The trapezoidal flute design still offers the optimum strength, mass and load-span characteristics compared to alternative profiles.
The Inverted Box Rib or better known as IBR has a square fluted profile used for Roofing or Cladding.
Available in transportable lengths and fixed by securing a screw through the narrow flute when used as roofing. Typically when used as side cladding the profile is fixed with broad flutes outwards.
