Length


Metroll supplies METROCLAD® 850/864 sheeting cut to
customer specifications.

Maximum recommended lengths need to be restricted
to 8 metres. Lengths to be manufactured need site
measurements, not those taken off plans.

Handling of Material

When handling METROCLAD® 850/864 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.

Clean Up

Prior to departing the work site, remove all foreign 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 system.

Cutting

METROCLAD® 850/864 wall 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.

Compatibility

Never use lead flashings with ZINCALUME® steel or
COLORBOND® steel METROCLAD® 850/864 wall cladding.

Materials

METROCLAD® 850/864 wall cladding can be roll formed
to order in galvanised steel and ZINCALUME® steel in a
wide range of COLORBOND® steel. Please enquire at
your nearest Metroll office about colours, lead time and
availability.

Harsh Environments

Avoid using METROCLAD® 850/864 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.

Designs and drawings need to specify METROCLAD®

Availability & Delivery
