Lean manufacturing is the process of cutting back on certain materials or speeding up certain processes to lower the overall cost of manufacturing. There can be key benefits to this approach to manufacturing, but it's important to move forward with a balanced view of lowering costs without compromising quality. This blog looks at that concept, but it also delves into other information related to the manufacturing and industrial fields. Ultimately, this blog is designed to help manufacturing professionals as well as B2B clients who purchase products or outsource processes to this field. If you have questions, I hope that you find the answers you need here.

What 3 Benefits Can You Expect From Colorbond Roofs?

by Mark Peters

Metallic roofs and (most especially) Colorbond roofs are some of the most popular roofing materials in the country. It is because Colorbond is stylish, lightweight and thermally insulated. The roofs have also been proven to stand very strong against the rough Australian weather. The roof is primarily made of coated steel. It's resistance to weather damage is what is making it so popular in Australian homes. Here are the other qualities which put these roofs a notch above all the others.

1. The flexibility of the design 

Colorbond roofs are known to deliver excellent spanning, which makes them ideal for parts of the house where you need column-free areas. The roofs also come in a wide variety of colours, which gives the contractor and the owner of the building a lot to choose from when it comes to the creation of an aesthetically pleasing roof. The roofs are also available in a variety of profiles that are suitable for different types of home design. The bonus here is that you will not need to paint the roof as much as you will need to paint other metallic roofs.

2. Strength

The roof has been used in some of the areas of the country which experience the harshest weather conditions. When it is properly installed and well-maintained, it will give you decades of service. Steel is known for its superior structural strength, and you can be assured that it will not blow off in the wind or cave under the weight of the snow. The roof has been given an N3 rating in areas such as Victoria, which means that it will stand wind speeds of up to 148 km/hr. 

3. Harvesting water

Another fantastic thing about this particular roof is that once installed; you will be in a position to harvest water from the rain. The material used in the creation of the roof is better than other materials because it is not absorbent. It is entirely waterproof, which makes it easy for the material to collect rainwater for domestic and agricultural use. 

Other qualities that make Colorbond roofs excellent is the fact that they are fire-resistant, and they are very friendly to the environment. The roofs also happen to have excellent thermal heat insulation. It means that when using them, your house will trap in the moisture within it and you will not have to use that much in energy bills and expenditure.
