Trimdeck: 5-Rib Roofing

If you’ve ever considered installing a metal roof or building a shed, you’ve probably been directed toward several different websites, pamphlets, and publications about Corrugated roofing and its benefits.  It’s understandable, given the long and successful history Corrugated Roofing iron has had as both a roof and wall cladding material.

But did you know you had another option that provides a little more flexibility when compared to Corrugated roofing?

It’s called Trimdeck or 5-Rib Roofing.

Like Corrugated Roofing iron, Trimdeck roof sheets are roll formed out of .42BMT thickness metal sheeting as standard but are also available in a thicker .48BMT.

The profile of a Trimdeck roof sheet is almost double the height of a Corrugated roof sheet which allows Trimdeck roofing sheets to be installed on lower pitched roof lines.  Trimdeck roof sheets can be installed on roof pitches as low as 2 degrees, ideally suited to Carports or Garage roof spaces.

The Trimdeck profile is a square fluted design, offering a more contemporary appearance than the classic Corrugated “S-Rib” design.  However, the benefits to Trimdeck aren’t just limited to its look.  Beyond just its style, there are a few more reasons why an increasing number of people are now using Trimdeck.

These reasons include:

  • High strength to weight ratio – a Trimdeck sheet profile design allows for a lower minimum pitch than a Corrugated sheet. Trimdeck can handle a roof pitch as low as 2 degrees vs a Corrugated sheet which has a minimum roof pitch of 5 degrees

  • Optimal load span consistency – the coverage of a Trimdeck sheet is the same as that of a Corrugated sheet (.762); however, the design of the Trimdeck profile allows to span a further distance between purlins (up to 20%) more

  • Effective Drainage – Trimdeck roof sheets effectively drain water from your structure, keeping you safe and dry

Like Corrugated sheets, Trimdeck can be cut to length according to your requirements and is available in ZINCALUME® and the entire COLORBOND® colour range.  Selling at the same retail price as Corrugatedroof sheets, Trimdeck is suitable for walls, sheds, garages, carports, awnings, verandas, kit homes, and commercial buildings.

Trimdeck is worth considering for your next project, especially if your roofline is almost flat!

Polycarbonate Or Glass?

7 REASONS WHY POLYCARBONATE ROOFING IS BETTER THAN GLASS

There’s no denying the use of Glass as a cladding material in commercial and residential property constructions has many appealing qualities.

The most prominent quality is transparency. Glass allows natural sunlight to light up and brighten interiors creating a warm and inviting space.

But despite this light transmitting quality, Glass has several disadvantages that can potentially pose some significant problems and outweigh its advantages.

Glass is heavy, fragile and expensive.

Handling glass is more difficult and time-consuming. It can crack or break easily and is expensive to replace.

Fortunately, there is an alternative material available that has the same transparent or translucent qualities as Glass and none of the disadvantages.

Polycarbonate No Ordinary Plastic

Developed in the 1950s, polycarbonate is a solid and durable plastic that is easily worked, moulded and thermoformed. The unique features of polycarbonate make it a versatile and affordable construction material for use in commercial and residential buildings.

Let’s take a closer look at the properties of polycarbonate and how they stack up against glass.

Properties of Polycarbonate

1. Polycarbonate is durable has high impact resistance and low scratch resistance, making it a solid, long-lasting material that can withstand forceful contact without cracking or breaking like glass.

2. Stronger than glass but lighter in weight makes polycarbonate so much easier to handle.

3. Polycarbonate possesses good thermal properties, which means it won’t warp, discolour or buckle in extreme weather conditions.

4. Polycarbonate offers crystal clear transparency for ample sunlight and is coated with UV protection to block 99% of harmful UV rays.

5. Polycarbonate is available in various translucent colours to reduce the amount of light in. This lets you customize your outdoor spaces or interior to suit your property’s general climate and comfort.

6. Polycarbonate provides good sound insulation helping to reduce outside noise pollution.

7. Polycarbonate can be used for roofing, fences, privacy screens and partitions, greenhouses, pergolas, carports, covered walkways, swimming pools, patios, commercial glazing, sports and shopping complexes.
With all the above features that polycarbonate offers, it makes for an attractive, affordable and much better alternative to glass.

Whether it’s a commercial or residential property, polycarbonate roofing will provide the durable protective cover you need without sacrificing any of the available natural light or detract from the design of your build.

Why should you consider Twinwall roofing?

Sunlite Twinwall
TOP 5 BENEFITS OF TWINWALL POLYCARBONATE ROOFING

Polycarbonate is a versatile roofing material and is available in several forms – as smooth, solid panel sheets and twinwall or multiwall panel sheets.

The twinwall polycarbonate sheeting is unique for its cellular structure design and fluted appearance.

Twinwall polycarbonate sheet construction comprises of a series of vertical dividing sheets sandwiched between a double or twin layer of polycarbonate sheeting. This twin layer is what gives this particular polycarbonate its strength but also its superior insulation.

Polycarbonate twinwall sheet is the perfect material for both domestic and commercial structures offering many benefits that other materials don’t.

Polycarbonate is also lightweight, which makes it easy to handle and cut if necessary. It’s available in a range of tints and colours that allows you to not only customise and enhance the visual design of your structure but also allows you to control the light and shade levels.

Twinwall polycarbonate roofing is easy to maintain, wash with a little soap and warm water once a year to keep it clean and looking good as new for many years.

Let’s take a closer look at the properties of polycarbonate and how they stack up against glass.

Here are the top 5 main benefits of twinwall polycarbonate roofing:

1. Excellent structural durability – very strong and long lasting.

2. Superior thermal insulation – doesn’t get too hot in warm climates and not too cold in cooler climates.

3. High light transmission – lets lots of natural light in.

4. Double sided UV coating – provides 99.9% protection from harmful UV rays.

5. Weather and Impact resistant – won’t fade, discolour, crack or break in extreme climatic conditions or under forceful contact.

Whether it’s a commercial or residential property, polycarbonate roofing will provide the durable protective cover you need without sacrificing any of the available natural light or detract from the design of your build.
