Samac is bringing lead replacement system Rooftec Flex to the UK market.
Already widely used across Europe, it provides a high-quality replacement for traditional lead. Unlike other lead replacement products, Rooftec Flex is made from the extremely durable EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), a material that is already extensively used in flat roofing systems.
With a core of expanded aluminium mesh, it has strength, flexibility and is lightweight, available in long roll lengths, quick and easy to install, and is suitable for use anywhere that lead would have been the traditional option, such as chimneys, dormers, ridges, roof abutments, valleys and skylights.
James Robinson, sales and marketing manager at Samac, commented: “We’re always looking for innovative products to add to our ever-expanding range, and we’re delighted to have become the only UK distributor of Rooftec Flex. It’s the EPDM that makes it stand out from other similar lead replacement systems, as it’s a material that’s already tried and tested by those who will be using it, making it an easy option to switch to.”
Samac also supplies the necessary Rooftec Flex fixings and accessories.
