Length

Metroll supplies METRIB® sheeting cut to order as
required, but is normally limited to 5m in length. Lengths
to be manufactured need to be site measurements, not
those taken off plans.

Handling of Material

When handling METRIB® care should be taken to
preserve the quality of the finish. Packs should be kept
dry and stored above ground on dunnage whilst on site.
If sheets become wet, these need to be separated, wiped
and placed in the open air to dry.

Cutting

METRIB® cladding can be cut by using a circular saw
with a metal cutting blade, power shears or nibblers.
When you cut COLORBOND® steel sheeting ensure
the coloured surface is placed downwards to lessen
the likelihood of swarf being embedded in the exposed
surface.

Clean Up

Prior to departing the work site at the end of each work
day, remove all debris, screws, rivets and especially
any swarf from drilling or cutting from the roof surface.
Failure to do this may result in premature corrosion of the cladding material.

Compatibility

Never use lead flashings with ZINCALUME® steel or
COLORBOND® steel wall cladding.

Other Materials

METRIB® wall cladding can be roll formed to order in
ZINCALUME® steel, galvanised steel or COLORBOND®
steel colours. Please enquire at your local Metroll branch
as to colours, lead time and availability.

Harsh Environments

Avoid using METRIB® cladding within 1km of industrial,
chemical, marine or unusually corrosive environments.
If your project is located within a corrosive region please
contact your nearest Metroll office for advice on the right
product to use.

Design & Building Specifications

Designs and drawings need to specify METRIB® as
manufactured by Metroll Pty Ltd. METRIB®, needs to be
fixed in a workmanlike manner and in accordance with
the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Availability & Delivery

METRIB® is available directly from the national network of Metroll offices. Please contact your local Metroll office or distributor for relevant delivery days to your area.

Please assist us to supply your material in good order by
ensuring that suitable arrangements have been made to
unload our trucks.

You can avoid damage when lifting long lengths of
sheeting by crane by evenly loading the sheets.
