Samac has announced it is to bring a lead replacement system Rooftec Flex to the UK market for the first time.
The solution, Rooftec Flex, is a high-quality replacement for traditional lead which is made from the extremely durable EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), a material that is already used in flat roofing systems.
With a core of expanded aluminium mesh, it is lightweight, available in long roll lengths and easy to install. According to Samac, Rooftec Flex 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.
