ALM is one of the leading distributors of Enviro Rolled Lead in the UK construction market. Enviro Lead is manufactured to BS EN 12588; 2006 in accordance with British Standard and European Norms for the building industry.
Enviro Lead is available in Codes 3/4/5/6/7/8. The codes relate to the thickness of the metal which can heavily affect the performance and installed weight.
The application for which lead is used will determine which code will be required.
Lead is a highly specified building material as no other metal can match its longevity once correctly installed, and the protection lead offers is second to none.
As a material Enviro Lead is 100% recyclable and the advantages of its use are vast when compared to other materials used for the same purpose. Enviro Rolled Lead Sheet and Flashings can be formed around all areas where water ingress is high risk such as chimney base & rooftile abutments, roofing tiles and brickwork of a building. Due to the malleability of the material itself and the consistency of its thickness, correctly installed Enviro Lead sheet will move with a building, expanding and contracting, coping with the wide range of temperature fluctuations a building can experience.
