The fact that GERARD’s roofing system is designed to withstand just about anything is reassuring. GERARD’s pressed steel roofing system has been proven to withstand over 200 km/h hurricanes. Other roofing systems require specialized fastenings and/or materials for high wind zones.
People living in earthquake-prone areas often choose to have a GERARD pressed steel roof over their heads rather than an equivalent concrete tile roof of around 10 times the weight. Lightweight and strong, our roofs were well-tested in many earthquakes in New Zealand, home of GERARD roofs.
