World Class Coated Steel - Steel is the ultimate design material


Steel is the ultimate design material – light yet very strong, highly versatile, thermally efficient, fire resistant and yes, its green!

Safintra recommends only world class materials for a service life appropriate to the life of the building. Aluminium-Zinc (AZ) coated steel is produced by Safal Steel using the world’s leading metal coating technology.

Zincal® is a classic unpainted AZ coated steel, and Colorplus® is factory pre-painted onto a Zincal substrate. When used in the correct application, you can be sure of:

  • Considerable increase in service life (due to 4 times greater corrosion resistance*)
  • Superior thermal performance
  • Lasting aesthetic value
  • The full technical backup of a globally recognised product produced in South Africa, and locally supported.**

* Global research has established that the performance of aluminium-zinc coated steel extends the service life of the steel core to 4 times longer than that of an equivalent Zinc galvanised sheet of the same coating thickness and used in the same application.

** Material Warranties are available from Safal Steel on request subject to certain terms and conditions. 

Ask Safintra for further details.




The technique of coating steel with an alloy of Aluminium and Zinc (55% Aluminium, 43.5% Zinc and 1.5% Silicon) has been extensively researched and the proven performance surpasses that of traditional galvanised steel.
