Code 3 Lead Flashing
Code 3 Lead Flashing.
Code 3 Lead Flashing is the thinnest and lightest of all roofing lead. Measuring just 1.32mm in thickness, it is typically used to create lead soakers on slate or tile roofs. Identified with a green label, Code 3 is only suitable for the lightest of applications.
This Code 3 Flashing is milled lead produced to the BS EN 12588, which the Lead Sheet Association offers a 50 year warranty on all lead meeting this standard. The longevity of lead makes this an extremely cost-effective material whilst still being friendly to the environment.
What is Code 3 Lead Flashing used for?
- Lead soakers.
Features and benefits:
- Thickness: 1.32mm.
- Best used for creating lead soakers due to its malleability.
- Easier to work than cast lead.
- Less likely to split or crack than cast lead.
- When correctly installed will last over 100 years, saving you time and money in the long term compared to alternative products.
- Roofing lead is fully recyclable (lead has one of the highest recycling rates of all materials in common use today).
- 50 year warranty.
The Lead Sheet Association (LSA) recommends that you use patination oil on all lead installations. This helps you prevent white powdery deposits from forming on the lead and reduces the likelihood of water runoff from staining surrounding slates, tiles or brickwork.
