In times of heat, we feel the need to cover as much of our homes as possible to protect us a little from the sun’s rays or to protect our goods that may be affected by this phenomenon, such as: the car, instruments of washing, and the cellar area, among others.

There are many types of metal sheets. However, it is the 32-gauge R-72 profile sheets that are the cheapest in the market. When we talk about type R-72 are the sheets that have five small channels and their nominal width is 0.82 meters, having an effective width of 0.72 meters. The gauge refers to the thickness and / or weight of the sheet, in this case, it would be one of the thinnest but strong enough to have no problems at the time of installation.
In this type of sheet we have 3 different finishes such as:
Galvanized sheet: It is a sheet of steel with a Zinc coating, which offers greater resistance to corrosion of the steel and that also helps to extend the life of the product.
Zintro Alum sheet: It is a sheet of steel, and well, as the name implies, it is coated with zinc and aluminum, said alloy of materials helps to provide better corrosion resistance and helps to have a higher percentage of thermal reflectivity.
Zintro Color sheet: This type of steel sheet, is ideal to give a better view of your project in an economical way, it is painted red at the top and white at the bottom.
After having mentioned the types of sheets that could be recommended for this type of simple and economic facilities, we have to emphasize that another important part and that generally raises the costs, is the part of the structure, which is why we recommend using one of the following materials.
This profile will be used on average of 2”x 1” will be the function of loader, which is where the sheet would go, as long as the width or length of the area to be covered does not exceed 3 meters, if this occurs, Ideally, it would be to occupy a 3”x 1 ½” tubular profile or choose to use a pollen mount described below.
This structural profile can be used as 3”or 4” as mentioned before, everything would depend on the clearing to cover. On this occasion we would have the option to choose in painted or galvanized.
