Roof Source supplies all Roof Sheeting materials in the widest range of profiles, a variety of thicknesses, finishes and colours.
It is important to establish the ideal profile, colour and finish as early as possible in the process. The choice of profile is impacted by the slope of the roof. The fasteners must be as durable as the sheeting selected and match the life expectancy of the roofing and cladding material.
Note: The descriptions “Chromadek” and “Colorplus” only indicate that your roof is coloured (pre-painted). In this case, we will require more detail to be able to provide a more precise roof quote. The profile is very important as this will determine the overall cost of the roof. Colour is also important at the ordering stage as it can help speed up the overall process.
The right choice of Roof Sheeting, based on roof design and budget, is key to a lasting result and client satisfaction. Roof Source has extensive experience in metal sheeting for the roofing industry and has all the expertise to ensure the right sheeting is selected for each project, ensuring extended life expectancy and value for money for clients.
Roof Source makes use of AS3566 Class 3 screws as a minimum requirement. AS3566 is a performance based standard that specifies a minimum coating thickness for fasteners to be used in interior (Class 1) to severe marine (Class 4) environments.
Roof Sheeting Profiles supplied by Roof Source include:
The Corrugated profile is sinusoidal and can be used as roofing and cladding material. With its origins dating back to the Victorian era, it is probably the most commonly known sheeting profile used in the world today. The fact that the corrugated profiled sheeting has been around since before the turn of the century proves that this easy to use and effective profile for roofing and wall cladding is here to stay.
IBR is an abbreviation for Inverted Box Rib, an angular trapezoidal fluted profile sheet with a bold appearance which makes it both attractive and practical. Since IBR was introduced to the South African market in 1958, it has become the most popular sheeting used in construction of commercial and industrial buildings.
Concealed-fix roofing, also referred to as secret fix, is designed for very low pitched roofs. Because clips under the sheet hold it down, the sheet is not punctured with fasteners, and remains completely watertight even at a very low slope. The securing clips are pre-fixed into the purlins and the sheet is mechanically snapped onto the clip.
As a concealed fix sheet can also expand and contract over the clips as the temperate changes, this system is ideal for long spans on industrial, commercial and retail buildings.
