SAF 686 "IBR" Type

SAF 686 "IBR" is an angular trapezoidal fluted profile sheet. Its bold appearance makes it both attractive and practical. Since IBR was introduced to the South African market in 1958, it has become the most popular sheeting used in the construction of commercial and industrial buildings. IBR is an abbreviation for Inverted Box Rib. The number "686" signifies the sheets' effective cover width. The general shape and appearance of the trapezoidal flutes ensure that SAF 686 "IBR" is totally acceptable for use as roof and wall cladding. The deep and broad flutes of the SAF 686 "IBR" Type sheeting ensures excellent drainage characteristics, another characteristic that makes it an ideal sheet for roofing applications. SAF 686 "IBR" offers optimum strength to weight and is designed to provide the most advantageous load/span characteristics consistent with economy. SAF 686 "IBR" offer the end user the option of having strengthening ribs in the sheet which help to remove oil canning from the broad flute. SAF 686 "IBR" can be factory cranked, curved and bullnosed to a wide range of radii (see Bullnosing). For further details contact our Technical Department.
