Product Description and Features
PANELRIB® has a fluted profile making it suitable for many applications where flat sheet would not normally be considered. The longitudinal flutes provide rigidity along the length of the sheet while retaining full flexibility across the width.
- Can be used on exterior and interior walls and on straight or curved surfaces with flutes horizontal or vertical
- Long, straight lengths minimise fixing costs
- Available in a wide variety of COLORBOND® steel colours and ZINCALUME® steel
- PANELRIB® is only suitable in for use for walling in non-cyclonic areas
- Only suitable in non-cyclonic areas
- If end laps are necessary because of very long runs, allow at least 75mm lap – a suitable seal is required for external conditions
PANELRIB® is available in custom cut lengths to suit the application requirements.

What is cladding and how does it relate to roofing and walling?
Cladding is a collective term for any sheeting that covers a building, whether it be on the roof of the building, or on the walls. Roof cladding is made from thicker steel and is rolled to a profile capable of supporting roof traffic*. In most cases, these roof claddings can also be used for walling as well. Wall cladding is made from thinner steel, rolled to a less rigid profile. They are generally not capable of supporting roof traffic, prohibiting their use as roofing.
*Some roofing is designed to be non-trafficable. Please consult the span and capacity tables of the cladding for further details.
