SOTTOCOPPO
UNDER TILE METAL SYSTEM

System for Tiles

Thanks to metal know-how, Fibrotubi has revolutionised the market with a solution for the understructure that allows to overcome limits of existing materials on the market.
Sottocoppo Metal System drastically reduces the problems related to weight, tiles fragility, incorrect laying of the tiles; moreover it can be installed at lower slopes than traditional standards while maintaining water tightness guarantees.
Sottocoppo metal system
 has been designed to be waterproof, walkable, resistant (it supports high loads in spite of its lightness) and to anchor the tile effectively over time.
Each Sottocoppo sheet is supplied with four pre-drilled stringers for the installation of tiles and their fixing. The stringer is sized to be shorter than the sheet and must be installed on the high corrugation in order to allow the overlapping of several sheets in case of long pitches.

Profile height 32 mm
Total width 859 mm
Useful width 777 mm
Sheet standard length 1520 / 2130 / 2440 / 2750 / 3060 / 3990 mm
Stringer profile standard lengths 1344 / 1932 / 2268 / 2520 / 2856 / 3780 mm
Minimum slope 15 %
0.6 mm prepainted steel sheet weight approx. 6.2 kg/m2
Steel profile weight approx. 0.31 kg/lm
Material prepainted steel
Available finishes red tile
Recommended use roofing

Fixing on wood

Fixing on iron

Lateral overlapping

Installation with mortars or polyurethane adhesives

Installation with hooks

ADVANTAGES
  • Waterproof even at low slope (minimum 15%);
  • Walkable and resistant without risk of breakage;
  • Ventilated with safe anchorage of the tiles thanks to the stringers;
  • Lightweight solution compared to the classic brick under tile, in fact it weights only around 6,2 kg/m2;
  • The system is ready to receive photovoltaic systems;
  • High resistance finishing available on demand
Static scheme Prepainted steel thickness [mm] Span [m]
0,5 1 1,5
3 supports 0,6 821 291 153
4 supports 0,6 968 352 183

Deformation limit equal to L/200

Load including a layer of tiles (about 30 kg/m2)

Reference standard EN 1993-1-3; 1-2; 1-4

The content of this calculation table is to be considered as a rough guide and with a simple indicative value.
It is the responsibility of the technical engineer and/or user to carry out the relevant structural calculation for the individual cases of use and to determine the design specifications of the roof solution.

Thanks to the possibility of installing full-length sheets, laying times are drastically reduced and absolute waterproofing of the roof covering is guaranteed.

Front overlapping

Initial hook

Available for tiles with an approximate thickness of 15 or 20 mm

Intermediate hook
