Is Zinc roofing or cladding too expensive for your project as it cant be bought in non-standard sizes? Not any longer as this beautiful hard metal is now available in bespoke quantities, but only from SIG Zinc & Copper.
Zinc sheeting normally comes in 100kg coils and costs thousands of pounds a tonne, so for example, if you need 110kg for a project, you might waste almost 50% of it.
As well, if youre looking for non-standard tray or panel sizes, or a small quantity for a bespoke extension roof, contractors may even refuse to price, because it simply wasnt worth their while.
SIG plc is one of the largest material suppliers in the UK and with our partners, weve developed a titanium Zinc fabrication service. Its a supply chain based solution designed to cut out waste and we supply only whats needed.
Benefits of UK Zinc Fabrication are:
Clients dont have to pay for zinc they dont need, and can still support UK industry;
Architects can use zinc on their projects in the way they want more easily;
Roofing contractors can price for the product the client wants, and dont have to hold expensive stock; and
Main contractors will find it easier to compete for contracts using zinc, with the savings UK fabrication delivers.
As always, SIG Design & Technology will provide a complete impartial design and supply service, from determining performance criteria and the ideal solution through technical design and detailing, specification, material supply and guaranteed installation by DATAC approved contractors.
