What is Mabati? 

Mabati is a Swahili name for corrugated galvanized iron sheets which are used to cover a house. Mabati is usually a building material that is composed of the sheets of galvanized mild steel that are rolled to be able to produce a linear corrugated pattern.


The corrugations help in increasing the bending strength of the sheet in a direction perpendicular to corrugations, and not parallel to them as steel must be stretched to bend perpendicular to corrugations.


Mabati is lightweight and it can easily be transported. It is widely used in Kenya, especially in the rural areas and the military buildings such as sheds and water tanks.
