Cost of Iron Sheets in Kenya.

Cost of Iron Sheets in Kenya.

Iron sheets in Kenya are sold in modules of 2m, 2.5m and 3m lengths with widths of 0.85m.
Available iron sheets come in gauge 30 and 32. In the earlier years, gauge 26 iron sheets were available but currently, these have to be ordered directly from the major iron sheet manufacturer factories.
Actual fitting will also have an overlap of approximately 150 to 200mm.This reduces the actual coverage on the roof.
The lower the gauge, the thicker the iron sheet.

Gauge 30 .

2M length of gauge 30 costs kes 470 in an average hardware shop around Nairobi.
This translates to kes 277 per m2.

Gauge 32.

2M length of gauge 32 costs kes 410 in an average hardware shop around Nairobi.
This translates to kes 242 per m2.

Gauge 30 box profile prepainted.

2M length of gauge 30 costs kes 760 in an average hardware shop around Nairobi.
This translates to kes 448 per m2.
