Junk Shop is a Pongola, Zululand wholesaler whose project consisted of two phases totalling just over 2,500m². The steel roof to be built for phase 1 had a structural size of 38,150 x 44,500 x 5,000 whereas the second was to have a structural size of 38,150 x 22,500 x 5,000.
The roof sheeting choice was 0.58 IBR Chromadek in Fish Eagle White which is durable against natural elements and has been specifically developed for the harsh African sun (UV environment). It has Improved edge protection and is less prone to formability cracking that could lead to corrosion problems. The 12-degree pitch in the roof allows for a steady fall of rainwater that is harvested and collected in storage tanks as a free water supply.
The ceilings were insulated with a 40mm Isoboard that has a pine finish. Isoboard retards heat flow into the space during summer, and contains generated heat in winter, providing a comfortable interior environment 365 days a year.
