Used in this project

Stramit Monoclad®
Stramit Speed Deck Ultra®
One of the first major projects to specify the Stramit FarLap® roof lap system was a huge Metcash distribution centre in western Sydney comprising two buildings with a total roof area of 100,000 square metres.

The two warehouses, a 60,000 square metre dry goods building and a 40,000 square metre refrigerated building, were both roofed with Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® concealed fixed decking sheets connected by Stramit FarLap® roof lap joints.

The FarLap® joint allows Stramit Speed Deck Ultra® concealed fixed decking sheets to be lapped and connected via the snap-in-place joint and seal. This eliminated the need for “step-down” joints as well as eliminating the site access problems associated with long-run continuous roof sheeting.

FarLap® was selected as a cost-effective solution to managing the long roof runs, but brought the added advantage of allowing maximum internal building heights to be achieved by eliminating steps in the roof.

The roofing installers, Ideal Metal Roofing, were “thrilled” by the ease of laying the FarLap® system, which sped up the installation of the roof and eliminated the requirement for step flashing, which would have been labour intensive and time consuming.
