The roofing and cladding choice for New Zealanders across the country. It’s designed for both moderate inland conditions and severe coastal environments. Appropriate for roofing, cladding, gutters, downpipes, and fences.
To the steel core of each Colorsteel® Endura® prepainted steel sheet, a Zincalume® coating has been applied. The zinc and aluminium in this Zincalume® steel coating combine together to provide both stable corrosion protection overall and galvanic protection on cut edges. In conjunction with the primer and top paint coats, this means the investment in your new roof will be assured for many years to come.
*Ideal for moderate to severe environments (determined by your property’s proximity to the coast, geothermal areas and industrial environments)
*Base metal thickness is typically 0.40mm or 0.55mm
*Available in all Colorsteel colours
Be sure to contact a Steelformers representative to check stock levels of your chosen colour prior to ordering.
