Are you planning a new construction or would you like to renovate your roof or façade? You can rely on aluminium. The reasons are obvious:
BREAK-PROOF; LIGHTWEIGHT & AFFORDABLE
An aluminium roof does not break and weighs about 1/10 to 1/20 of a tiled roof. With a dead weight of just 2.3 to 2.6 kg/m², an aluminium roof covering is particularly lightweight — and can be mounted on virtually any roof pitch (exceeding 3°). The advantage: in most cases, older roof structures do not require extra reinforcement. That often saves a good deal of money. Therefore, aluminium is ideal for renovations!GO TO THE RENOVATION GALLERY
MADE TO LAST A LIFE TIME
Aluminium reacts with oxygen in the air to form a natural oxide layer. This layer offers outstanding protection from corrosion (including bitumen corrosion) and is therefore rust-proof.
If the roof or façade membrane made from aluminium does happen to suffer any damage, it will always regenerate itself. The aluminium supports are also protected by a coil coating. So you can enjoy your roof for years — and the next generation can too.
Thanks to the concealed fasteners and installation in a half-offset pattern, a PREFA roof can resist even the harshest of weather. In high-risk regions, storm-proofing can be further improved with additional clips. With PREFA, you get all the accessories from one source as a complete system — you can rely on PREFA’s original accessories.
Our PREFA roof is reliable on mountain huts too. On boiling hot days and freezing cold nights, it’s not uncommon for maximum and minimum daily temperatures to differ by 50 °C. That’s not a problem for a PREFA roof!
From an ecological point of view, aluminium is the ideal choice of material both for new builds and for renovations. There are various reasons for this:
! Aluminium is fully recyclable.
! During recycling, only 5% of the original energy used for production is required.
! PREFA generally uses secondary aluminium(= recycled aluminium).
! As aluminium is so lightweight, energy is saved and CO2 emissions are reduced during transport to the building site.
We say it again: aluminium is extremely durable and break-proof, virtually maintenance-free, recyclable without any loss, unbelievably lightweight, and at the same time particularly attractive. All factors considered, the eco-balance is far better than is the case with traditional roofs.
UNIQUE VARIETY OF COLOURS AND SHAPES
The amazing design possibilities offered by aluminium are truly mind-boggling. This is due not least to our fantastic range of colours which includes over 25 different shades. Aluminium is also full of possibilities in terms of design and shaping. The diverse product range enables virtually all architectural aspirations to be fulfilled, and unique roofing and façade effects to be conjured up.
So you see, with PREFA, every building is unique. There are no limits to your imagination or creativity.
Aluminium lasts an eternity — In addition to aluminium’s powerful properties, the concealed fastening technology in a half-offset pattern also offers strong support.
