Traditional metal roofs – since 1949

Tradition and innovation – that is what Kling-Roof, established 1949 in Oberstdorf, stands for. Family Kling combines the production of patented snow retention systems and tinsmithing under a single roof. Still family-run the company has currently 17 skilled and internally qualified employees. A high quality standard takes top priority for all our products such as metal roofs and construction sealings.

The roofs prevent buildings from precipitation and sun exposure. Furthermore and especially in alpine regions like ours they need to carry heavy masses of snow and ice. Already in the 1960-ies Meinhard Kling developed the snow retention clamp for standing seam roofs. This invention was a real milestone in the development of the company and has also set a new standard for tinsmiths all around the world.

In the course of time the name Kling became a common term when it comes to snow retention systems and tinsmithery what paved the way to today’s production of different roof systems as well as corporate sales on a worldwide basis. Furthermore our skilled employees produce metal roofs for the regional and supra-regional market and also special challenges such as the installation of roofs at extremely elevated alpine sites are being dealt with on a daily basis.
