Built Up roof and cladding systems have been used for around fifty years in the UK and involve profiled steel or aluminium thin-gauge metal sheets. These profile sheets are often referred to by their shape: Trapezoidal profiles are those whose shape is based on a basic trapezoid or trapezium. Sinusoidal profile are based on the shape of the sine wave.
Trapezoidal roof systems - These systems are typically made up of a lightweight profile liner, such 19/1000 0.4mm gauge is often used. The 19 refers to the overall depth created by the profile, in millimetres; the 1000 to the effective cover width - i.e. one metre. 0.4mm is the material gauge.
