Benefits of Lead flashing
The Code 4 Lead Roll by Midland Lead is considerably more flexible and resistant to wear when compared to the older Code 3 option due to its increased gauge making it a suitable choice for almost every type of pitched roofing including vertical cladding, dormer roofs and cheeks, as well as a variety of flashings (such as hip, ridge, chimney, apron, and cover ones). If you’re looking for lead flashing, Code 4 will help waterproof your roof for generations.
Lead is malleable but durable, and it typically lasts over 100 years. Lead is a sustainable and environmentally friendly product too. It is 100% recyclable and has a significantly smaller impact on global warming than the production of synthetic materials, not to mention it is also cost-effective, practical and stylish, easy to use and comes in a range of sheet thickness codes to suit your project’s needs.
This Code 4 Lead Roll is 1.8 mm thick (which is an increase of 36%) and weigh 20.41 kg per square metre. This extra thickness means additional resistance to thermal movement which enables you to increase the maximum length of flashing by 50%. The Code 4 lead prices are still competitive and cost effective.
Lead sheet works out cheaper every time, because it is a long-term solution.
The Midland Lead machine cast lead sheet is approved by the British Board of Agrément (BBA) and comes with a 60-year guarantee. Our rolled (or milled) lead sheet conforms to BS EN 12588 and has a 50-year guarantee. But the working life expectancy of all types of lead sheet is much longer. Even at a conservative estimate, it should last you well over a hundred years. That’s not a short-term solution; it’s an investment.
Non-lead alternatives can’t match that! Most manufacturers don’t know how long their products will last. And they’re not prepared to guarantee them for anything over 10 to 20 years.
And don’t forget, even when your lead does need replacing, there is still a considerable value in the old material, so you can sell it on or recycle
Lead has been a common choice of building material for centuries and is more popular than ever in modern times. If lead is correctly installed, then no other metal can match its longevity and protection properties.
A widespread classic choice, the Code 4 Lead Roll has a long history in the industry because it is very easy to extract, work with, and smelt.
Lead sheet is adaptable and fit-for purpose
Lead is incredibly easy to use. It works alongside other building products, it is non-corrosive and flexible. Lead sheet doesn’t lift in high winds and it can withstand – and can be fitted in – any sort of weather.
Offering durability, longevity and enduring good looks, it’s very easy to see why lead has stayed so popular. And lead sheet can be used in so many ways, from roofing and cladding to radiation protection to sound-proofing.
Our CE mark EN14783 shows that our machine cast and rolled lead sheet are suitable for all roofing and cladding applications, including flat and pitched roofing, cladding, flashing, guttering and fine detail work.
