Developers and homeowners are always looking for low maintenance metal solutions for cladding and standing seam roofing. Natural and pre-weathered zincs are often specified, but the challenges they face from underside zinc corrosion, as well as the risk of unwanted trapped moisture, mean correct installation is important.  Even the risk of micro-cracks forming during cold weather must be considered.

GreenCoat PLX, a material developed in Sweden to meet the challenges of Scandinavia’s harsh environment, is ideal for UK roofing and cladding. It’s thick galvanised coating and eco-friendly top layer make it an ideal choice for metal roofing contractors and architects alike. Unlike zinc, GreenCoat PLX can be formed and seamed at sub-zero temperatures.

For this East London development, GreenCoat PLX met all the requirements. Crisp seams, long life and suitability to cold or warm roof build-ups meant it was an easy decision for the development team.
