Compressed is Best for Corrugated Sheet
Fibre cement corrugated sheet is the ideal roofing and cladding material for livestock buildings, says Ged Ferris of Cembrit.
Commonly seen on agricultural buildings across the UK, fibre cement was first manufactured in Europe at the end of the 19th Century. Cembrit stepped into this market in the 1930s.
At Cembrit, we believe that compression is a vital step in the manufacturing process of fibre cement corrugated sheeting. The reason for this is that the fixing is a weak point in the cladding, whatever material is used. Because it is exposed to the elements a roof is under immense stress and fixing tolerances will be tested to their limit. A higher density cement sheet, such as our Cemsix sheet, will mitigate some of this and provide a more durable fixing location.
Cemsix fully compressed corrugated sheet is produced in the traditional 6" UK profile with six corrugations and overlaps/underlaps on both sides of the sheet. Cemsix is available in three colouration types, all with matching accessories; natural grey, “low sheen” Cemscape or with Cembrit’s three stage coloration process in 7 colours. All sheets are guaranteed for 30 years with a 10 year colour stability guarantee on painted product.
Cemsix corrugated sheet can be fixed to steel or timber purlins. Fixing holes should be predrilled, or self drilling self tapping top fix fixings can be used. Fixing should always be undertaken according to BS 8219:2001.
In addition to over 100 years’ experience manufacturing fibre reinforced cement roofing and cladding products, Cemsix comes with all the product quality and environmental management accreditations you would expect. Cembrit corrugated sheets is a high-quality fibre cement product used as roofing and cladding on agricultural and industrial buildings.
