These sessions were used to explain technical aspects around the correct method of laying sheets, calculating purlin spacing, and other practical installation practices. Participants raised questions on the challenges they encountered in the field, and solutions were discussed in detail.
Safintra Rwanda, which specialises in high-quality roofing materials, has embarked on a series of educational meetings with construction engineers and Fundis (roofers) around the country to explain the advantages of using the company’s superior materials.The first meeting was held on 17th May, 2017 in Musanze district, where 59 engineers and Fundis attended, and the second one on 18th May in Rubavu where 65 were present.
Safintra highlighted the advantages and cost savings in using their custom length metallic gutters which the company has introduced in Rwanda. The participants were also made aware of the quality parameters in roofing products so that they stop using inferior products sold in the market and provide the best quality material to the home owners.
