Can WALLCLAD® be used for roofing?
No, we recommend CUSTOM ORB®, in 0.42mm or 0.48mm base metal thickness (BMT) for roofing purposes. CUSTOM BLUE ORB®, 0.6mm BMT can also be used for curved roofing. WALLCLAD® is available in a 0.55mm base metal thickness (BMT). Bluescope Lysaght recommends 0.42mm BMT as a minimum for roofing purposes. CUSTOM ORB® is our equivalent corrogated profile for roofing, which is available as 0.42mm and 0.48mm BMT. CUSTOM BLUE ORB® in 0.6mm BMT can also be used for curved roofing.
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.
