6 types of Roofing Material solutions to consider for building, shop or industry in Malaysia

In the previous article, we looked at why as a citizen of Malaysia, you should be wary of constantly shifting weather conditions here, especially as a home, shop or car owner. The same applies for commercial buildings, warehouse or industry premises, where the type of roofing material used becomes even more significant in Malaysia due to valuable goods you store within, that might be sensitive to temperature, pressure or humidity, depending on the nature of your business.

Oft times, when company or warehouse owners consider renovation work for their promises, they tend to give their roofs the least amount of attention, as more budget is allocated for aesthetics and expansion, rather than maintenance.

But always remember than prevention is better than cure, and it is best to prepare for the storm by purchasing the appropriate type of roofing material to avoid long term problems such as deterioration or leakages.

Technological Innovation in Roofing Material production in Malaysia

Unlike the heydays when materials used to make roofs were pretty rife, today we have a host of attractive and advanced options that would cater to your every need, be it in terms of aesthetics, strength, structure type, cost, longevity and even quirky customizations like the one below.

Our Polycarbonate Industries Roofing Sheet or another name Polycarbonate Angular is made from some of the highest quality virgin polycarbonate resins, Polycarbonate Roofing Sheets are ideal for properties that are located in industrial areas.

Their following roofing material properties of polycarbonate help tremendously in Malaysia.

A) Weather Resistance

Being in Malaysia, this feature is a must-have for all roofs. Polycarbonate offers high weather resistance that will help you to save up a lot of costs in the long term from doing constant maintenance and at the same time, disperses sunlight and help to keep the internal environment of your property cool.

3. Polycarbonate Corrugated Roofing Sheet

Similar to metal deck roofs, Corrugated Roofing Sheets made of Polycarbonate provides more rigidity and toughness which will suit you if you are located in areas prone to heavy thunderstorms, and hails as well as being near higher rise architectures or buildings. Unlike embossed sheets, corrugated sheets are generally used more for outdoor purposes, as they are more durable, thus provides better longevity.

4. Aluminium Composite Panels (ACP)

Being one of the most readily available elements on earth, Aluminium Composite Panel (ACP) is not just cost effective for various applications, it is also immensely adaptable. It is able to be used for just about any industrial processes due to its properties such as low density, good conductivity, resistance to chemicals and ability to be merged with other materials, called Aluminium Composite.

As such, ACP stands out due to its highly modifiable nature for multiple forms of uses in terms of shapes, sizes, assembly, colour, and transformation. Due to this versatility, we can comfortably use ACP for both interior and exterior works, being aesthetically pleasing and easily recyclable or replaceable.

Want your building to look beautiful and attract customers into your premises? Look no further than Aluminium Composite Panels.           

Examples are roofing, awning, and building wall cladding, the latter use being highly popular as ACP provides incredible energy efficiency and ventilation. This way, the temperature of your internal building environment is well maintained, thus creating a comfortable working atmosphere.




5. Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Industries Roofing Sheet

Combining suitable polymers that differ in physical and chemical properties, FRP acts as an economic substitute to polycarbonate, usually to make a component which is tough and yet lightweight. Plus, the durability and innate flexibility of FRP Roofing Sheets makes it suitable for applications that require lower maintenance attention over the long term. Its transparency also allows buildings that need natural lighting such as a movie studio or a greenhouse.

6. Metal Deck Roofing Sheets is the most common Roofing Material in Malaysia

Finally, much similar to FRP, Metal Deck Roofing Sheets are durable, lightweight and superbly resilient under adverse weather conditions that make it a viable option for industries in Malaysia. Furthermore, metal deck too doesn’t need much maintenance over the long term and can be aptly recycled only after at least a few decades.
