ROOF TILE CLIPPING SYSTEMS
NEW HOME BUILDINGS SHOULD DEMAND HIGHER ROOF SECURITY.

Roof Fixing Supplies has the leading edge when it comes to roof tile security.  All our roof tile fixing products are designed to conform to the Australian Standards AS 2050 – 1989 3.5 and provide real security. Our clipping range manufactured from BHP galvanized spring steel wire have been extensively used by all Australian manufacturers of roofing tiles, and tested by the CSIRO Division of Building, construction and Engineering to verify performance standards. Test results are available, on request.

While there are stringent regulations covering homes and roofs in cyclone areas, it seems that the lesser “standard” are tolerated in the other regions.

The very small cost of including security to the new roof against storm and tempest needs only to be recognised at the time of installing, and the benefits to all – including the insurance company are high.
