Tapered roofing profiles are those where the cover width of each profile is varied (gradually increased or reduced) to achieve irregular shaped roofs for exciting architectural effect.
Both the Spantech Longreach 800 and Longreach 650 profiles can be tapered. The cover widths can be varied by approximately 100mm. Refer to the Longreach 800 or Longreach 650 profile pages for further details.
Trapezoidal buildings and fan shaped roof lines are easily achieved.
Manually cutting profiles achieves a wider variety of irregular shaped roof lines.
Structural Support for Tapered Profiles
Profiles can be supported on straight beams to achieve irregular shaped roof plans.
Straight beams set at different or opposing angles can be spanned with tapering profiles for a twisted effect.
Alternatively, profiles with varying cover widths can be supported on curved or undulating beams for striking architectural effect.
Some tapered profiles may require Tek screws along the rib to ensure a secure and watertight connection.

Spantech profiles were originally developed for roofing. But the strength and versatility of these unique profiles makes them cost effective and suitable for a wide range of applications.
