RM900


RM900 is a high-ribbed trapezoidal roofing product designed for greater spans, offering exceptional economic advantages on commercial and industrial buildings.

RM900 is a cost effective alternative to lower ribbed roofing offering greater spanning capabilities and wider coverage allowing fixers to cover greater areas at a faster pace. With a fully supported male rib, fixers find it provides extra strength and weather proofing around the fastenings.

RM900 clear sheeting is available in a matching profile in a variety of specifications.
