A brief bulletin on the dirt retention of Global Roofing's Klip-Lok and Klip-Tite concealed fixed profile roof sheets
Introduced in 1997, Klip-Lok 700™ is a Concealed Fix profile offering a wider cover width than Klip-Lok 406™, providing quicker installation. It’s manufactured in continuous lengths with on-site rolling for sheet lengths in excess of transportable limits. With the advancement in technology and the improving of products constantly happening, Klip-Tite™ has moved to replace Klip-Lok 700™. Klip-Lok 700™ will still be available for remedial work.

When the landscape demands a rapport with the building, the architecture needs to be approached accordingly. How so? Through design that accords and defines cladding possibilities. Consider the new Head Office for Statistics SA. If you haven’t seen this stunning building envelope yet, it’s derived from the Chromadek® coils manufactured by ArcelorMittal South Africa, who then supply a number of roofing and cladding profilers that then convert Chromadek® coils into bespoke roofing and cladding systems. Chromadek® cladding represents an envelope or an opportunity to represent a space.
Global Roofing Solutions is re-positioning itself to become the major manufacturer of concealed and pierced fix roof sheeting in South Africa, as well as the African continent. In order to facilitate this move the executive team took a decision to amalgamate the two major well known brands, Brownbuilt and HH Robertson, and place them under one roof. The business is now situated in Boksburg, under 30 000m2.
