Stramit® Curved Corrugated steel roofing can be pre-curved to produce a variety of interesting effects that enhance both modern and traditional building designs. Straight sheets can be combined with convex and concave curves to create highly original and aesthetically pleasing roof shapes.
The heritage bullnose veranda is the best-known application of curved corrugated sheeting but by no means the only one. Stramit® Curved Corrugated roofing is also a popular choice on contemporary steel-roofed homes and commercial buildings.
Stramit® Curved Corrugated cladding is only intended for use in commercial/industrial/residential roof or wall cladding applications. Do not use for any other purpose.
Stramit® Curved Corrugated cladding is manufactured from G300 colour coated steel or zinc-aluminium alloy coated steel. In some locations galvanised and severe environment colour coated steel may be available by arrangement. Colour coated steels are in accordance with AS2728 – Category 3 and, for the substrate, with AS1397. Zinc-aluminium alloy coated AZ150 and galvanised Z450 conform to AS1397.
Stramit has a comprehensive range of colours as standard. Refer to the Colorbond® colour chart.

Stramit has in-house, purpose built, testing equipment used to design, develop and improve products for the Australian market. In addition many Stramit® products are tested or witnessed by independent organisations. These include:
- Cyclone Structural Testing Station
(James Cook University)
- University of Queensland
This ongoing research and development activity ensures that Stramit remains at the forefront of innovation, design and consumer information
Stramit® Curved Corrugated cladding will give excellent durability in almost all locations. It is however important to choose the correct coating for each application environment.
Please refer to page 3 of the Stramit® Curved Corrugated & Bullnose Roof Cladding Product Technical Manual for the two tables on exposure conditions.
All building products need to be checked for compatibility with adjacent materials. These checks need to be for both direct contact between materials, and where water runs from one material to another. The following guidelines generally avoid material incompatibility:
- For zinc-aluminium alloy coated steel, colour coated steel and galvanised steel roofs avoid copper, lead, green or treated timber, stainless steel and mortar or concrete.
- In addition galvanised steel roofs should not receive drainage from aluminium or any inert materials, such as plastics, glass, glazed tiles, colour coated and zinc-aluminium alloy. Contact Stramit for more detailed information.
