Concealed Fix Sheeting – Saflok 410 surpasses expectations every time

The 1054, a creative hub in Walmer, Gqeberha, designed by DMV Architecture, uses Safintra’s Saflok 410 concealed fix profile.

Safintra’s Saflok 410 concealed fix profile continues to outperform the rest of the field thanks to its highly engineered clipping system and its aggressive geometrical design. These are both critical attributes in terms of roof hold down capability when faced with the most testing conditions.

Concealed fix roofing has maintained its position as the preferred roofing system for long span or low slope roofs due to its versatility, durability, and proven functionality. The concealed fix roofing profile has created a completely new design trend within the residential housing arena. It allows for the design of roofing systems which were never possible before when using the traditional pierced fixed profiles and tiles.

The key to Saflok 410’s unmatched performance is the interaction between the profile’s aggressive geometric design and the performance of the second-generation clip. The winning formula which this system provides has proven itself in the testing grounds of the Western Cape and Eastern Cape. The typically high wind loads in this area have allowed Safintra to build up a track record for the Saflok 410 profile as truly the best in its class.

Based on the unmatched performance of the Saflok 410 profile, Safintra is now offering mobile mills in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, all the while maintaining its presence in the Western Cape and Eastern Cape.

The Saflok 410 roofing system has recently been tested at the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) by Dr Adam Goliger, widely regarded as the leading engineer in the field of wind upliftment and as one of the pioneers of topographical wind environmental studies.

Saflok 410 excels in the following:
• Exceptional uplift performance and serviceability (ideally suited to push the boundaries of modern design criteria)
• Exceptional point load carrying ability (reduced damage due to foot traffic and the subsequent installation of rooftop items such as HVAC or solar panels which impose point loads)

Saflok 410 is a premium product within the concealed fix market and sits above the re-engineered Saflok 700 profile in the Saflok brand family. The latter product offers great value without compromising on performance or aesthetic appeal.
A roof typically comprises 20-30% of the cost of building a home, which highlights the importance of selecting the best roof in terms of longevity and performance.

Saflok 410 can be ordered in any practical length as per customer requirements. On-site rolling is recommended for lengths in excess of 13.2 meters, limited by space constraints and building design. This tried, tested and trusted product is now available in a wide range of colours and coatings to suit any environment on the African continent.
