At the heart of the performance of every concealed fix system is the design of the clip holding down the sheet. The closer the sheet / clip interface, and the stronger the clip holding it onto the substructure, the stronger the entire system.
The Saflok system has performed outstandingly on millions of square meters of roofing in Southern Africa, and Safintra South Africa has re-engineered its Saflok clips to raise the bar even higher for years to come.
Globally, weather patterns have become more violent and South Africa is no exception. With this in Safintra South Africa has invested considerable resources in the engineering, design and manufacturing of better performing clips for its premier Saflok system, in both the 700mm and 410mm variants. Both clips have been tested to have the highest wind performance of any clip on the African market.
Saflok 700: New clip 35
Last year, Safintra launched the re-engineered Saflok 700 clip 35, ideal for industrial use (compared to its sister, Saflok Clip 20 which is ideal for residential use).
It featured “wings” on the anchor for much tighter hold down in high winds, and a strengthened base for less distortion in high impact industrial installations.
Saflok 410: New clip
The most common failure point for a roof clip is the ‘Goose Neck’ and the new Saflok 410 clip has deeper embossing up over the goose neck,giving it more rigidity and greater hold-down capabilities in wind. A tail has also been added to give an additional fastening point onto the purlin.
