All Metal Roofing offers an extensive range of outstanding materials
All Metal Roofing has spent many years working tirelessly sourcing and implementing the highest standard of materials for our product range. Utilising our vast knowledge of hard metals and their applications, our directors, managers, contractors and design and development teams have forged strong working relationships with world class manufacturing companies to select materials that meet our stringent requirements and those of our clients.
Our extensive range includes traditional standing seam and batten roll, long strip standing seam, rain screen cladding, diamond tiles, shingles and flat-lock cladding, ornamental work, gutters, rainwater pipes and parapet wall capping. We can also provide a full trade package allowing for the associated substrates below the exterior finish to include structural liner trays, insulation, vapour control layers and timber work.
The materials are supplied by companies outstanding in their fields such as: Rheinzink, Follansby, Corus, KME, Falzonal, Luvata, Ugine ALZ, VM Zinc and Novelis.
Aluminium alloys are most useful in the aerospace, transportation and structural industries and the principal ore of Aluminium is Bauxite. In the roofing and cladding industry, it has a wide variety of uses as compounds of oxides and sulphates. (Atomic Mass: 26.981539 +- 0.0000008u).
The metal has been used for thousands of years and has been alloyed with various metals for an abundance of uses in all aspects of modern living. In the roofing and cladding industries, copper has been used for guttering and downspouts and principally for roofs, particularly oddly shaped or domed as it is easy to form. (Atomic Mass: 63.546 +- 0.003u).
Discovered in 1746 by Marggraf, it is principally used to protect iron from corrosion by a hot dip galvanization process. In the roofing and cladding industry, it has both a weatherproofing and aesthetic role as it ages with the building. (Atomic Mass: 65.38 +- 0.0002u).
The carbon content in the steel can vary from 0.002 to 2.1% in weight and act as a hardening agent for the iron atoms. The variation in tensile strength, hardness and ductility comes from the amounts of alloying elements used in the process. In the roofing and cladding industries, Stainless Steel has a variety of uses including long life, low maintenance roofing and cladding. (Atomic Mass: Varies depending on the ratio of carbon to metal).
The most common form of this material is GI or Galvanised Iron, which is used for air ducts and sanitation. In the roofing and cladding industry, Galvanised Steel has the strength of Steel with durable hard wearing anti-corrosion properties ideal for harsh climates. (Atomic Mass: Varies depending on the process involved and the ratio of carbon to metal)
