A lightweight roof designed to stay secure in a hurricane or an earthquake

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.
