An additional huge advantage of Zincal® or Colorplus® is its lightweight nature when compared with typical galvanised steel. This lends itself to modern sustainable construction methods, promoting dematerialisation, lower transport costs, longer life in service and reducing the footprint of the building on the earth.
Safal Steel is a licenced user of the highly respected 55% Aluminium, 43.5% Zinc and 1.5% Silicon coated steel technology from BIEC International Inc. The company is the first and only licensed producer of this patented coating alloy in Southern Africa, which is used to manufacture the highest quality metallic and pre-painted coated steel used in roofing, cladding, and many other structural applications. Zincal® is made with a range of coating thicknesses, AZ100, AZ150 and AZ200 which are suited to differing degrees of corrosion environments, providing the durability that will deliver an investment with a warranted lifespan.
Safal Steel warrants its Zincal® and Colorplus® (colour coated steel) to have a service life (prior to perforation by weathering in the natural elements) from date of installation. Warranty periods are determined by Safal Steel and may vary according to project design and location. A Provisional Warranty may be applied for at project design stage; this warranty serves as a guideline as to the final warranty Safal Steel may issue on project completion. A Final Warranty application form may be submitted to Safal Steel by the roll former on project completion, requesting Safal Steel to issue a warranty for the specific material used on a specific project.
