Systems can be manufactured both off site and onsite, through the use of mobile rollforming units, to achieve concave and convex curves.

For a light-weight over roof conversion, Ashjack is one of the most reliable and innovative ways to replace a flat roof configuration. The system uses a lightweight steel sub frame which is then overclad creating a pitched roof to enable water run-off. This is a cost effective solution which causes minimal disruption to occupants and each system is tailor made to suite both size and structural requirements. Ashjack is suitable for modular buildings, new build or refurbishment projects and considerably extends the life of the building and reduces ongoing maintenance costs.
