Roof sarking is a type of membrane that is installed underneath the roofing material and above the building's structural framing. It is typically made from a thin, pliable material such as foil, paper, or synthetic fabric. Roof sarking serves as an additional layer of protection against the elements and can help to increase the energy efficiency of a building.
Roof sarking helps to prevent moisture from penetrating the roof, reducing the risk of damage to the building's structural framing and other components.
By reflecting radiant heat away from the roof, sarking can help to reduce the amount of heat that enters the building, which can lead to lower cooling costs in the summer.
Some types of sarking are designed to be fire-resistant, which can help to reduce the risk of fire damage to the building.
Depending on the material used, sarking can help to reduce the amount of outside noise that enters the building, providing a quieter interior environment.
PerformINS Metal Roof Sarking is manufactured to the highest industry standards. Our specialised manufacturing process bonds together Aluminium Foil to a high strength reinforcing Polymer mesh using a flame retardant adhesive. Our Reinforcing Polymer Mesh is purposely treated blue in colour to reduce reflective glare problems when installing roof products.

Sisalation® Metal Roof is a reinforced, pliable building membrane designed for use as sarking under residential and commercial metal roofs.
Manages condensation in roof spaces, improving the overall moisture control of a building.
By acting as an effective secondary skin, Sisalation® Metal Roof minimises draughts and allows bulk wall insulation to perform more effectively.
The foil-paper composition of Sisalation® Metal Roof Sarking reduces the level of noise generated in metal roofs, improving the acoustic ambience of the building.
When sealed, Sisalation® Metal Roof protects the building frame by minimising the amount of rain and dust wind blows into the roof.
When installed adjacent to an air cavity, Sisalation® Metal Roof contributes to the overall Total R-value of a building, providing increased comfort to building occupants.
Sisalation® Metal Roof is suitable for use in bushfire areas with a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of 0 – 40 in accordance with AS 3959-2009.
Sisalation® Tuff Wrap is a renowned reflective wall wrap membrane designed to protect homes and buildings against radiant heat.
Sisalation® Tuff Wrap is exceptionally strong, providing reliable protection against radiant heat.
When installed adjacent to an air cavity, Sisalation® Tuff Wrap contributes to the overall Total R-value of a building, providing increased comfort to building occupants.
Sisalation® Tuff Wrap minimises the amount of moisture absorbed by the frame during construction, helping to maintain the integrity of the building.
By acting as an effective secondary skin, Sisalation® Tuff Wrap minimises draughts within wall cavities, allowing bulk wall insulation to perform more effectively.
Sisalation® Tuff Wrap allows internal building works to commence once the roof has been installed, allowing for expedited project completion.
Sisalation® Tuff Wrap is suitable for use in bushfire areas with a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of 0 – FZ in accordance with AS 3959-2009.
Sisalation® Tile Roof Sarking is a pliable building membrane that provides robust protection under concrete and terracotta tile roofs, excluding slate.
It shields buildings against radiant heat
Enhances the overall Total R-value of a structure, and improves comfort for occupants when installed next to an air cavity.
This sarking also resists puncturing and tearing during roof tile installation, preventing rain ingress, especially when tiles are cracked or damaged.
Safeguards against moisture content fluctuations of timber trusses, minimising the possibility of nail plate pull-out.
Acts as a secondary skin for buildings to reduce draughts and maximize the effectiveness of bulk wall insulation. Sealing the sarking provides further protection to the building frame by preventing the wind from blowing in rain and dust.
It is suitable for use in bushfire areas with a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of 0 – 40, compliant with AS 3959-2009 standards
