TRAD Hire & Sales Release New ALTRIX Temporary Roof System User Guide


Following on from the introduction of the new User Guide and Component Capacity Manual for their revolutionary PLETTAC METRIX® System Scaffold, TRAD Hire & Sales are proud to announce the launch of the new User Guide for their ALTRIX® Temporary Roof System.

ALTRIX® is an all-aluminium modular temporary roofing and weather protection system, which utilises the slide sheet keder model. Using the proven sliding button system to retain the sheet tracking, this allows the roof sheets to be installed in complete safety from the supporting structure below.

Although ALTRIX® is designed to work particularly efficiently with PLETTAC METRIX® System Scaffold, it is not limited to this application. ALTRIX® can be used in conjunction with almost any scaffold type – systems or traditional tube & fittings.

ALTRIX® uses a heavy-duty 790mm deep structural beam ideal for demanding applications. The chords and vertical posts of the beams are manufactured from 48.3mm diameter alloy tube and, as they do not require special fittings, the beams are suitable for use in many normal scaffold applications, such as bridge sections.
ALTRIX® is more than just a roof, the 3.0m, 2.5m, 2.0m and 1.5m bay sizes, along with 2.0m brace frame centres, means that PLETTAC METRIX® steel decking can integrate seamlessly within an ALTRIX® structure.

This setup is ideal for creating large flushed deck birdcages and gantries while also allowing for temporary walkways to be created from eaves to ridge, aiding the safe erection and dismantling processes of a roof structure.

ALTRIX® is a complete solution, designed for practical application. Not only is ALTRIX® a temporary roof used by scaffolders, it is a scaffolders’ temporary roof.

ALTRIX® Temporary Roof System is exclusive to TRAD Hire & Sales, and is offered on both a Hire and Sale basis. They offer an unrivalled commitment to service, including extensive User Guides, Nationwide Training, Engineering and Design Support, Estimating Software, and a full on-site support service – their UK-wide network of depots have the resources and capabilities to meet every demand.
