The ASTERIX roof is a lightweight, modular temporary roofing system, utilising multi-purpose aluminium beams. There are two variants to the ASTERIX beam – ASTERIX, which is 75cm deep and can be joined to other 75cm deep beams on the market and ASTERIX HD 133cm deep, the strongest scaffold fitting friendly beam available. Virtually all projects involving the use of banks of 4 or more beams will be more cost effective on a first use by using ASTERIX HD beams.

DESSA roofing systems utilise a high capacity aluminium structure and PVC sheeting depths, offering unrivalled span versus cost solution for your temporary roofing requirements.
