Trapezoidal, or rib profiles, have sloping sided ribs and are fastened through the profile. They are available in a number of configurations to suit a wide range of performance and aesthetic criteria.
They can be categorised by common application into residential, commercial and industrial groups.
Steel & Tube roofing products offer four trapezoidal rib products with rib heights varying between 20mm and 30mm. These are typically utilised in domestic roofing, or commercial roofing and cladding applications where spanning ability is not a prime requirement. The five-ribbed product gives exceptional performance.
Plumdek and Triform profiles feature a strong rib design coupled with wide economical cover, meaning they are equally at home in residential and commercial applications.
Appropriate for use as residential roofing and cladding, industrial/commercial roofing and cladding, and canopies.
