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.




Bulk storage applications



Radius Arch Roofing Structure are ideal for bulk material storage facilities with their high middle arch. Structures start at 18m wide up to 45m wide. All structures are free span giving unobstructed access throughout the covered area. The ends may be left open for easy access or they may be closed to keep the weather out.


The sheeting cover may be solid aluminium or zinc alume or a flexable PVC. The aluminium structure allows for a wide variety of materials to be stored, including many chemically aggressive products.
