The great feature about Kāhu™ is the double capillary overlap to the side lap which allows for greater performance:

  • Greater weather performance is achieved with the double capillary overlap as it provides an extra capillary barrier to the standard capillary groove, giving you extra peace of mind.
  • The double capillary overlap requires only a one rib lap. This increases the cover sheet size and speeds up installation time, providing for a cost effective roofing and cladding solution.
  • For wall cladding applications the exposed capillary groove on the overlap can be omitted providing for a smoother appearance.
