Cut Edge Treatment/Cut Edge Corrosion
When the cut edges of coated metal cladding and sheeting are subject to exposure to the elements for long periods of time delamination may occur, meaning that the factory coating can peel back exposing the untreated metal underneath. Treating the edges of Sheeting will prolong the life of the existing metal cladding preventing any or further corrosion. Our specialist treatment comes with a long-term warranty.
Our cut edge treatment consists of thorough cleaning and preparing of the corroded area, followed by the application of the coating system.
Composite panels are a three layer system. Consisting of a top sheet (the surface of the roof), the insulation layer and, the liner sheet which can be seen from the inside of the building. Wall cladding can come in a variety of various panel types that offer different profiles, colours, finishes and styles.
Eaves Detail Of Composite Panels
Various styles of cladding are in and these are available in a variety of colours and finishes although there is a standard colour range.
Standing seam roofing, unlike a traditional pitched roof, has each sheet fixed to the buildings structure in one length. Standing Seam Roofing was first seen on large retail and industrial units, but is now increasingly used on smaller new builds; it has become an established style over the last decade.
Curved roofs also use the standing seam method and are fixed in much the same way as built up systems with a internal layer fixed in place first, followed by support brackets. The top sheet is often aluminium lending the roof a metallic & modern appearance but may also be specified in steel which can be prove to be a cost effective option in many cases.
