OIL CANNING: Oil Canning is the visible waviness in the flat areas of metal roofing and walling. Oil canning produces an aesthetic effect inherent in standing seam tray profiles and profiles/flashings with wide flat elements. It does not cause detriment to product performance.
Oil canning can occur during the forming and installation processes and during thermal expansion of the roof sheeting during its life cycle. The effect can be more or less pronounced depending on differing light and sun angle conditions and the coating gloss levels.
For EuroPanel, oil canning can be reduced by the vented underlay (e.g. Tyvek Metal), in addition, backer rods under the panel can also be used.
There are several options to reduce the oil canning effect in panel type profiles and flashings, for example,
a) increasing the thickness of the material,
b) using stiffening swages in wide flat elements and
c) limiting flat elements to less than 150mm width.

EuroPanel® Limited State Load / Span Capacity
(span in mm, distributed ultimate load in kPa)
- Loads given are limited to a maximum of 4.15kPa. If design requirements exceed this limit, Contact Dimond Roofing for specific advice.
- Design Criteria for Limit State Capacities
- Ultimate Limited State
No pull through of fixings or fasteners withdrawal resulting in sheet detachment due to wind up-lift (outward) loads
- Ultimate Limited State
- Wind Pressure Guide
As a guide for non-specific design the following S.L.S. design loads in accordance with the MRM Roofing Code of Practice can be used for buildings less than 10m high, otherwise AS/NZS 1170.2 should be used
Low wind zone = 0.68kPa, Medium wind zone = 0.93kPa, High wind zone = 1.32kPa, Very high wind zone = 1.72kPa and Extra high wind zone = 2.09kPa.
EuroPanel® wall cladding must always be installed over a plywood (12mm minimum) substrate with a moisture content of less than 18% and made wind tight, with purlin supports underneath at 600mm centres in low to high wind zones and 400mm centres for very high and extra high wind zones. Avoid contact between Zinc and Bitumous papers. Use covertek 403.
8g x 40mm countersunk stainless steel screws at 150mm centres around the panel edged and 200mm centres on the intermediate supports. The fasteners should be no closer than 10mm to the edge.
A 3mm expansion gap should be provided between the sheets. All joints should be staggered and taped over before placing
EuroPanel® can have varying length panels up to 1125mm for Lock seam but can be longer for Hook Seam panels please
contact the local Dimond Roofing branch for further information.
EuroPanel® can be laid in pattern or randomly depending on the required finish. Most often the panel will be installed in a
The height of the panel must remain the same for each row or course. Concealed ‘stainless steel’ or copper clips connect the
EuroPanel® to the substrate, and the seam width of the Lock Seam panel can be adjusted if required.

Coated steel based materials are not recommended for these profiles, due to the high likelihood of scratching, which could lead to corrosive issues at a later date.
Flashing and jointing details when using Copper or Zinc materials are required to be solder, silicone sealants are not to be used on these materials.
