Roofing of resin bonded tiles is similar to that of cement- sand "roman" tiles. The base for roof is a roof batten (sub-purlin).
Calculation of roof batten spacing (S) depends on the size of tiles, roof pitch, and pitch length to put a whole number of rows.
Maximum spacing is 345 mm.
In order to make a roof batten easier roofers recommend to produce a special model, pattern (T)
Recommended beam section is 50*50 mm or 60* 60 mm. The size of section depends on the distance between rafters. The larger the distance the larger is the section size. Beams are fixed to rafters in the direction from roof ridge to the cornice.
Along the cornice wooden boards are fixed (width to be 140- 150 mm).That is why S1 reduces at least in the size of board thickness.
Recommended spacing S1 is 320 mm (constant).
Approximate number of rows and respectively the spacing can be calculated using the table.
In the first instance the bottom row of tiles are fixed.
They are put on 2 battens, fixing tiles using pins to the top batten.
Mounting of the rest tiles can be done at the same time in 3-4 rows.
The attention should be paid to the fact that fixing a tile to a batten is not tight, because there should be a slight gap between the nail head, screw or any other fixing element and the tile surface. At the expense of this gap tile must have a certain gap which will allow it to compensate natural expansion of tile resulting from temperature effect and it will also let a roof resist loads, caused by wind pressure, building set etc without causing any roof deformations and destruction.
Tile mounting is to be done in the direction from the cornice to the ridge, from the right to the left.
This rule has to be observed in order to reach full coupling of tiles between each other and in rows at the expense of the pins and longitudinal cuts. Closed grooved joints which are formed as a result of the overlaps prevent atmospheric precipitation (rain, snow) from penetrating the inside of a roof.
