Apex Steel - a privately owned Australian innovative national organisation that is growing at an unprecedented rate. The Apex Group is a union between some of Australia’s major steel companies that is offering more than the traditional rollformer. They are also steel merchants with structural steel, merchant bar, RHS, SHS, Sheds, Garages and general sheet & coil etc.
While doing the report on Australian rollformers - APEX Group kept on emerging as a big player especially in NSW and QLD. Not only affecting the Top 5's results in these two states, but also very close in SA and VIC! Queensland seems to be the big growth area for Apex - stealing some BIG clients (roofing contractors and shed companies) off some established rollformers! And staff also!

Steeline (a large group of independent rollformers) are also making inroads in the difficult times. Results soon on the Australian Rollformer end of year performance!
Only one other profile that comes close to the Soladek is MaxLine 340 from Revolution Roofing - although not quite wide enough for the 380mm laminate PV solar strips - there are narrower versions of solar laminates available - and MaxLine 340 spans are greater and do not require structural ply underlay - so a balance has to be made economically!

|New Solar Technology from BlueScope!!! You've got to joking!|
The BIPVT retrofit system involves refurbishment of an existing roof by adding a new roof deck above the existing surface.A BIG WORRY if this is how the grants are being spent! Mr. Martin Ferguson - do you know what you are actually looking at in this photo below - and then you grant them $2.3 million to carry on to develop the BIPV system: YOU HAVE to be joking!
The new roof deck incorporates solar cells, and air then flows in the duct created under the new roof surface.
This air flow will not only help cool the solar cells during warm weather, improving generation efficiency, but it will also help to heat and cool the building! (WHAT A BUNCH OF GARBAGE - The Roofer)
This is laminate PV film stuck to corrugated colorbond roofing - thank you for the money, Martin!
