You can enjoy the outdoors feeling yet be protected from the sun, because Ampelite glass reinforced polyester sheeting has inbuilt protection against the transmission of harmful ultra violet rays. Sun without sunburn.

 

Australian Made

Ampelite sheeting is made to stand up to tough Australian conditions from Cairns to Cradle Mountain. When you choose Ampelite glass reinforced sheeting you can be sure that it has been made from the highest quality materials available using the world’s latest resin technology.

Planning

There are so many ways to use Ampelite ‘Corri-glas’ and ‘Trim-glas. And, the cost is moderate, so it’s good value too.  If you want plenty of light, lasting protection from the sun, and a great home feature, start by drawing up a simple plan.

Ampelite sheeting is lightweight and easy to handle and install. Even projects such as an outdoor living area or carport can be a satisfying Do-It-Yourself job.
Before you order materials or commence to build you should check that your proposed work complies with local council by-laws. Minimum recommended roof pitch is 5º.

The tables below give you the maximum span between battens or purlins for the 1200 and 1800 series sheeting. Sheet lengths available are also shown, and the ‘Sheet coverage table’ helps you calculate how many sheets to buy.
