Corrugated Scaffold and Temporary Roofing sheets are widely utilized in the construction industry as a versatile and durable building material. Made of galvanised steel, these sheets are commonly employed for roofing purposes due to their strength, cost-effectiveness, versatility, and eco-friendly nature. Over the years, their design has remained largely unchanged, attesting to their exceptional quality.
The corrugated metal sheet is constructed from galvanised steel and has a cover width of 762mm [2'6"]. It features a 10/3 profile, with 10 rolls measuring 3" each (measured from the top of one roll to the next), and each sheet is 2.4m long. With a thickness of 24 gauge or 0.6mm (0.55-0.65mm), it is recommended to overlap two panels by one corrugation.
The repetitive grooved surface of each corrugated sheet provides substantial structural strength and stability. Being composed of steel, these sheets are resistant to rot, decay, and insect infestation, unlike certain other materials. They can endure harsh weather conditions, fire, and extreme heat more effectively than timber or asphalt products. Additionally, these roofing sheets are lightweight, easy to handle and install, and do not impose excessive strain on the building structure.
This CI (corrugated iron) sheet can be quickly installed, making it ideal for swiftly covering large areas, especially when temporary protection is required due to roof damage caused by strong winds or storms. Moreover, the wavy design facilitates efficient water run-off, preventing water accumulation.
Galvanised roofing sheets are highly favoured by scaffolding companies when erecting a temporary roof. Steel scaffold poles are used to form the framework, with the metal sheets placed on top at a slight incline and secured using roofing/corrugated sheeting couplers.
These types of metal roofing sheets are commonly employed in the construction of agricultural buildings such as poultry houses, sheds, barns, and other animal enclosures. They offer quick installation and provide protection against severe weather, sunlight, and predators. Galvanised steel, when properly installed and maintained, has exceptional durability and a long lifespan, minimizing the risk of rust formation. For farmers, these sheets are a cost-effective solution.
Corrugated steel sheets exhibit a traditional appearance and go by various names such as CI Sheets (corrugated iron), wriggly tin, wrinkly tin, corry tin, sinusoidal profile, tin hat roofing, or roof cladding. Despite the term "corrugated iron," they are no longer made of iron. Due to their rugged industrial look, grooved steel sheets are also utilized as interior design materials, serving as a unique design element.
It is important to store these sheets away from the elements and keep them dry to prevent the formation of "white rust" before use. Handling the panels should be done with gloves due to their sharp edges.
These useful metal sheets are available in a cost-effective pack of 100 panels.
