All you need to know about AshJack

The over-roofing system from Ash & Lacy

What is AshJack?

AshJack™ over-roofing systems are constructed using a bespoke lightweight steel framing system which is primarily designed to create a roof pitch. It offers a permanent solution to failed flat roofs, considerably extending the life of a building without disruption to its occupants. By constructing a lightweight steel frame over the existing roof (which is then over-clad), an effective pitch is created to facilitate water runoff.

AshJack™ can be supplied in a range of designs including pitch, mono pitch and curved. The system by virtue of it’s design opportunity, cab be tailored to suit almost any shape required by the specifier. In addition, eaves conditions can dramatically change the appearance of a building, by incorporating overhangs with soffits, bullnoses etc. The potential for incorporating eaves and verge overhangs has considerable benefits in reducing access and vandalism.

How do you use AshJack?

AshJack™ can be supplied as a propped rafter system, where the existing roof can accommodate loads, or as a ‘Spanning Truss’ where support is only possible at the extremities of the building, or at specific points across the span.

The AshJack™ frame can accept a variety of roof finishes, including metal sheets, tiles; both traditional and metal, slate and fully supported systems. The attic space provided can be designed to accommodate items of plant or ductwork, putting it below the roof, and above two ceilings.

By upgrading the insulation within the void formed by the AshJack™ frame, the ongoing running costs of the building are reduced, whilst also cutting CO2 emissions.

Progressive system innovation has ensured that AshJack™ remains the market leader, providing a new and enhanced lease of life for the widest possible range of failed flat roofs, in both public and private sectors.

The Ash & Lacy technical team are available to assist in the choice of system and to carry out preliminary surveys so please contact your local AJW depot to arrange a survey.
