With the Tropical Health Research Facility at James Cook University’s Townsville campus set to make a vital impact on global tropical health and disease control, the architecturally striking building is creating visual impact – and will resist debris impact – thanks to the proven strengths of LYSAGHT SPANDEK® cladding.
A modern, simple square-corrugated roofing and walling cladding that is strong, impact resistant and economical - ideal for both commercial and residential applications.
- Highly serviceable roofing and walling cladding
- Bold ribs offer high strength and high water carrying capacity
- Nominal cover width: 700mm
- Minimum roof slope: 2°
Length: +0 mm, -15 mm
Cover Width: +4 mm, -4 mm
Next generation ZINCALUME® aluminium/zinc/ magnesium alloy coated steel complies with AS1397:2011 G550, AM125 (550 MPa minimum yield stress, 125 g/m2 minimum coating mass).
COLORBOND® steel is prepainted steel for exterior roofing and walling. It is the most widely used. The painting complies with AS/NZS 2728:2013 and the steel base is an aluminium/zinc alloy-coated steel complying with AS 1397:2011. Minimum yield strengths are G550 (550MPa), or G300 (300MPa) depending on profile. Minimum coating mass is AM100 (100g/m2).
COLORBOND® Metallic steel is prepainted steel for superior aesthetic qualities displaying a metallic sheen.
COLORBOND® Ultra steel is prepainted steel for severe coastal or industrial environments (generally within about 100-200 metres of the source). The painting complies with AS/NZS 2728:2013 and the steel base is an aluminium/ zinc alloy-coated steel complying with AS 1397:2011. Minimum coating mass is AM150 (150g/m2).
COLORBOND® Stainless steel is pre-painted steel and is used for severe and coastal environments. The painting complies with AS/NZS 2728:2013 and the steel base is a stainless steel complying with AISI/ASTM Type 430; UNS No. S43000.
The maximum recommended support spacings are based on testing in accordance with AS1562.1-1992, AS4040.1-1992 and AS4040.2-1992.
Roof spans consider both resistance to wind pressure and light roof traffic (traffic arising from incidental maintenance).
Wall spans consider resistance to wind pressure only.
