Australian Made for the New Millenium

Ampelite sheeting is made to stand up to tough Australian conditions from Cairns to Cradle Mountain.  When you choose Ampelite glass reinforced sheeting you can be sure that it has been made from the highest quality materials available using the world's latest resin technology.  Ampelite's manufacturing process ensures that each phase of production is absolutely consistent from batch to batch.
