Sisalation® Metal Roof Sarking Medium Duty 1350mm x 60m Roll (433)



Sisalation® Metal Roof is a strong, tear resistant pliable building membrane designed for use as sarking under residential metal roofs. The sophisticated membrane comprises of an outer layer of aluminium foil bonded to a high density kraft paper. This is then bonded to an additional layer of foil using a heavy coating of flame retardant adhesive. The laminate is reinforced with strands of yarn to deliver exceptional strength. This specification lends Sisalation® Metal Roof as the product of choice in metal roof applications as the foil-paper composition reduces the level of noise generated in metal roofs (otherwise known as “noisy roof sydndrome”), thereby improving the acoustic ambience of the home. The inclusion of a coloured anti-glare coating reduces the incidence of reflected glare during installation. The proprietary design and manufacturing techniques employed in the development of Sisalation® Metal Roof sarking accounts for its remarkable strength. Sisalation® Metal Roof sarking assists in minimising draughts which enables bulk insulation to perform more effectively. Additionally, when overlapped and sealed with Vapastop® 883 aluminium foil tape, Sisalation® Metal Roof sarking provides an effective secondary skin against moisture, vapour, wind, heat and dust penetration. The tough barrier protects the building frame by minimising the amount of rain and dust wind blows into the roof. Additionally, Sisalation® Metal Roof sarking contributes to the thermal performance of building systems. When installed adjacent to a minimum 20mm air-space, its reflective surface provides increased thermal performance and contributes to the overall energy efficiency of a building.
