Eurotray® Lite

Featuring smooth seams and concealed fixings, this profile has the capability of being long run and is suitable for most architectural designs, it’s robust but stylish design makes it ideal for New Zealand alpine settings.

Roll-forming facilities at: Christchurch

Sheet lengths:
Eurotray® is custom run to order. Where long sheets are used, consideration must be given to:

  • Special transportation licences
  • Should be run on-site
  • Site access for special lifting equipment
  • Fixing techniques to accommodate thermal expansion


Photovoltaic laminates (PVL’s) can be installed on to this profile at an additional cost when the cladding is completed and other trades have finished or it can be installed at a later date.
Laminates are 348mm wide and available in 5.910mm and 2.585mm lengths. Lead time of 16 weeks
Laminates cannot be installed on raking sections of roofs consult with Dimond Roofing 0800 DIMOND (0800 346 663) for further information

The Dimond Roofing Eurotray® Lite profile is only available in a fixed cover width, and cannot be manually folded. When the profile is used as wall cladding, careful attention is required to sheet set-out and sheet width tolerances to ensure the sheet modules align to wall openings.

Oil Canning

Oil Canning is the visible waviness in the flat areas of metal roofing and walling. Oil canning produces an aesthetic effect inherent in standing seam tray profiles and profiles/flashings with wide flat elements. It does not cause detriment to product performance.

Oil canning can occur during the forming and installation processes and during thermal expansion of the roof sheeting during its life cycle. The effect can be more or less pronounced depending on differing light and sun angle conditions and the coating gloss levels.

For fully supported standing seam tray profiles, oil canning can be reduced by the vented roof underlay (e.g. Tyvek Metal), in addition, backer rods under the tray can also be used.

There are several options to reduce the oil canning effect in tray-type profiles and flashings, for example,

a) increasing the thickness of the material,

b) using stiffening swages in wide flat elements and

c) limiting flat elements to less than 150mm width.

For further information, please refer to the New Zealand Metal Roof and Wall Cladding Code of Practice, Section 12.3.

Fastener Design

Fastener Design

Eurotray® Lite roof cladding must always be installed over a plywood (12mm minimum) substrate with a moisture content of less than 18% and made wind tight, with purlin supports underneath at 600mm centres in low to high wind zones and 400mm centres for very high and extra high wind zones. The fasteners should be no closer than 10mm to the edge.

A 3mm expansion gap be should be provided between the sheets. All joints should be staggered and taped over before placing underlay, Dimond Roofing recommends the use of vented type underlay such as tyvek metal or Covertek 407 with drainage mat. This allows added air-flow between the underside of the tray and substrate, it also helps to reduce oil-canning in the tray.

Fasteners that are used to secure Eurotray® down as a roof cladding must penetrate through the substrate and into the purlin a minimum of 30mm for timber and 6mm for steel purlins. For wall cladding, the fasteners must be long enough to pass through the substrate, cavity batten and into the main frame by 30mm for timber and 6mm for steel.

Fasteners must be fixed closer together on the periphery edges of all roofs in areas of High to Extra High Wind Zones.

Unlike profiled metal cladding, the point load imposed on a fully supported cladding is supported by the substrate underneath.
