BlueScope Distribution supplies a range of the best BlueScope LYSAGHT steel roofing products that are manufactured from top quality pre-painted COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® magnesium, aluminium, or zinc alloy-coated steel. Available in various profiles, there’s a style that will suit every possible building application whether residential or commercial, contemporary or federation-style.
The design of your roof and the type and style of roofing you choose for it will depend on a number of factors including:
Most profiles are available in custom-cut lengths.
There are currently 14 different BlueScope LYSAGHT steel roofing profiles:
Most, but not all, can also be used for steel walling.
Specifications for roofing include the mass measured in kilograms per square metre, the cover width and rib depth, the minimum roof pitch for each profile, and the base metal thickness (BMT), which is the thickness of the steel substrate before any sort of coating or paint is applied.
Most steel roofing is available with a BMT of 0.42 mm for domestic purposes or 0.48 mm for commercial applications. A BMT of 60, 70, or 80 will result in a stronger, heavier profile.
CUSTOM ORB® is the hugely popular BlueScope Lysaght corrugated steel roofing profile that can be laid flat or sprung curved. Long, wide, strong, and lightweight, it is an economic profile that works equally well for traditional and contemporary designs. Straightforward to work with, this steel roofing profile is quick and easy to align. CUSTOM ORB® has a BMT of 0.42 and 0.48 and both gauges requires a minimum pitch of 5° (1 in 12).
CUSTOM BLUE ORB® is similar to CUSTOM ORB® but with a BMT of 0.60 and 0.80, it is intended for commercial or industrial use. While the cover width of 762 mm and minimum roof pitch requirements are the same, it has a slightly deeper rib depth of 17 mm versus 16 mm for CUSTOM ORB®. Ductile, it is ideal for curved convex or concave steel roofing or for traditional bull-nosed verandas.
CUSTOM ORB ACCENT® 21has an even greater rib depth of 21 mm and the minimum roof pitch it can be used for is 3° (1 in 20). It has a BMT of 0.42 and 0.48 and the same cover width as the previous two profiles. Ideal for low pitched roofs, it creates a bold roofline and is ideal for areas that experience high rainfall.
CUSTOM ORB ACCENT® 35has a rib depth of 35 mm as its name suggests. Its BMT is 0.48 and the minimum roof pitch it can be applied to is 2° (1 in 30). At 724 mm, its cover width is slightly less than the previous three profiles. It is well suited to use in contemporary residential, commercial, and even modern industrial and recreational buildings.
FLATDEK®has a rib depth of 45 mm and is ideal for carport and patio roofs as well as steel roofing for any other open-sided structures. It has a BMT of 0.42 and a narrow cover width of 250 mm. The minimum roof pitch allowed is 2° (1 in 30).
FLATDEK® II has almost identical specs as FLATDEK® (above) except that it has a much wider cover width of 820 mm and a slightly lighter mass. It is also intended for use over open-sided structures.
FLATDEK® 310has virtually the same specs as the other two but a nominal cover width of 310 mm, which is in between.
INTEGRITY® 820 is a versatile solution for flat and almost-flat roofs. It has a BMT of 0.42 and 0.48 but the thinner sheeting has a minimum roof pitch spec of 2° (1 in 30) while the thicker sheeting can be laid flatter from 1° (1 in 50). The cover width is 820 mm as the name suggests, and it has a particularly deep rib of 48 mm.
KLIP-LOK® 406features a concealed fastening method that negates the need for exposed fasteners and provides a watertight guarantee. It has a cover width of 406 mm and a BMT of 0.48. Its rib depth is 41 mm and it can be laid to a minimum 1° (1 in 50).
KLIP-LOK 700 HI-STRENGTH® has a cover width of 700 mm and it offers three BMT options: 0.42, 0.48, and 0.60. The 0.42 gauge has a minimum pitch spec of 2° (1 in 30) while the other two options can be laid flatter at 1° (1 in 50). The depth of the rib is 43 mm. Like KLIP-LOK® 406, it utilises concealed fasteners so the long, clean lines of the steel roofing remain smooth and good looking. These features make it incredibly versatile.
KLIP-LOK CLASSIC®700 offers a 0.42 and 0.48 BMT. Its specs for cover width and pitch are the same as those for the Hi-Strength variation but the rib depth is slightly less at 41 mm.
LONGLINE 305®has a BMT of 70, cover width of 700 mm, and its rib depth is 48 mm. The minimum roof pitch is 1° (1 in 50) making it suitable for “flat” roofed industrial buildings.
SPANDEK® is an attractive trapezoidal profile with a contemporary appeal. Strong, rigid, and light, it is an economical option. Available with a BMT of 0.42 or 0.48, it boasts a cover width of 700 mm. The minimum pitch is 3° (1 in 20) and a shallow rib depth of 24 mm.
SPANRIB® has a very wide 820 mm cover width and a deep rib depth of 48 mm. The 0.42 BMT SPANRIB® has a minimum roof pitch of 2° (1 in 30) or for a 0.48 BMT 1° (1 in 50).
TRIMDEK® is available in long lengths and it has a generous cover width of 762 mm. Its BMT is 0.42 and 0.48 and it has a rib depth of 29 mm. The minimum pitch is 2° (1 in 30). The profile itself is a subtle square flute. TRIMDEK® can be used with Lysaght’s TRIM-KLIP® end and expansion joint system.
In addition to steel roofing BlueScope Distribution also distributes a wide range of accessories from valley guttering and different types of capping to flashing and roof screws, as well as downpipes.
