When Government Hospital in Goa, was looking for roofing solutions for its new building, they chose Safintra’s for its long lasting maintenance-free roofing solution with excellent insulation capability.Safintra Roofing used Saflok 700, an angular interlocking trapezoidal rib profile in PPGL with 0.50mm thickness of terracotta colour for the outer skin. Trimflute, a square fluted roofing sheet made from Bare Galvalume Iron with 0.47mm thickness, was used as the liner for covering the inner skin of this project.The unique Double Skin system was used in this project. It provided many benefits for roofing the hospital. First, to enhance the thermal efficiency of the roof, an insulation panel was installed in between the liner and the Saflok 700 sheet which was used as the top layer. The aesthetics of the building were enhanced by the use of the clip lock roofing system which allowed for a perforation-free roof with a low gradient slope. Finally, the absence of perforations meant that the roofing solution provided would ensure a long maintenance-free life for the roofing sheets.

Saflok 700 uses a special interlocking clip with over-lock 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 and Trimflute sheets used were roll formed at Safintra factory and transported to the site. A total of 810 sq. metres of Saflok 700 sheet and 809 sq. metres of Trimflute sheets were manufactured and used in this project. The maximum length of Saflok 700 sheet manufactured was 8 metres to eliminate the risk of leakage. Saflok clip of 811 number were also supplied along with bare accessories for this project.
