Fasteners and Accessories

Do not use galvanized steel ridge cap flashings or gutters
with a ZINCALUME® steel or COLORBOND® steel roof.
The galvanized steel will need to be replaced at an earlier interval (use ZINCALUME® or COLORBOND® steel).

Do not use stainless steel screws, galvanized washers, cadmium plated screws or other type of screw that doesn’t comply with AS 3356 Class three, with ZINCALUME® steel
or COLORBOND® steel, as this will lead to premature failure of the roof sheet.

All screws should have rubber sealing washers.  
Rubber washers should be EPDM quality or the equivalent and be free of carbon fillers.

Buy fasteners that are as durable as the roof sheeting you have purchased and that comply with class AS 3566 Class 3. AS3566 is a performance based standard that specifies
a minimum coating thickness for fasteners to be used in benign (Class 1) to severe marine (Class 4) environments.
