Steeline Garage Panel
Steeline GP Panel is a conventional light weight sheet walling profile with a lower rib that gives a unobtrusive appearance in any application you choose to use it on.
Steeline GP Panel is the ideal product to use on the walls of your garage , garden shed or workshop.
With a little bit of imagination it can also be used to make a feature of any wall or area that you want to look a little different.

The sheets of Steeline GP Panel overlap each other and are fixed progressively along the building in the opposite direction to the prevailing weather.
