SAFAL ENGINEERING CHANGES THE WAY WE BUILD FOR TOMORROW.
Modern building practices substantially outperform traditional construction methods.
Steel not only reduces the demand for wood, but also will not rot, burn or suffer infestation from termites.
Steel has a strength to weight ratio that outperforms almost all other materials.
Time-related savings from steel construction can total 3-5% of the total project value.
But the greatest inherent benefit of steel is that it is a material which can be innovatively engineered to retain its structural integrity even as we utilise less material to do so.
Specialist business units take this know-how to market, working with their clients from early design stage to deliver “best for project” solutions that change the way we build for a more sustainable tomorrow.
Pre-engineered products are designed to be easy and quick to erect, cost effective and durable. They are assembled and delivered as a complete package to site, to be used in a variety of innovative ways in standard or bespoke designs, for applications ranging from sheds and large warehouses to residential gazebo’s and guard huts.
Specialist solutions include light weight steel trusses, purlins, and steel framed buildings. Dedicated production units also make pipes, tubes and hollow sections used in construction and infrastructural projects as well as in products such as furniture and fencing.
Roofing and Cladding
Safal Group roofing and cladding products provide our customers with the best quality products that they can afford, and the aesthetics that enhance every building with individuality, style and lasting value.
All roll formed sheeting profiles are sold with the related flashings and accessories that will ensure a long lasting and weatherproof building.
Accessories sold by the Safal Group include fasteners, insulation, below- and above-roof components. If supplied by a Safal Group company, they carry the Safal Group quality assurance of being fit for purpose. All accessories are System components are therefore minimises expensive mid-life repairs, and reduces maintenance costs over the life of the building.
Sheeting for Roofing and Cladding
Profiles produced in a roll forming facility.
Sheets are pre-cut into lengths practical for transportation and cannot exceed 13 m. These include
Corrugated (sinusoidal) profiles (standard and mini corrugations)
Trapezoidal (square fluted) profiles (a wide variety is available)
Tile shaped profiles (where a “step” in the profile creates the visual impression of a tile, but it is available in a continuous sheet for quick and safe installation)
These profiles are fixed to the roof with fasteners, therefore referred to as “pierced-fix” profiles. Modern fasteners, such as those sold by Safal Group companies, are of such a quality that they will remain watertight over the hole in the sheet for many years.
Profiles rolled on mobile mills on the building site:
Coils can be roll formed on site, and guided directly onto the roof so they can be produced in lengths up to 120m.
These are our concealed fix profiles, meaning that they are fixed to the building using clips which secure the sheet from beneath.
Using a clip means the sheet is perforation-free, so there are no holes, so concealed fix profiles can be used on almost flat roof slopes without leaking.
Pierced-fix steel sheets
(fastened by means of a fastener which perforates the sheet):
Trough Profiles: EGA/Indistrial 7/ EGA
Dumuzas, Resincot, Dumurangi, Lion, Simba, and others
(fastened by means of a clip beneath the sheet, meaning the sheet is not perforated):
Romantile / Elegantile
Zentile / Orientile
Lifestile (stone coated steel tiles in strip form)
