THE COLORSTEEL® RANGE

HANDLING & STORAGE

If Colorsteel® prepainted steel products are to be stored for any time prior to forming or installation, they must be stored in dry, ventilated conditions. Storage which allows water (including condensation) to be trapped between the sheets may damage the coating beyond repair. Colorsteel® Maxx® products must be handled carefully during transport, fabrication and fixing to avoid damaging the surface.

INSTALLATION

Full installation details for Colorsteel® Maxx® is contained in the New Zealand Steel Installers' Guide and NZ MRM Code of Practice.

FIXINGS

Aluminium and factory painted fixings are acceptable. The fasteners durability should equal (or exceed) that of the roofing or cladding product and should be suitable for the environment. Stainless steel screws and lead-head nails must not be used.

WARRANTY & MAINTENANCE

Your warranty is dependant on two things, having the right product for the right environment and ensuring you maintain it in line with the maintenance recommendations.

Colorsteel® Maxx® products are recommended for use in moderate environments to severe environments. Maintenance recommendations for residential warranties as follows. For commercial buildings such as schools and warehouses, refer to New Zealand Steel for details of commercial warranties.

A moderate environment is characterised by:

  • Little or no salt deposits

  • The occassional smell of salt in the air

  • Typically starts 500-1000m from breaking surf such as is found on exposed coasts, or in the immediate vicinity of calm salt water such as estuaries

A severe environment is characterised by:

  • Little salt deposits

  • A frequent smell of salt in the air

  • Typically starts 100-500 metres from breaking surf such as found on exposed coasts

  • In the immediate vicinity of large expanses of calm salt water such as harbour foreshores

A very severe environment (which starts 25m from the high water mark on the East Coast and 50m on the West Coast) is characterised by:

  • Heavy salt deposits

  • The almost constant smell of salt in the air

  • Close to breaking surf such as is found on exposed coasts

These environments may be extended inland by prevailing winds and local conditions.

Ensure you contact a Steelformers representative to ensure you have chosen the right solution for your environment.

LIMITATIONS OF USE

Colorsteel® Maxx®  products are designed for use in very severe environments, greater than 100m from the West Coast. Before using Colorsteel® Maxx® products near sources of industrial pollution or in geothermal areas, consult a Steelformers representative.

  • Embedded in concrete

  • In contact with permanently wet materials
