The angle-type steel roof and the vertical lock-type steel roof mainly use fixtures to connect the rails with the roof, and ladder-type steel roof need to use self-drilling bolts to fix the rail on the roof.


Not matter which type of roof, it is necessary to exactly measure the dimension of "angle", "upright", "trapezoidal" of the roof corrugated, to select the right connectors. So that it can ensure connectors can match with the roofs and it can be installed exactly. To avoid water leakage at the bolt hole, usually use EPDM PAD under the fixture.
