As one of the most technically superior steel roof manufacturers in the country, Dibsa should be your first port of call for lightweight steel frame and structural solutions.

At Dibsa Structures Ltd our specialists are passionate about the advantages of lightweight steel and are committed to providing exceptional quality steel roofing systems to you and all our clients across the UK.

By doing this, we ensure that our building partners consistently receive the high standard of products that we’ve become known for.

Lightweight steel roofing frame design and development

Based here in Dodwoth, Barnsley, South Yorkshire we are huge supporters of the use of lightweight steel structures for steel roof refurbishment and new build projects. Lightweight steel roofing has many advantages over the more traditional building materials such as timber, and it reduces installation time quite considerably. We have invested a great deal of time and effort into learning everything we possibly can about lightweight steel structures and their application in flat to pitch conversions and modular building, giving  confidence in the products we develop and peace of mind to our clients.

Now, as an established steel roofing manufacturer, we partner with a wide range of architects, structural engineers, roofing contractors, project managers and modular building manufacturers who believe that we offer the most outstanding steel roofing systems and provide a superior level of customer service.

When you approach us for a lightweight steel structure for your steel roofing project, we are able to provide a comprehensive service which includes consultation, advice, structural surveys, design and of course delivery. From inception of a project to it’s completion, all of us here at Dibsa Structures Ltd will be there to help you every step of the way, offering a professional service with a personal touch.

To be a leading steel roofing manufacturer, you need a strong team…

…and at Dibsa, that’s exactly what we’ve got! While we pride ourselves on the high standards of our lightweight steel frames and structures, we understand that any company is only as good as its people – so here’s a brief introduction to the main staff you’ll meet when working with us.
