Aluminium sheet roofing is a premium choice of metal roofing material as it offers superior corrosion resistance in comparison to other roofing options.
Aluminium is an excellent choice of material for coastal locations due to its anti-corrosion characteristics. As a bare, natural metal, aluminium has a tendency to age poorly, however when combined with a painted surface, it is long-lasting and easily maintained.
Due to its strength-to-weight ratio being among the highest of all common metals, aluminium sheet is the most lightweight option for roofing. A thinner piece of material can easily do the job of thicker metals. This lightness means aluminium cools quickly once it stops receiving direct sunlight and stores minimal heat – perfect for the harsh Australian environment.
As with most metal roofing products, aluminium is cost effective, durable and simple to install. Builders and roofers have the option of moulding the product into any shape and design required without overstepping their budget.
If the roof receives any damage, working with aluminium makes any maintenance problems an easy fix. Even in highly-corrosive industrial environments, aluminium sheet roofing is resistant to fumes and vapours of chemicals like ammonia, carbon-dioxide and harmful acids.

The PERMALITE® range fills an important niche in the BlueScope portfolio of products which includes claddings suitable for typical requirements as well as others designed to suit tougher coastal and industrial conditions. For aggressive environments when durability, good looks and cost effectiveness are equally important, PERMALITE® aluminium is the product to specify.
All PERMALITE® aluminium cladding profiles, purlins and flashings are produced entirely from marine grade aluminium, an alloy specifically developed for its resistance to corrosion in marine or industrial environments.
Where corrosion protection is paramount, such as in chemical plants or industrial applications where sulphates, chlorides or other pollutants are likely to come in contact with the metal, PERMALITE® aluminium cladding delivers exceptional results.
