Stainless Steel has a guaranteed performance and design life expectancy of 70 years, great material used in industrial and marine environments. A versatile material which can be used for both for standing seam roof details and batten roll profiles.
The strength, durability and malleability make stainless steel an excellent material for all weathering applications, such as flashings, copings and gutters. Stainless steel has a high fatigue strength and low coefficient of expansion so that long lengths can be used in roofs and gutters which speeds up installation.
The natural weathered appearance is useful in conservation projects, where planning authorities would like to retain the appearance of lead but where the weight and costs may be prohibitive. The strength and low scrap value is also an advantage where theft is a problem.
