Church Building

Alifab has been awarded the contract to build a church hall for the community of Tembsa on the east rand. The rapid roofing structure is ideal for use as a hall for worship. The architect has designed the 24m wide x 50m long free span building in a manner that best suits the needs of this community.

These structures are ideal of erecting where no lifting equipment can be used as none is required for erecting these structures, up to 35m free span width.

Amplibeam structures

The development of the Amplibeam Type 475 has allowed for the extended use of aluminium in structural applications. The Radius arch Structure can now expand to a staggering 45m wide! This combined with infinite length allows for a massive free span structure. All this built without heavy lifting equipment. Now that is news.





This innovative use of aluminium extrusions extends the boundaries of structural engineering.


  • High Strength Aluminium Alloys: Aluminium alloys allow for high structural properties.
  • Light Weight: Aluminium reduces the load imposed by the structure.
  • Corrosion Resistant: Aluminium resists a wide range of corrosive elements.
  • Wide Spans: Free Spans up to 45m
  • Various Sheeting Solutions: Sheeting to suit various requirements.

Typical Applications

  • Structures may be either Semi-Permanent or Permanent
  • Pool Enclosures
  • Aircraft Hangars
  • Reservoir Covers
  • Bulk Storage
  • Workshops
