Flat Products and Roofing
Alberton Steel and Pipe branches stock a wide range of flat products. These products are generally sold to truck, body and trailer manufacturers, merchants, expanded metal fabricators and racking and shelving manufacturers, to name a few.
Alberton Steel and Pipe stocks a full range of base plates and can order base plates cut to size to suit any application. Our standard base plates are available in thicknesses of 1,6-16,0 mm. We also stock 6 m long flat bar in widths of 12-100 mm and thicknesses of 3 mm, 2,7 mm, 2,5 mm and 2 mm. We can order non-standard sizes up to and including 4,5 mm in thickness for applications such as trellis doors, burglar proofing, grating, and engineering applications.
We also stock a wide range of roofing products which are readily available in all our branches and consist of corrugated, Widespan, and IBR steel roofing profiles with thicknesses ranging from 0,25-0,58 mm. These products are supplied to roofing contractors, merchants, low-cost housing developments and the DIY markets.
All steel roofing solutions are available in a galvanised finish or various Chromadek® colours. Chromadek® cut-to-length facilities can accommodate 0,5-6,0 mm thicknesses and 925-1500 mm widths. We offer cranking and bullnosing services for IBR and Widespan to ensure profiles are manufactured to your specifications.
Corrugated steel roof sheeting is a strong and affordable solution to residential, industrial and commercial roofing requirements, and offers the benefits of being simultaneously more durable and more recyclable than any other roof sheeting on the market. The industry favours three common profiles: corrugated iron, IBR and Widespan.
Contrary to its name, corrugated iron is a steel roofing sheet, and has a classic S-rib profile. Inverted Box Rib (IBR) has a square fluted profile, and is currently the most popular corrugated roofing sheet, given its high strength-to-weight ratio, optimal loadspan consistency and effective drainage. Widespan’s profile is similar to that of IBR, but has broader and shallower flutes to maximise coverage and reduce construction cost.
