Jeff Thomson Blue Orb
John Lysaght (Australia) ltd was one of the early suppliers of galvanised roofing sheet for the New Zealand building industry. Blue orb, Red orb and leopard were the Lysaght brand names that defined the various types of corrugated iron they produced. Red orb ( not for curving), Blue orb (curving grade) and leopard, the more thinly galvanised standard sheets. Blue orb was particularly suitable for applications requiring curving such as water tanks and bull nose verandahs. This exhibition is made entirely using blue orb and on the my roll former curving machines.
