Cable Corporation of India Ltd, Nashik chooses Saflok 700 Metal Roofing


Cable Corporation of India (CCI) is a leading manufacturer of a wide range of power and control cables having a history dating back to 1957. When CCI wanted to set up its new plant in Nashik, they decided to go with roofing sheet provided by Safintra Roofing to give a long lasting maintenance free roofing solution with excellent insulation capability.

Safintra Roofing used Saflok700, an angular interlocking trapezoidal rib profile in Bare Galvalume with 0.47 mm thickness for the outer skin. Trimflute, a square fluted roofing sheet made from Pre Painted Galvalume Iron of Dove white colour with 0.50mm thickness was used as the cladding for covering the entire wall of this project. To compliment the aesthetic features of the plant, plain accessories of Firebrick color were also used in this project.

Saflok 700 uses a special interlocking clip with overlock for its Installation. The Saflok clips have been developed internationally over a period of 20 years, following substantial Research and Development and are imported into India under license. The Saflok clip allows the Roofing material to expand and contract with both strength and agility. It also allows a positive Interlocking on all the flutes for easy alignment of material and to ensure a very secure fix onto the roof. The bends on the clips allow flexibility to the sheet while still providing it sheer strength. It has been designed to withstand high wind conditions and ensure a very secure fixing of the roofing sheets. The patented design has been used worldwide and is now available in India only from Safintra Roofing India Ltd.

The Saflok 700 sheets used were Roll formed onsite thus eliminating the need of any end laps and considerably increasing the speed of the construction. The Trimflute sheets used were roll formed in the Safintra Factory and transported to the construction site. A total of 6446 sq meter of Saflok 700 sheet and 2483 sq meter of Trimflute sheet were manufactured and used in this project. The maximum length of Saflok 700 sheet manufactured was 19 meters to eliminate the risk of leakage.
