A new range of international clay roofing tiles is now available through Marley Building Systems.
With a comprehensive collection of innovative, sustainable and complete building solutions, Marley Building Systems – a subsidiary of Belgian industrial group, Etex – is redefining building methodologies.
Etex specialises in the manufacturing and marketing of building materials across four business units:
• Cladding and building boards in fibre cement and plaster.
• Roofing materials.
• Passive fire protection and high-performance insulation.
• Ceramic wall and floor tiles.
New clay roofing tiles
One of Marley Buiding Systems’ branches, Marley Roofing, offers a comprehensive product portfolio that includes all types of concrete and clay tiles as well as more modern fibre cement slates.
Working with some of South Africa’s leading roofing companies in providing this vast range of roofing products, Marley Building Systems is confident that Marley Roofing will continue as a stronghold in the marketplace through its delivery of precision-engineered products that meet environmental standards (SABS ISO14001), and surpass quality and performance standards for applications ranging from educational, hospitality and healthcare, to commercial and residential.
Marley Roofing’s new range of international clay roofing tiles, which is now available through Marley Building Systems, is a prime example of the competitive edge that has been added to the company’s offering.
“The range is different and revolutionary and our most demanding customers have already taken a liking to it,” says Isaac Simelane, architectural and specification manager at Marley Building Systems.
“The high quality of the tiles is obtained with an advanced technological process that is soluble salts resistant (perfect for coastal areas), ice resistant, watertight and impermeable with a low porosity of less than 3%.”
Expanding with quality brands
Subsequent to the acquisition of the Lafarge Gypsum business in November last year, Marley Building Systems can now deliver its complementary collection of brands to the market from one supplier. The brands that make up its assembly include:
• Marley Roofing: For roofing products.
• Kalsi: For fibre cement products.
• Siniat: For plasterboard.
• Equitone: For facades.
According to Sese Matlapeng, marketing manager at Marley Building Systems South Africa, the move to acquire this additional business has been welcomed by architects and building contractors, among other industry players, since it strengthens Marley Building Systems’ position as a one-stop shop for superior roofing, cladding and dry construction solutions.
Moving into Africa
At the recent African Construction and Totally Concrete Exhibition at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Mark Irving, managing director of Marley Building Systems in South Africa, said the company is working hard to entrench its presence in South Africa and cross-border into the rest of Africa.
“We want our products to tell a story,” he said. “A story that reflects the creative, technically-sound and performance-driven commitment of Marley Building Systems to sustainable building solutions in Africa.”
