Traditional standing seam metal products using metals, such as lead, have been around for hundreds of years. The metal sheets are formed on site using manual techniques and to work these soft metals requires a highly skilled, specialist team of installers to achieve good installation. The results using these materials are often charming and distinctive due to the different colours each metal can display as they weather and age. They are more commonly used on roofs and form cold roof spaces.
The Building Regulations give a good guide to the issues to address, however, we know that a performance gap still exists. Actual performance of buildings in use is getting more focus especially now that the net zero carbon target been set. If standing seam metal envelope products are chosen carefully, they can help to ensure that buildings will be easier to construct, sustainable and built to last.
