  • Description
  • Advantages & Attributes
  • BattenLok HS – Properties
  • Allowable Uniform Loads

An attractive feature of the BattenLok® HS panel is the vertical leg sidelap seam that is mechanically seamed with an electric seamer for a weathertight finish. This panel features concealed clips and easy to handle 16″ or 12″ wide panels custom cut to the desired length. BattenLok® HS can be installed directly over purlins or bar joists. It does not require a solid substructure for support. This roof system has several different UL® 90 construction numbers.

Gauge
  • 24 gauge (standard)
  • 22 gauge

 

Length
  • Maximum 40′ (standard), other lengths are available
    as special requests

 

Dimensions
  • 16″ wide and 2″ high (standard)
  • 12″ also available

 

Finish
  • Galvalume Plus®
  • Signature® 200
  • Signature® 300

 

Limitations
  • Recommended for roof slopes of ½:12 or greater. Oil canning
    is not a reason for rejection.

 

Fasteners
  • A choice of concealed panel clips is available for this panel system including UL® rated clips. These clips hold the panel firmly in place without unsightly exposed fasteners. Each floating clip system offers the ability to accommodate thermal movement.

 

Usage
  • This panel is a structural panel that spans up to five feet on purlins, or can be used as an architectural panel over solid deck. This flat panel is designed with striations as an option to minimize oil-canning. It is designed to meet the ever-changing specifications and other industry codes.

Note:

For 12″ panel information please contact Robertson.

Allowable Uniform Loads Notes:
  1. Allowable loads are based on uniform span lengths and Fy = 50 ksi.
  2. LIVE LOAD is limited by bending, shear, combined shear and bending and web crippling.
  3. Allowable loads consider a maximum deflection ratio of L/180.
  4. The weight of the panel has not been deducted from the allowable loads.
  5. THE ALLOWABLE UNIFORM LOADS ARE NOT FOR USE WHEN DESIGNING PANELS TO RESIST WIND UPLIFT.
  6. Please contact manufacturer or manufacturer’s website for most current allowable wind uplift loads.
  7. The use of any field seaming machine other than that provided by the manufacturer may damage the panels, void all warranties and will void all engineering data.

The engineering data contained herein is for the expressed use of customers and design professionals. Along with this data, it is recommended that the design professional have a copy of the most current version of the North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members published by the American Iron and Steel Institute to facilitate design. This Specification contains the design criteria for cold-formed steel components. Along with the Specification, the designer should reference the most current building code applicable to the project jobsite in order to determine environmental loads. If further information or guidance regarding cold-formed design practices is desired, please contact the manufacturer.
