Installing Plastic roof sheets

How do you install thoses rippled sheets that you would find on a greenhouse or barn. You can't step on them for fear of breaking them right? They come in 26"x12' lengths with supports you buy extra to strenghten in between rafters. Is there an easy way?

Corragated panels install very easily. Put mid-span blocks beteen your joists, install you closures over the blocks and lay the panels on the closures. You are working from one side to the other, from a ladder. You install one 12' panel, completing it from top to bottom, then move on to the next.

Use 2 ladders and scaffold between them. That will save you about a million trips up and down a single ladder!!
