The general idea is to measure how many square metres your roof covers and what pitch (and therefore which gauge) your roof is. The following table explains how this is calculated:

14 to 25 degrees (fully boarded or felt & battens) 6″ (152mm) 22
25 to 27.5 degrees (fully boarded or felt & battens) 6.5″ (165mm) 20
27.5 to 30 degrees (fully boarded or felt & battens) 7″ (178mm) 19
above 30 degrees (fully boarded or felt & battens) 7.5″ (191mm) 18

* The minimum recommended pitch and lap may be influenced by special circumstances, please contact our technical department for advice.
Note: Advice from Tapco technical department should also be sought when installing on high buildings and/or in exceptionally windy areas.
