Good looks meet

With a contemporary design, Safintra’s Trimflute® metal roofing profile is both visually appealing and cost-effective.


A visually stunning and cost-effective metal roofing profile, Trimflute® is unique to Safintra South Africa and is now available in the Gauteng market. It has a subtle square fluted profile with a contemporary visual appeal, ideal for both roofing and cladding applications.

The Trimflute® roofing profile is especially cost-effective when used as side cladding on large industrial projects which have Saflok concealed fix or similar profiles on the roofing.

With a wider pan than any other square-ribbed equivalent, it delivers almost 10% cost advantages over both IBR roof sheeting and wider pan profiles such as Widedek.

Its wide pan has excellent water handling performance and the extra wide sheet, which provides over 1m effective cover after lapping, makes it highly cost-effective for budget-sensitive projects.

An ideal roofing solution for industrial, commercial and institutional buildings, this profile can be rolled in any coated steel or in aluminium.

The striking Govan Mbeki Sports Centre in Port Elizabeth, designed by Adendorff Architects & Interiors, features Safintra’s Trimflute® profile extensively for both roofing and side cladding. Apart from adding to the aesthetics of the development, the product was selected due to it being an economic choice.

Sally Stromnes, marketing manager for the Safintra Group, says: “South African architecture is right up there with the best the world has to offer, not only in its design, but also for its innovative use of steel for its functional benefits.

“Our built environment professionals and end-users have caught up with the environmental upside of using steel – its excellent thermal properties, its strength to weight benefits, and the fact that it is cost-effective, durable and completely recyclable. Add the good looks of a really elegant profile that is visually distinctive and metal sheeting demonstrates real value in both design and function.”
