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 delimitation 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.

Standing seam roofing, unlike a traditional pitched roof, has each sheet fixed to the structure of the building 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 an 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 prove to be a cost-effective option in many cases.
