Safintra has 30 operations in eleven countries to supply coated steel to these development hotspots in Africa.


As the African construction industry ramps up, professionals from South Africa, Europe and North Africa are actively expanding to the new centres of activity.

The development hotspots include Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Mozambique in particular. In these countries, Safintra is already able to locally support contractors and investors with their metal sheeting and roofing systems components.

Safintra is the roofing arm of the Safal Group, the largest steel roofing company in Africa and the continent’s sole manufacturer of aluminium-zinc coated steel, assuring local supply of globally respected coated steel for roll forming. These are sold under the brand names Zincal (metallic-finish coated steel) and Colorplus (colour-coated Zincal).

Safintra has been a trusted name in roofing in South Africa for over 21 years, and the company supports customers in the SADC and East African regions through 30 roll-forming operations in eleven countries.

The company offers innovative specialist products for complete roofing systems in which all components are warranted for service life and therefore investment value.

The system components include proprietorial Fixtite fasteners for metal or wood substructures, S-5 clamps for all above-roof installations and insulation materials of various types for different climatic conditions. The complete roofing system is warranted for thermal and functional performance.

The Safintra roofing system is designed to provide peace of mind that all component parts work in tandem, with concurrent service life warranties, giving assurance of excellent performance for decades.
