Roof Grip Walkways at BMW

Roof Grip has started installation of their access walkways at BMW in Rosslyn. Working with Bartlett Construction we are providing safe and controlled access in the BMW expansion project.

Tuesday, 24 October 2017


In a effort to ensure the maximum life expectancy of the roof sheets our customer at Sandy's Centre in Pinetown requested the AHU and other plant be mounted on to off ROOF GRIP WALKWAY Platforms when the roof was re-sheeted recently.
The platforms allowed for easy installation and removal, if necessary, while providing a safe, controlled area around the units for maintenance. Fitting of cables and pipes was also simplified.
Standard 600mm ROOF GRIP ACCESS WALKWAYS were installed to ensure access to the units was also safe and controlled.

ROOF GRIP ACCESS WALKWAYS were proud to be a part of the Ballito Junction Mall development.

After successfully installing access walkways on the original mall back in 2005 we were again chosen to carry out the installation of Roof Access Walkways over the extension.

Our LIGHT WEIGHT walkway that requires NO MAINTENANCE are ideally suited to protecting and extending the life span of metal roofing installations.

The walkways provide a CONTROLLED and SAFE means to access the roof space for maintenance, cleaning and general inspections.

This is a cost-effective way to increase the LIFE SPAN of your installation!

Roof Grip Walkway System

Roof Grip installed on replacement roof in Cape Town

Alifab recently completed another successful installation of Roof Grip Access Walkways onto the newly refurbished roof at Pepkor in Parow, Cape Town.

After years of use the roof sheets needed to be replaced and as future accessing of the ventilation system mounted on the roof, had not helped to maintain the integrity of the sheeting it was decided to install Roof Grip onto the roof.

The ability of Roof Grip to control access over the roof sheeting to specific areas will ensure there is no damage to the sheeting by maintenance teams. The Ampligrip expanded aluminium floor grating incorporated into the Roof Grip product has a non-slip ridging that ensures the safety of the workmen.

The product is manufactured from aluminium extrusions that are rust free and not affected by UV, ensuring no maintenance is required on the walkway. Its light weight makes sure no excess dead load is imposed on the roof structure. ROOF GRIP IS IDEAL FOR ROOF ACCESS WALKWAYS!!

Roof Grip Access Walkways at Forrest Hill Mall, Centurion

Roof Grip at Forrest Hill Mall

Alifab recently installed their Roof Grip Access Walkway System onto the roof at the soon to be opened Forrest Hill Mall just outside Pretoria.

The project required access across the roof sheets to various plant and equipment mounted in the roof space. The ideal choice for this was Roof Grip.

Roof Grip is manufactured using Ampligrip Type 201 with specially designed bracket to allow easy fixing to the specific roof sheet. The all aluminium construction ensures no maintenance is required for the life of the product. The lightweight aluminium also ensures a reduced live load on the roof structure.

Roof Grip evenly distributes the foot print over a larger area thereby protecting the roof sheets for point load damage. By fitting the walkways in the most beneficial positions you can ensure access takes place where it can do the lease damage.

600mm walkway was used throughout as simple access to the plant was required. 900mm and 1200mm wide platforms are also available. All fixing brackets are non-piercing therefore do not reduce the integrity of the original installation.
