This roofing is designed for roofs of 5° pitch and over and is popular for small structures in the agricultural, industrial and domestic sectors such as housing, garages, general purpose sheds and smaller buildings. The sheets are 782mm wide with a cover of 650mm, while quite heavy they are relatively easy to handle. A 10 foot (3.05 metres) sheet weighs approximately 35 kg.
Marley Eternit profiled 6 sheeting is manufactured from Portland cement and water, reinforced with natural and synthetic fibres to produce a fibre cement roofing product that has a life expectancy of at least 50 years.We stock the natural grey sheets.
The semi compressed fibre cement sheets can absorb up to 25% of their dry weight in moisture, helping to minimise the risk of condensation dripping from the roof, a definite advantage for agricultural buildings
The product is also low maintenance, fibre cement profiled sheeting has good resistance to aggressive atmospheric conditions, making it resilient to corrosion and also long-lasting against the elements.

Holes through the sheet must be drilled, never punched, and be 2 mm larger than the fastener diameter. We sell a 6.5 x 90mm fasteners for timber which will drill through the Profile 3 sheet, open up the oversize hole and drill into the timber purloin. They also have an integral sealing washer.
Traditional fasteners, such as M6 x 80mm drive screws for timber, can be used but only in conjunction with sealing washers and caps. Whichever fastener is selected they should be positioned on the first full corrugation to the side of the side lap. At end laps, the fasteners should be 50mm from the top end of the lap.
