The NZ Metal Roof and Wall Cladding Code of Practice is a comprehensive design & installation guide, and a recognised related document for Acceptable Solution E2/AS1 of the NZ Building Code.
Natural Lighting covers the use of translucent roofing material for providing interior illumination. These typically take the form of profiled sheeting, stand-alone units, or flat sheet systems.
Skylights profiled to match the roof sheeting may be made from glass reinforced polyester or polycarbonate. Proprietary stand-alone skylights may have polycarbonate, glass, or acrylic panels. Single or multi-skinned sheet products can be used in conjunction with proprietary support systems to replace glass in conservatory type situations.
Main headings include:
- Profiled roof lighting
- Stand-alone roof lighting
- Sheet systems
