Building Envelope Trisobuild® systems liner profiles

Trisobuild® systems liner profiles

Attractive, clean and highly reflective internal appearance

Trisobuild® systems comprise of a pre-finished steel trapezoidal liner profile, a spacer system, an insulation layer and a Colorcoat® pre-finished steel external weathering profile.

Tata Steel offers a range of liner profiles, which provide an attractive clean and highly reflective internal appearance. Dependent on the specification the liner can offer a working platform during the construction phase and a perforated option to facilitate various acoustic specifications.

Long lengths are available, however for practical site handling purposes when using the 0.40mm gauge options we would suggest these are kept to a maximum of 5m.

  • The Colorcoat® pre-finished steel products that our liner profiles are manufactured from have been tested in accordance with BS EN 14782 to provide the specifier with the peace of mind of specification declarations and that the components meet the legal requirements set out in the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) and are affixed with a CE mark.
  • Easily handled on site without specialist mechanical equipment, due to its lightweight components. This is important on sites with limited access.
  • Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) approval to LPS 1181 part 1 for fire performance, helps to lower insurance premiums.
  • Fire resistance performance of up to 60 minutes insulation and 4 hours integrity are achievable, with standard installation methods.
  • Full traceability of all component materials and certified ‘very good’ to BRE’s responsible sourcing standard BES 6001.
  • Certification to BES 6001 provides independent evidence of our corporate responsibility, and helps increase credits under the Responsible Sourcing of Materials section of BREEAM.
  • The system can boast low levels of air permeability and good thermal performance over the life of the building, which is due to the quality of components used, and proven performance. This reduces energy costs, carbon emission rates and facilitates compliance with Building Regulations.
  • An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is available for all the Trisobuild® system solutions.
  • Manufactured in factory conditions operating to quality management standard BS EN ISO 9001:2008 and environmental management standard BS EN ISO 14001: 2004.

In a roof application, the spanning capabilities of the liner profiles are largely dependent upon their self-weight and the weight of the insulation they are required to support. In normal conditions a 0.4mm steel liner would double span up to 2m. If a working platform is required we recommend the RL32 in a 0.7mm steel thickness. If a non-fragility rating is required a maximum span and fixing arrangement will need to be specified, for further information on non-fragility specifications please contact our Technical Team.

Although the self curve minimum values shown have been chosen with aesthetics in mind some stress marking may be present in the profile trough. The factory curved data relates to a single convex curve. Information regarding double or wave curves please contact our Technical Team.

Platinum® Plus provides a complete building envelope solution guaranteed for up to 30 years. Designed in collaboration with our innovative supply chain of leading component manufacturers, our comprehensive portfolios of high quality products are fully integrated to provide the widest range of roofing and cladding systems.

The Platinum® Plus system guarantee includes, amongst others, the following components:

  • Trimapanel® micro-rib.
  • Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® or Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel.
  • Stainless steel fixings.
  • Roof lights.
  • Sealants.
  • Fillers.
  • Fall arrest Systems.
  • Flashings & Gutters.
  • The guarantee is offered directly to building owners, giving a direct link back to Tata Steel as the one point of contact.

For full details of our approved components please contact our technical team on +44 (0) 1244 892199.

To ensure that the building envelope will perform as required by the client, we work with specifiers to tailor a specification that considers the interactions of the components and how they impact the building design and performance. We will then provide a detailed Platinum® Plus specification for use within the project tender package, together with a list of recommended installation contractors.

To guarantee the quality of components used on your building, our team of technical construction experts will visit the site to check for compliance to specification, reducing the risk of any issues arising in the future. Once the project is completed the installer will be required to apply for the guarantee using the supplied forms included in the specification document. Tata Steel will then issue the Platinum® Plus guarantee directly to the building owner.

How to raise a specification?

The Platinum® Plus system guarantee needs to be registered with the specifier prior to the tender package being distributed. Please contact our technical team so that we can help you to guarantee the longevity of your building on +44 (0) 1244 892199.

Thermal performance
Trisobuild® systems comply with the Building Regulations (Approved Document Part L2 – England Wales & Technical Handbook 6 – Scotland). All quoted system U-values and construction ‘psi’ and f values have been computer modelled in accordance with EN ISO 10211 as stated in MCRMA Technical Note 14 by trained and experienced technical engineers.

Fire performance
All Trisobuild® systems when used as a roof achieve a Grade AA rating in accordance with BS 476-3, which tests for external surface spread of flame and fire penetration (AA is the best result achievable) or are “deemed to satisfy without the need for testing” in accordance with Commission Decision 200/553/EC.

The Colorcoat® pre-finished steel products used within the Trisobuild® system meet the requirements the Building Regulations Approved Document B for internal and external surfaces.

Trisobuild® systems can also offer a Grade EXT-B and EXT-A approval by the LPCB together with fire resistance of up to 60 minutes insulation and 4 hours integrity.

Trisobuild® systems can offer a wide variety of sound reduction and sound absorption solutions, using variations in liner and insulation specification.

Many assemblies have been tested through independent acoustic laboratories. We have further test data and the ability to offer predicted performance ratings using software developed by the Department of Applied Acoustics, University of Salford and the Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA).

Please contact us and provide details of your requirements to the technical department and our engineers will work with you to develop a solution to achieve the performance levels necessary.
