Code 5 Roll of Lead Flashing - 390mm x 3m
Milled Lead is the only lead flashing manufactured to BS EN 12588, the British Standard for lead and lead alloys. The production process ensures the product is consistent and has a similar thickness throughout the entire length of the roll. It achieves this by passing a lead slab continually through two hydraulic rollers until a specific thickness throughout has been produced. Hence the common name for the product rolled lead .
Code 5 milled lead is recommended when replacing and installing new lead valleys and when working on listed or historical buildings such as Churches. You can use Code 5 lead in maximum lengths of 1.5m as it advisable not to have your flashings exceed this length. Burton Roofing Merchants stock 3m and 6m rolls which will enable either 2 or 4 pieces to be cut from each roll respectively.
At Burton Roofing Merchants we carry vast stocks of lead throughout our group such as the popular Code 5 Lead 450mm x 6m, along with many other sizes to suit your roofing requirements.
