Walking the talk


Have you experienced the latest roofing technology? DP955 from Dimond is a new profile designed to not only be stronger than traditional profiles but, with a wider cover width of 955mm, fewer sheets are required per job, saving time and money.


Key to the launch of this new profile has been getting people to walk on the demonstration rig which gives users a chance to see the benefits first hand.


The first thing noticed is the unique new design. Based on a Roman Trefold arch, the four ribs across the profile have a very distinct design which will set any job apart from the others.


The ribs have increased strength and durability which reduces the chances of damage from foot traffic, while giving the sheet the ability to span up to a maximum of 2.4m on internal spans in 0.40mm steel and up to 4m in 0.55mm steel.


This is a difference which becomes apparent when walking on the demonstration rig.


This inherent strength of the ribs has allowed the four-rib design, which means wider spans are achieved which is ideal for foot traffic as there is more than enough space for even the biggest feet.


Also, the increased cover width of 955mm means that fewer sheets are required overall on a job, resulting in cost and time savings.


The last advantage to this product is the confidence in buying from a company with more than 30 years’ experience in supplying New Zealand roofing.


DP955 was designed and manufactured in New Zealand to be durable and long lasting. It is now available ex-Auckland in a range of colours.
