear spans.

Self-supported (K-Span) Roofing System

Instead, the roofing sheets are seamlessly installed using state-of-the-art SDST Screws. Trust IIPG to provide you with a reliable and aesthetically pleasing roofing solution for your diverse needs.

Design & Installation Process

In the initial stages, IIPG (Innovative Infrastructure and Products Group) conducts a comprehensive design analysis to provide clients with an estimated cost. This analysis considers factors such as building span, center-arch height, live load, wind load, dead loads, and the corrosive characteristics of the intended site. The data derived from this analysis is instrumental in determining the thickness of the steel roofing sheet and arch-reactions at beam levels.

Following the design analysis, IIPG furnishes the customer with conceptual design drawings of gutter beams, which may be constructed from concrete or steel. The arch-reaction data is then integrated into the structural consultant’s work, guiding the design of foundations, footings, columns, and beams. Subsequently, the customer proceeds with the construction phase, opting for either reinforced concrete (R.C.C) or steel structures.

Once the site is prepared with the supporting structure, IIPG conducts a thorough inspection and coordinates the transportation of necessary materials, including coils and mobile panel forming machinery, cranes, and seaming equipment tools and tackles. High-grade structural coils (Galvalume Coils) are fed into the mobile coil forming machine, producing the required length and curve deflections in interlocking profiles.

The profiled curves are then lifted and installed by cranes, fastened with Galvanized or Stainless Steel (SS) Anchor bolts onto the supportive concrete or fabricated steel beams along the eaves. The self-supportive, truss-less roofing system can be customized during the profile forming process to incorporate hangers, providing additional support for cable tray ducts, false ceilings, and light fixtures.
