A whole new look with Newlok

St John’s Village Lifestyle Centre in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal, boasts a new roofing profile which makes a classically timeless visual statement for the commercial focal point of the new development.

 

Designed by the Umhlanga office of TC Design Architects, the classically steep roof pitches and dramatic shadow lines created by Safintra’s Newlok® standing seam profile make for an outstanding building impact. On the doorstep of the newly established St John’s Village Estate, in the heart of the beautiful Natal Midlands, the Lifestyle Centre is a premier shopping destination for the wider area which has more than 4,000 homeowners living in the established and upmarket environs of Amber Glen, Amberfield and other well-known retirement complexes.

 

The St John’s Centre roof was installed by experienced roofing contractors Browndek Roofing. Although standing seam roofing is traditionally installed over a sub-deck, in this instance Browndek used Lamdaboard rigid insulation to serve as both an effective insulator for this chilly climate and as a support to the wide pan of the roofing sheet. Newlok® Standing Seam was introduced by Safintra in late 2016. The traditionally colonial appearance of this standing seam roofing is created by its wide pans and narrow ribs which create a crisp and distinctive linear aesthetic.

 

The profile can be snapped together on its side laps, or snapped and then seamed. Seaming increases the wind resistance to 3Kpa which is unusually high in concealed fixed sheeting systems, making it the ideal choice for wind-prone climates and locations. Newlok is suitable for both roofing and side cladding applications and for commercial or residential applications. Used as side cladding with the pan facing outwards (broad-flute out) it has a distinctive lateral pinstripe appearance for high architectural impact.
