How To Spruce Up Your Home With The Use Of Corrugated Iron Panels

COLORBOND Roofing Materials | Corrugated Iron

In the past, corrugated roofing sheets were often seen on top of sheds and barns; they were rarely chosen as the material used for home and commercial buildings roofs. At present, you will see this type of roof on many residential and commercial buildings or structures since they offer several benefits to property owners.

During production, corrugated iron roofing sheets are folded to produce ridges and grooves. The primary purpose of corrugating iron or metal sheets is to increase their tensile strength. Because of this, corrugated metal panels are some of the most durable, long-lasting building materials around. But even with their tensile strength, they are also lightweight and easy to install and maintain. They are also fire- and wind-resistant and one of the most energy efficient roofing materials in the market today. They come in different colours and sizes, too.

Because of their qualities and features, a lot of people have found other uses for corrugated iron panels. As such, you won’t only see them on top of houses, buildings, sheds, and other types of structures; you will also be able to find these metal panels inside them.

Below are some tips and ideas for using corrugated metal panels to design and update your home’s interior and exterior design:

Use the panels for wainscoting. Wood is the most popular material used for panelling or wainscoting but you can also use corrugated metal sheets for this project. A corrugated wainscot or panel outside your home can effectively break up long, monotonous blocks of colour and give it an additional eye-catching texture and design. It can also update the look of an older home straightaway due to its exceptional appearance. Lastly, using corrugated metal sheets as wainscot will also help protect your home’s exterior walls from the splash of your reticulation system or rain.

Install them in your bathrooms. The right colour of corrugated metal sheets can help spruce up your bathroom. Use a panel (or more) as a corrugated accent to upgrade a boring bathroom into one that looks livelier and interesting. Adding prints and mixing some other materials such as wood or sheetrock can also bring a pop of colour to thebathroom and make it feel more modern and comfortable.

Cover the kitchen island or bar with corrugated metal panels. If you want to give your kitchen a more modern look, start by renovating the kitchen bar or island. Simply wrap the bar or table in your choice of corrugated metal and colorbond roof flashing to upgrade a dated kitchen. You can opt for an interesting print to bring a touch of fun or a classic neutral colour if you’re going for a minimalist look. It’s an easy DIY project that won’t take up much of your time, and it’s fairly inexpensive, too.

You can shop online to find out the different colours and sizes corrugated iron sheets come in. Make sure you choose a trusted supplier so that you can purchase quality products online at the lowest prices. Select a store that offers fast delivery as well so that you can start on your DIY home improvement project as soon as possible.


Zincalume® Steel – Highly Recommended Roofing Material For Smart Buildin


Construction companies manage to deliver high-quality service to all of their clients not only by knowing the best methodologies and building principles; a great part of accomplishing this commitment is by using the topnotch building materials available in the market. When it comes to buying roofing materials, there’s a bounty of brands to choose from, but the one proving to be the brand that delivers on all its promises of durability, value for money, resilience and sustainability is Zincalume® steel, which is produced and distributed by industry leader Bluscope Steel.

This new generation steel was created to meet the evolving and growing demands of the industry dedicated to providing people impressive quality that’s completely cost-effective. Zincalume® steel’s patented ActivateTM technology introduces magnesium into the aluminium-zinc alloy coating which enhances galvanic protection by activating the aluminium. The result of this technology is a much tougher protective coating that’s more impervious to surface damage like scratches and scuffs which are commonly sustained during construction. It’s important to mention as well that the protective coating extends the lifespan of the steel, which basically means that even with minimal maintenance, there’ll be no need for fresh replacements for a significantly longer period (compared to other, more affordable brands of steel).

For those who are into green construction and are looking for a more eco-responsible steel to use for roofing and other applications, the next generation ZINCALUME® steel AM125 demonstrates a reduced environmental footprint in all of the 18 Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) categories assessed. Studies reveal that over a 17-year period, more than 5,000 panels have been subjected to a variety of extensive laboratory and “real world” climatic condition tests and all these managed to prove that Zincalume® steel is remarkably more durable, resilient and one of the worthiest choices of steel to use for construction work.

Since the launch of the product in August of 2013, roofing applications utilising Zincalume® steel has been backed by an unbeatable warranty of up to 36 years, even for applications closer to marine environments which are highly prone to corrosion due to the density of the air, presence of salt and other acidic elements.

Zincalume® steel is made by Bluscope steel and it’s identified by its brand mark, which is imprinted on the steel. Check for the brand mark to be sure it meets AS1397, and the “deemed to satisfy” requirements of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) for roofing and walling applications. Specify correctly by name — ZINCALUME® steel AM125 — and secure quality for the construction project.
