Cladding With Enduring Style

Clad your roofing and walling project with the one profile that is always in fashion

CGI Corrugated has the advantage of high strength, adaptability and easy handling and installation. It is a practical and versatile cladding solution for roofing, walling and fencing applications.

CGI Corrugated is made from high tensile steel for strength and impact resistance. It is available in long lengths for added life and enhanced appearance. It has a non-syphoning side lap which reduces the risk of moisture transfer between sheets due to capillary action, thus reducing the risk of roof leakage. CGI Corrugated is available in un-painted zinc/al, and in a huge range of pre-painted colours.

Custom Made Cladding For Your Project

For lengths longer than 1.2 metres, CGI Corrugated cladding is rolled to the specific length you require, provided satisfactory transport and handling facilities can be arranged. If lengths longer than ten metres are required, consult your nearest Stratco for advice on handling and transport.

To give your roof a professional finish, painted self-drilling screws are available. Stratco offer a complete range of accessories and flashings for use with CGI sheeting, and can provide professional advice on specific flashings. In addition to straight CGI sheeting, pre-curved or bullnosed CGI sheets are available.

Design Considerations

CGI cladding has a 760mm coverage for .40mm BMT material and a 750mm coverage for .55mm BMT material. The minimum recommended roof pitch is five degrees (1 in 12). CGI roofing is subject to thermal expansion. Darker colours are affected more than light, and spring curved sheeting needs additional consideration. The maximum length before an expansion joint is needed is 24 metres for light colours, and 16 metres for dark colours. For spring curved sheeting this distance is 20 metres for light colours and 16 metres for dark colours.

Spring Curving

CGI Corrugated roofing may be spring curved using purlins at a maximum spacing of 800mm for .40mm BMT and 1000mm for .55mm BMT. The curve must have a minimum radius of 12m for .40mm BMT and 10m for .55mm BMT. The maximum radius is 35m to allow for sufficient drainage over a crest. The side laps must be sealed wherever the roof pitch is less than the recommended minimum.

Ordering CGI Corrugated

Sheets are available custom cut, allowing you to minimise waste, and enhance your design options. CGI Corrugated cladding is available in un-painted zinc/al, and in an attractive range of pre-painted colours. Subject to the delivery location, quantity and material availability, delivery is usually within 48 hours, or at an agreed time that suits your building schedule. Unless advised differently, a one tonne maximum is usually applied to larger packs.

Arrangements for unloading the truck are the responsibility of the customer, and should be arranged before ordering. When unloading you must ensure the load is adequately spread using spreaders and slings to prevent damage. If packs are to be loaded directly above structural members, they must be of sufficient strength, such as over portal frames, or braced roof trusses.

Fixing Recommendations

CGI sheets should be laid into the prevailing wind and sit neatly on the preceding roof sheet, with a side lap of 1.5 corrugations, as shown in the laying procedure below. They should be fixed within the recommended support spacings. Avoid ‘stretching’ the width of the sheet when installing, as this could allow wind and rain to enter.

Side lap fixing is recommended to maintain a weather proof seal and to secure the overlap especially when the roof is walked on occasionally. This is best done with either 8 x 12mm self drilling stitching screws or a 3.2mm blind rivet (rivets should be sealed to prevent water penetration). It is recommended side lap fasteners are secured mid-span, when spans exceed 900mm for roofing and 1200mm for walling.

On roofing, at the end of the sheets, the valleys of each corrugation should be turned up at crest of the roof and down into the gutter using a turn up/down tool.

Using CGI Corrugated

Stratco CGI will have a long, useful life if used according to Stratco specifications. While roofing materials in outer urban and rural areas may have a life-span in excess of 30 years, this can reduce to only a few years in coastal and industrial environments.

Zinc/al and pre-painted steel should not be used in aggressive areas such as near swimming pools and spas. It is important that dirt, soil, compost, paving sand, or other materials which retain moisture are not placed against steel sheeting. Concrete should not be poured against zinc/al. Check with Stratco before using in these areas.

Incompatible Metals

The best way of reducing corrosion is to keep incompatible metals apart. Zinc/al and pre-painted steel cannot be used with lead, copper and monel. Galvanised steel and pure zinc material can be used with zinc/al, but you must avoid water run-off from zinc/al onto galvanised material. Fixings such as rivets and self-drilling screws must be compatible with the material they are fixing.

Handling and Cutting of CGI

For safety, wear gloves when handling CGI. Ensure your hands or gloves are clean, especially when handling zinc/al which can mark. Use a coloured pencil for marking steel, as lead or black pencils contain graphite which promotes rusting. CGI is best cut using tin snips, but for larger cuts it may be necessary to use a power saw with a steel cutting blade or a power nibbler. Avoid using abrasive discs as they can cause burred edges and coating damage. Where possible cut sheets on the ground, and always clean off any swarf and metal filings progressively during the installation. Dispose of off-cuts carefully.

Insulation and Sealants

The use of blanket insulation is recommended in domestic roofing to assist in temperature, condensation and sound control. CGI can be used with an insulating blanket up to 55mm thick. Increased thicknesses require longer fasteners and greater care when installing.

When choosing a silicone sealant, ensure it is suitable for roofing and guttering use and of a non-acetic, amine free, neutral cure type. Sealants that smell of ammonia, vinegar or lemons are not usually suitable.


The performance of CGI over time depends on its correct application and maintenance. Maintenance should be performed as often as is required to remove any dirt, salt and pollutants. Where CGI is used in severely corrosive environments, cleaning should be performed more often. It is important that screws have the same life expectancy as the CGI cladding you have specified.

Packs of CGI should always be kept dry and stored above ground level while on site. If the sheets have become wet, they should be separated, wiped and placed in the open to dry.
