Rolled Lead Sheet for Roofing
Lead sheet is a versatile material that can be used for a wide range of roofing applications. It is a popular choice for flashings, valley gutters, porches, and dormers on residential property. Lead sheet can also be used for decorative purposes, and it can be the focal point for both traditional and contemporary buildings.
Lead sheet is a durable and long-lasting material that is resistant to corrosion and weathering. It is also a relatively lightweight material, which makes it easy to install. Lead sheet is available in a variety of thicknesses, so it can be customized to meet the specific needs of each project.
The British Standard BS EN 12588 requires thickness consistency for lead sheet. This standard is achieved through a rolling process that involves passing slabs of lead back and forth between high-pressure rollers. The process is computer controlled to consistently obtain an exact predetermined thickness and knitted grain structure. This ensures that the performance of the product can be accurately predicted while it is in use.
BS EN 12588 guarantees:
A range of standard thicknesses with a tolerance of +/- 5%
The alloy used conforms to quality of no less than 99.81% Lead
