Gable to Gable System

Where there is a relatively short span, our roof panels are installed ‘Gable to Gable’. The roof panels are landed horizontally, and are supported by the two gable spandrel panels.

Smartroof’s insulated roofing system utilises a unique patented design and engineering system that facilitates this installation process which has the following benefits.


Vaulted Ceilings

Spanning gable to gable provides flexibility in design and the option to utilise more roof space by incorporating vaulted ceilings. Due to the panels being supported by the two gable ends, there is no requirement for internal support such as glulams / steels / box girders.

Safe Installation

The first roof panels are installed at the eaves which adds extra bracing to the overall structure between spandrels as soon as they are landed.

Speed of Installation

Typically there would only be 3 panels on each side of the roof (eaves panel, dormer or roof window panel and ridge panel), this enables a fast installation with reduced lifts required onsite.
