Multibeam PSB

1. Research and development
The Multibeam profile, widely sold by Profil du Futur on the French market, benefits from 30 years’ application in Europe and around the world, during which our engineers have developed it by at all times having the concern for ever more competitive application and installation.

The use of Sendzimir galvanised steel (275 gr/m² double sided and up to 600 gr/m² double sided) with a guaranteed elastic limit of 350 N/mm² and 390 N/mm² contributes to the performance and quality of the Multibeam profile. 

Multibeam systems have been tested in a programme faithfully reproducing the conditions in use with different types of roofing. The results of the tests were used as the basis for producing a technical specification, checked by the main control organisations SOCOTEC - APAVE - CEP VERITAS. 

This experience has also allowed us to change to new hip systems enabling the cost function (design + material + manufacture + assembly) to be optimised even further by reducing the number of accessories necessary by creating new sections: PSB

2. Commercial: Local representatives and technical sales staff
