Obtaining zinc for building projects has always been influenced by the supply of zinc sheeting, normally in 100kg coils. With a product costing thousands of pounds a tonne, a 100kg coil is expensive, and if you only need 110kg for a project you may end up having to buy 200kg.
SIG Zinc & Copper have been aware of this issue for some time but now you can make substantial savings when specifying hard metals for your roofing or cladding project. With the new de-coiler machine from SIG Zinc & Copper you will now be able to get the exact materials you want, in the format that suits the project, so you can install at a reasonable cost.
The new machine is the only one in the UK and represents an investment of around half a million pounds by SIG plc.
Benefits of UK metal fabrication:
Fabricating metal roofing and cladding in the UK to precise needs has benefits for all the supply chain:
Clients dont have to pay for metals they dont need, and can support UK industry at the same time;
Architects can use hard metals on their projects in the way they want more easily;
Roofing Contractors you can price for the product the client wants, and dont have to hold expensive stock; and
