The DRI-CLAD™ Story Where uninsulated roofs and walls are being designed and constructed, traditionally underlay along with mesh is installed under metal roofing and cladding to prevent any potential water leakage through the sheeting into a building . Unfortunately, condensation can still form on the underside of uninsulated metal roof and cladding plus underlays particularly when the Dew Point and Condensation reaches a point whereby moisture droplets form. Once saturation point is reached, water droplets permeate into the structure potentially damaging any goods “housed” within the building Utilising the very latest in technology, Roofing Industries has perfected the lamination of an absorbent self-adhesive fleece to the reverse side of the roofing and cladding profile during the manufacturing process which in turn absorbs and traps the moisture within the fleece cells. Once the dew point is no longer prevalent and the building utilizes mechanical ventilation and a vapour barrier is provided, moisture captured by the fleece is released harmlessly back into the atmosphere as normal humidity.
