What is a Corrugated Metal Roofing Panel?

Posted by Kimberly Reichert on Feb 28, 2019 11:21:47 AM

A corrugated panel has a repeating wavy or rippled pattern across its design. It was the first mass-produced metal panel design in the United States. These panels can be used for roofing, siding, decking, and flooring. Corrugated panels are connected by overlapping the sheets, and then securing them in place with exposed fasteners.

S-5!® CorruBracket™ for Corrugated Metal Roofing Panels

CorruBracket

 

The CorruBracket can be used to mount almost anything to corrugated metal roofing and is compatible with 7/8″ and 3/4″ corrugated roofing. This bracket requires no messy sealant during installation. It comes with factory-applied butyl sealant already in the base, and the reservoir conceals the sealant, preventing UV degradation.

CorruBracket 100T

 

CorruBracket 100T is the perfect choice for the common corrugated metal roof profiles in North America. S-5!® CorruBracket™ 100T for Corrugated Metal Roofing PanelsUse this bracket for solar panel mounting via rail or with DirectAttached™ methods.

CorruBracket 100T is affixed to the crest of the corrugation, leaving the drainage plane free of holes to protect against leaks. CorruBracket 100T already comes with a factory-applied rubber gasket seal on the base. The reservoir also conceals the EPDM from UV exposure, preventing UV degradation. 

Application Use: Medium-duty - The bracket can be attached directly to the sheeting, accommodating ancillary attachment anywhere along the corrugation.

Application Use: Heavy-duty - The bracket can be fixed into the underlying substrate for additional support without crushing the corrugation.

WHO INVENTED THE CORRUGATED PANEL?:

Henry Robinson Palmer patented corrugated iron in 1829. Palmer was an architect and engineer to the London Dock Company. Corrugated panels became specifically useful when building prefabricated structures. Additionally, the material was touted for its corrosion-resistance and strength. Around the 1890s, wrought iron was replaced with steel. Today, corrugation is made through a process called roll forming. Sheet metal is rolled through dies that form the desired corrugation in the metal.

The most common corrugated materials include coated carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and copper. Even non-metal materials are corrugated as well. Plastic and fiberglass are corrugated and then used as translucent ceilings or roof lights.
