The Right Steel For Your Location.

From Country to Coast, There’s a LYSAGHT Roof
to Meet Every Challenge

No matter where you’re building LYSAGHT steel roofing can be manufactured using a grade of COLORBOND® steel perfectly suited for the local environmental conditions.

While standard COLORBOND® steel will accommodate the roofing, walling and guttering needs of homes built in most locations, specialist grades are also available to suit more demanding environments such as those by the sea or areas prone to industrial emissions.

Roofing For Challenging Environments

COLORBOND® Stainless steel:

  • Coastal sites within 100 metres of breaking surf where there is a constant salty smell and salt spray in the air
  • Sites within close proximity to industrial emissions

COLORBOND® Ultra steel:

  • Coastal sites approximately 100 to 200 metres from breaking surf where there may still be a smell of salt or salt spray in the air
  • Sites situated 100 to 200 metres from the source of industrial emissions (fumes and/or particulate fallout) where the effects are typically lessened

Walling For Challenging Environments

COLORBOND® Stainless steel:

  • Coastal areas up to 500 metres from breaking surf, or in calm marine locations

COLORBOND® Ultra steel:

  • Sites situated between 500 and 1000 metres from marine influences
