SpacerX Roof Spacer System

Bradford SpacerX is a patented roof spacer system for concealed fixed roofs. SpacerX improves speed of construction by allowing the spacer and the concealed roof clip to be assembled with only 3 screws per 700mm bar (screws not included).

Suitable for non-cyclonic commercial roofing applications, SpacerX is available in 4 sizes; 40mm, 60mm, 80mm and 120mm to suit the full range of Anticon roofing blankets to help achieve the required BCA total roof system R-Value. SpacerX is sold as an easy-to-carry pack of 10 with no cardboard packaging waste.

Installation time comparison

A comparative study was conducted by CSR Bradford to compare the installation time required to install the SpacerX system against four other roof spacer systems in the commercial roofing market;

  • Ashgrid
  • Roof Razor™
  • Roof Rack®
  • Aldeck

All systems were installed as per the manufacturer’s recommendations for a metal roof with concealed fixed roof cladding in a controlled environment by two experienced roofers. The comparison study conditions are:

  • Roof area: 96m2
  • Number of workers: 2
  • Number of purlins: 9
  • Purlin lengths: 10m
  • Purlin spacing: 1.2m
  • Safety Mesh: pre-installed
  • Insulation: pre-installed

Installation Time Comparison Results

Materials and time recorded to install each roof spacer system over a roof area of 96m2.

1. Roof Rack system was pre-assembled with concealed fixed clips on-site prior to installation onto the roof area. Total install time includes time required to pre-assemble the clips.
2. Aldeck system was pre-assembled with concealed fixed clips off-site prior to day of installation. For this installation time comparison, an assumed time period of 31:18 mins (based on pre-assemble time for Roof Rack) was added to the total install time.
