Support Methods

Careful consideration should be given to the method of support. Options range from simple timber sub-structure, supplied by others, to Dales Plexus Carcassing System. The selection of the support method will depend upon many factors. Dales Technical department offer advice on the selection of the support system and can be contacted on 0115 930 1521, alternatively you may wish to meet with a technical advisor to discuss your specific requirements in detail. As part of the design service Dales will prepare details and calculations to ensure that the method of support is optimised for the application in question.
Timber or steel supports

Fascia soffit systems can be fixed directly to timber or steel primary structure, however great care is required to ensure that the line of the structure is to an acceptable level as the fascia and soffit will follow this line.

Even with the greatest of care given during the installation of the primary structure there are difficulties in ensuring a lined and levelled finish as bowing and twisting can occur as the roof is loaded out, ultimately providing an uneven surface onto which the fascia and soffit will be installed. The introduction of a secondary support system can eliminate this ensuring a precise line to the eaves regardless of the accuracy of the primary structure.
Plexus Carcassing System

In its simplest form a secondary support system may consist of only one or two pieces of galvanised steel angle, designed to incorporate appropriate tolerances and positioned to provide a straight and level substructure onto which the eaves system can be installed.

Plexus Carcassing - Monocoque Bracket

The Monocoque system reduces the number of individual components making up the support structure, reducing fixing time whilst ensuring an accurately lined and level fascia and soffit installation. Designed specifically for each application the Monocoque system can be used in conjunction with timber, steel or concrete primary structure.

Dales Plexus carcassing system can be as simple as a single bracket, designed to support the gutter system and provide fixing locations for fascia and soffit elements whilst accommodating normal building tolerances.

Alternatively the Plexus carcassing system can consist of several brackets and angles carefully designed to fix together to allow speed of installation whilst ensuring that the eaves system will be straight and level regardless of the line of the primary structure.
