Only for dreamers
The self supporting roofing is a building system based on a support structure, topped by two beams where the roofing sheets stand.
It can reach a span of 30 m although the optimal span is 22 m depending on the location.
The connection of the roofing sheets to the beams is made using a metal ridge, working as a joint.
The system is completed by assembling 2 different types of tension cables:
- Tension cables to absorb horizontal loads.
- Tension cables to avoid sail effect.
From a technical point of view, the ridges, working as joints, prevent tension to be transmitted to the support structure. This will make pillars perform like brackets secured to the foundation.
