Who We Are
HISTORY OF ROOF GRIP
Roof Grip is a product branded by Alifab who is the fabrication division of Ampliform cc.
Ampliform was started in 1984 as a manufacturer of expanded aluminium FLOORING (Ampligrip), MESH (Amplimesh) and BEAMS (Amplibeams).
The manufacturing process requires the slotting of an aluminium extrusion and the subsequent stretching of that extrusion to the required width.
These 3 products are available as general stock items for purchase by any number of fabricators throughout the region.
Each of these stock items has its own fabricated product. Roof Grip uses Ampligrip EXPANDED ALUMINIUM FLOORING as the base for its design.
Roof Grip was first used as a product at Gateway Theatre of Shopping in 2001 and it has steadily developed into a leader in roof access safety. Today Roof Grip is specified for a wide variety of installations throughout Africa.
Roof Grip is manufactured in Pietermaritzburg from South African produced extrusions. Our facility in Pietermaritzburg enjoys some of the most modern fabrication equipment. From Pietermaritzburg, our partners and us install throughout Africa, providing safe and controlled access to the roof space.
Ampliform is a proud member of the Pietermaritzburg community and as members of the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Business we uphold fair business principles.
We also participate in the Master Builders Association and the Aluminium Federation of South Africa.
