New "Kahu" Roofing Profile

Developed with architects for architects.

The Kahu™ roofing and cladding profile will add elegance, extra strength and style to any residential or commercial project. Designed for roofs to 4 degrees minimum pitch and as horizontal or vertical wall cladding. Manufactured in Christchurch from New Zealand Steel and available nationwide in COLORSTEEL® ENDURA® and COLORSTEEL® MAXX®.

Key Features and Benefits:

 The great innovative feature about the KahuTM  roofing profile is the double capillary overlap to the side lap that allows for greater performance:

 • Greater weather performance is achieved as the innovative capillary foot provides for an extra capillary barrier to the standard capillary overlap giving you extra peace of mind.

 • The double capillary overlap strengthens the profile overlap so it only requires a one rib lap. This increases the cover sheet size and speeds up installation time, providing for a cost effective roofing and cladding solution.
