Smoke control innovation

Passive smoke and fire venting concerns solved


As a result of concerns that roof lighting products may not offer an acceptable solution for passive smoke and fire venting, Roofing Industries are pleased to bring APC Dayliter® to the NZ Market. With internationally recognised FM plus UL accreditations, these innovative passive smoke and fire vents which double as thermal rated natural roof lights, are now readily accepted by both designers and fire engineers as an acceptable solution for use in commercial projects throughout N.Z.

Installed as either retrofitted product (and thereby reducing sprinkler installation costs), or alternatively installed into new projects, the APC Dayliter® dome product  is manufactured from a unique patented compound which  utilizes a low drop-out temperature to provide satisfactory venting. Requiring minimum installation, no electrical wiring or back up systems and needing no further ongoing maintenance costs, this is most certainly a low cost and practical solution

An important safety feature associated with the APC dayliter® is the lightweight safety frame incorporated into the design of each unit thereby preventing firemen and or maintenance personnel accidentally falling through the roof

The standard size of each unit is 2430mm x 1210mm unit (however other configurations are available) with each product  manufactured from high grade aluminium alloy which in turn supports the patented high impact dome system.

Roofing Industries - marathon product testing

Roofing Industries – Completes a “Marathon”……… Product testing on the NZMRM Test Rig


news test rig


Roofing Industries has undertaken exhaustive testing of its Roofing and Cladding profiles utilising the NZRM Test rig. The profiles were subjected to a range of tests including to 6.0kPa UDL (wind uplift –static load) •  1.1 kN Point load (trafficability) Cyclic load up to 1000 cycle times per test all in order to identify any potential failure areas


Testing involved Zincalume®, Galvanised, Aluminium and Stainless Steel roofing and cladding products covering a range of thicknesses, and of equal importance, incorporating both varying fastening products and fastening patterns


The purpose of Roofing Industries undertaking this mammoth testing programme, (other than proving suitability our products as being fit for purpose), was to test our products as part of a “system” with the ultimate aim of providing utmost confidence to specifiers and customers alike.  Rather than just test the roof sheeting, the process involved testing all associated products in situ as part of a complete system


All company technical literature which now clearly indentifies both appropriate purlin spacing and fastening systems under different loads and across all products has been extensively revised and republished utilising the information obtained from the test results, NZMRM Code of Practice and E2/AS1 as applicable, and is available as Downloads
