Coated Steel for Logistics and Warehouse Roofs in Malaysia

Logistics and warehouse roofs play a crucial role in ensuring the safe storage of your assets, operation efficiency, as well as the safety of your employees.

Thus, maintaining your facility’s roof is essential in ensuring smooth operations and avoiding safety hazards.

Exceptionally durable and reliable, coated steel is one of the recommended roofing materials for logistics and warehouses as it delivers a longer lifespan compared to other roof materials.

Why You Should Choose the Right Profile for Your Logistics and Warehouse Roofs

1. The Need for Long-Length and Leak-Proof Roof

In particular, logistic and warehouse roofs require roofs that are longer in length.

This is to reduce lapping and minimise the chances of leaking, subsequently safeguarding the integrity of the goods and products stored within your facility.

Here, it’s best to choose a long-length roofing profile that allows optimal leak-proof performance.

2. Ensure Good Water Run-Off Performance

It is essential to ensure that your roof has effective water run-off performance.

This is because a roof with poor drainage capabilities can result in water ponding, which deteriorates your roof’s performance and significantly reduces its lifespan.

3. Customisable to Meet Specific Thermal and Acoustic Performance

Last but not least, should your building require thermal or acoustic requirements, metal roofing and cladding are customisable to cater for those needs.

After all, they are essential to maintain optimal storage conditions for products and goods, promote the well-being of your employees and improve overall indoor comfort.
