Kathleen Kilgour Centre

Project Overview

Early in this project, Monkey Toe was selected to design a unique roof mounting system to suit the uncommon roof profile used in the building.

A custom roofing clip had to be engineered to fit the Euro tray-type roof. To satisfy the engineers, architects, and the Monkey Toe quality standards, the custom roofing clips had to undergo rigorous testing to ensure the pull off resistance exceeded the earthquake and wind loading requirements - which they did.

The Skywalk walkway system was selected as the best option as it is raised 200mm off the roof, fixed to the roofing using the unique Monkey Toe fixings, and uses the open fibre reinforced plastic decking. The decking is strengthened with fibre and doesn’t warp or lose its strength over time, unlike regular plastic.

Monkey Toe supplied the walkway system to site to be installed by the roofers on site, helping the client secure a total roofing warranty.

The final project result as a very tidy walkway and solar support install with the roofing warranty still intact … something every project wants to achieve.
