Clotan Steel (Pty) Limited is a privately owned manufacturer of roof sheeting, cold formed sections and slit strip that has been in operation from modern premises in Vanderbijlpark since 1984. Throughout the companys history there has been a commitment to cost competitiveness, on time supply of high quality products to major role players in the building, construction and steel industries. The company manufactures a complete range of roof sheets that includes Craft-Lock concealed fix roofing. Supporting products and services such as bullnosing and curving of roof sheets, all types of flashings and other roofing accessories is also offered. Full technical support such as assistance with the design of the roof, and quantities and measurements taken from building and construction plans are available. In addition to roof sheeting, Clotan Steel operates state of the art slitting and roll forming equipment to manufacture slip strip and cold formed lipped channel and lipped angle to customers exact requirements. Clotan Steel also specialise in the supply of high quality steel roofs to mass housing projects. These “roof kits” are supported by technical services, which includes estimating, design and the initial training of emerging contractors where applicable. All Clotan Steels products are covered by an after sales service policy, which is fully supported by our world-class suppliers.
A Craft-Lock roof sheet profile is characterised by its hidden fasteners. The use of a starter bar and fixing cleats allows positive fixing of the roof. This eliminates potential leakage problems and enhances aesthetics.
Widespan is a roofing and cladding profile designed to provide an economic alternative to deeper Box Rib profiles without losing the aesthetic appeal of a square fluted profile. The trapezoidal Widespan profile offers greater spans and lower roof slopes than Corrugated sheeting, but provides the same covering width. Widespan can be factory cranked, curved and bullnosed to various radii depending on customers’ requirements.
IBR roof sheeting is a square fluted profile with an effective covering width of 686 mm, designed for use as side cladding or roofing material in commercial, industrial and residential buildings.
Clotan Steel Lightweight Steel for trusses, walls, panels and floors. Trusses and framing are considered to be critical to ensuring the security, value and service life of a building. Light gauge steel is fast becoming the preferred alternative to the traditional building materials such as bricks, mortar and timber in the construction industry, not only because of its superior properties but also because it is more affordable.
Clotan Steel invested in state-of-the-art slitting and roll forming facilities in order to manufacture a full range of cold-formed lipped channels and lipped angles. By investing in modern equipment, Clotan Steel is able to provide the following benefits to the construction industry: • quick setup facilities on our equipment facilitate short lead times and a flexible service; • orders can be precision cut to length at high speed in order to eliminate length variances; • cutting the material to length before the profile is formed eliminates unwanted burrs on the ends of the sections; • a unique “camber corrector” guarantees tight dimensional tolerances, thus eliminating twist, camber and straightness problems.
Slitting This is the process where you cut a coil into smaller strips. Clotan Steel has modern and versatile driven slitters – loop slitting with tension devices to minimise the stresses in the magnetic properties of the steel. We use high-quality shimless tooling for accurate and rapid setups. The information below is a guideline for the operational parameters of our slitters. Packaging Clotan Steel offers various options for packaging. Discuss your individual needs with our Sales Consultant.
