Corri-Glas - Corrugated Fibreglass Clear Roofing & Skylights

Enjoy the Benefits of Corri-Glas
Ideal for skylighting, Corri-glas reinforced polyester fibreglass sheeting cuts out 99% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, allowing you to enjoy the experience of being outdoors while still being protected from the harsh sun. This fibreglass sheeting is manufactured using only high-quality materials and the world’s latest resin technology. A tough polyester film forms an integral part of the sheet and increases its lifespan by preventing reinforcing fibres from becoming exposed on its surface. Corri-glas fibreglass roofing is available in three strong profiles: Corrugated, 5-Rib, and Greca, and four colours: clear, opal, grey, and green.

Planning
Corri-glas fibreglass sheets are lightweight and easy to handle and install. Before you order materials or commence building, check the following tables which will give you the maximum span between battens or purlins for the 1200/0.8mm series sheeting. Available sheet lengths are also shown, and the sheet coverage table will help you calculate how many sheets you require.

Correct Installation is Important

Corri-glas fibreglass sheeting is fixed and flashed on similar principles as steel roofing. Minimum fall is 5 degrees. Start by fixing the first sheet at the end farthermost from the usual wind direction. If end laps are necessary, start at the bottom corner. Corri-glas Corrugated and Greca sheets should be crest-fixed at every second or third corrugation at the ends and every third or fourth corrugation on intermediate supports. Corri-glas 5 Rib sheets should be crest-fixed on every rib at both ends and on every second rib on intermediate supports. Always use Ampelite fixing screws and weather seals.

Allowance needs to be made when drilling screw holes so that the sheet can move freely as it expands and contracts. Screw holes must have a minimum diameter of 10mm. Avoid over-tightening as this may cause the sheet to crack or split. Please download a copy and carefully follow the Corri-glas Installation Guide

Handy Tips
You could try making some practice holes using an off-cut or part of a sheet which will be covered by ridging or flashings, etc. You may find it easier to drill the hole for the screw first and then enlarge this to 10mm for the washer.

Please note
As with all plastic roofing products, Corri-glas is subject to the effects of weathering and the very high levels of ultra-violet light which are present in New Zealand. This means that, over the years, there will be some loss of light transmission and impact resistance. Please consult our Corri-glas brochure for the warranty.
