SRF Flexipack’s slogan is “we always find a way” and they did, with Span Africa steel for the mono-pitch extension to their existing building.
A lattice truss design, supported by central columns, was chosen as it provides increased structural stability due to its dispersion of forces. The dimensions of the structure commissioned was 39 x 44 x 12.550 down to 8.346, with a roof pitch slope of 5 degrees to prevent pooling of water. Saflok Sheeting 700 in the colour “Seaspray” was used because the sheet is clipped in place, not punctured with fasteners; ensuring the roof is completely watertight even at a very low slope.
Ampa Sheets on the sides allow natural light to flood the space, is, is relatively easy to use and has a good fire rating.
