Mona ValeROCKPOOL APARTMENTS
A multi-award winning development designed by world renowned architect Alexander Popov, Rockpool is a boutique executive living complex fronting the golden sands and surf of glorious Mona Vale Beach, on Sydney’s northern peninsula, and comprises 17 stylish residential apartments in one- and two-storey formats.
From the beach, Rockpool presents a series of shallow-vaulted portals with openings which lead through to a diverse range of apartment types and also give sea views to residents not on the beachfront.
Stunning in its design, when Rockpool required reroofing the body corporate naturally sought products which would maintain their good looks in this beautiful but challenging coastal environment. Corrosion resistant PERMALITE® marine grade aluminium cladding was the ideal solution.

THE LYSAGHT SOLUTION
Prior to the reroofing project, Lysaght performed an initial site assessment with the roofer as both vaulted, curving roof sections and also very low pitched areas of ‘flat’ roofing were required. Various PERMALITE® aluminium profiles were discussed, with pre-rolled PERMALITE WAVELINE® cladding being selected for the vaulted roof sections and PERMALITE V-RIB® cladding chosen for the low pitched roof areas. Both profiles create attractive linear visuals and were specified in the crisp, clean PERMALITE® colour GULL GREY™
Lysaght also met with Rockpool’s body corporate to discuss their requirements and provide warranty advice. With PERMALITE® aluminium cladding being backed by a 30 year corrosion warranty, proven performance in similar environments, outstanding thermal performance and low maintenance good looks, the unit body corporate was also confident that LYSAGHT PERMALITE® cladding was indeed the ideal solution for the prestigious apartment complex.
With residents living in the apartments during the reroofing project - and limited space on site - the Lysaght team then worked closely with the roofer to ensure product was delivered as and when required for timely installation and minimal disruption to residents.
LYSAGHT PERMALITE® ALUMINIUM CLADDING
Providing a long lasting, durable, lightweight alternative to other cladding materials and requiring minimal maintenance to remain corrosion free, PERMALITE® aluminium cladding also delivers high reflectivity and low emissivity values for improved thermal performance.
PERMALITE® roof and wall cladding is available in either Mill Finish, an unpainted smooth lustrous finish which will dull relatively quickly and enhances corrosion resistance, or pre-painted on one or both sides in a range of quality painted finishes featuring seven standard contemporary colours and additional colours on request.
LYSAGHT PERMALITE WAVELINE® CLADDING
A classic Australian corrugated profile used in traditional as well as modern applications, PERMALITE WAVELINE® cladding is available in both a 762mm cover width and a 990mm cover width for greater fixing economy, with a capillary drain in the rib overlap ensuring weather security. These cover widths also provide a cladding sheet which can also be used effectively on walls.
LYSAGHT PERMALITE V-RIB® CLADDING
With a striking angular corrugated form, PERMALITE V-RIB® is an attractive roofing and walling profile that ensures fast fixing and minimum wastage thanks to its symmetry and large 915mm cover width.
