New Colours and Extended Confidex® Guarantee

Tata Steel launch new 3-layer Colorcoat Prisma®

Tata Steel have launched the next generation of Colorcoat Prisma® prefinished steel, now with 3 layers as standard. Utilising cutting-edge clear coat technology Colorcoat Prisma® offers greatly enhanced aesthetics with superior colour and gloss retention.

The new product delivers superior UV and corrosion protection to the highest European standards, and is now available with an extended Confidex® Guarantee of up to 40 years.  Colorcoat Prisma® is available across the majority of Euroclad roof and wall profiles offering an aesthetic, high quality and complete building envelope solution.

Euroclad Flashings – Broader product and material options

Euroclad has been producing high quality flashings on short lead times since 1982. Our internal flat sheet capability allows the production of flashings up to 3.658m long and our service is also hard to match, with the potential for 24hour turnaround of orders, depending on delivery address. We are committed to innovation to improve product choice and service. This commitment has seen the development of Raintite membrane-lined and insulated gutters, Elite flashings, Shingle cladding tiles and most recently the availability of flashings made from XL Forte and Spectrum coated steels. This all means greater choice for your flashings, with the same high level of service and short lead times.

Flashings Sales Manager Dale Evans commented: “With the addition of new products such as shingles to our range of quintessential flashings, and the broadening of material choices to include the popular XL Forte and Spectrum materials, we are striving to satisfy customers’ needs, through offering a range of potential alternatives. This demonstrates our commitment to innovation, which feeds our aim to improve our quality and service and ultimately provide current and future customers with the solutions they need.”

The future of modern, energy-efficient homes

The future of modern, energy-efficient homes
—Efficiency and style at Exeter eco-housing development—

Holland Park is Exeter’s first ever zero carbon housing development. Located at the edge of Exeter Golf and Country Club in Old Rydon Lane, it comprises 40 premium properties made with exceptional craftsmanship and fitted with furnishings and appliances of the highest specification.

Each property is AA energy rated under the UK’s Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) regulations and all have zero carbon emissions due to their use of solar PV systems.

The construction specification for the luxury properties in Holland Park highlighted the need for energy-efficient products that also offer a striking contemporary style. To achieve these characteristics, the project’s installer Progressive Systems Ltd chose Euroclad’s VieoZinc warm roofing system to be used on the properties.

Connecting People with Nature

Sustainability is at the very heart of Euroclad’s manufacturing and is critical to key Supply Chain Partnerships. Euroclad endorses the sustainable credentials of Colorcoat® pre-finished steel and it’s BES6001 responsible sourcing certification, which is a core element of Elite Systems.
Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® and Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel are both manufactured by Tata Steel at their Shotton site in North Wales, surrounded by the Dee Estuary. The site balances industrial manufacturing with the environment and is home to open natural spaces and various wildlife species such as pond life, Terns and Canada Geese.
For World Environment day on the 5th of June, staff at Shotton will be celebrating by “Connecting People with Nature” through a series of educational walks through the diverse environments, as well as guided tours of the Tern Lagoons – which is officially a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

World Environment Day 

A Platform for Action
World Environment Day is the United Nations’ most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.
The People’s Day
Above all, World Environment Day is the ‘people’s day’ for doing something to take care of the Earth or become an agent of change. That ‘something’ can be focused locally, nationally or globally; it can be a solo action or involve a crowd – everyone is free to choose.

The Theme
Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2017 is connecting people to nature.
The Host
Every World Environment Day has a different global host country, where the official celebrations take place. The focus on the host country helps highlight the environmental challenges it faces, and supports the effort to address them. This year’s host is Canada.

Safety Schemes in Procurement

Enhancing our Health and Safety Systems to be simpler and more transparent

Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) is an initiative that puts safety at the heart of procurement. Supported by the HSE, SSIP aims to streamline prequalification and drive unnecessary cost and confusion out of supplier health and safety assessment.

We have recently enhanced our Occupational Health and Safety Management System, which complies with the requirements of BS OHSAS 18001:2007, to include SSIP, providing greater convenience and transparency for our entire supply chain.

TIME FLIES

ARRESTING DESIGN FROM EUROCLAD

Looking back into our archives has brought back fond memories of some of the landmark buildings that we have been lucky enough to supply.

Ten years ago, in the same year that the iPhone was launched and French high speed passenger train, the TGV, reached a top speed of 574.8 km/h (357.2 mph), breaking the record for the world’s fastest conventional train, we released a press release about the Gloucestershire Constabulary County Police Headquarters, at the time featuring the longest continuous sheet lengths that we had produced at 125m.

Taking the shape of an ellipse, the Euroseam standing seam roof spans around 8,500m2 of floor space. Finished in Moorland Green, the roof forms part of a building designed to present a dynamic and inspiring appearance for 400 members of staff at the Quedgeley-based headquarters. An area planted as a ‘green roof’ parallels the smooth, precise lines of self-curved aluminium.

Innovation Is Our Motivation

As one of the most popular profiles that Euroclad has produced in its 36-year history, the 32/1000 profile continues to be in high demand.

To help meet that demand and to achieve our objective to consistently deliver on time and in full, we have invested in the development of new manufacturing machinery for the 32/1000 profile. In so doing we seized the opportunity to improve the roof profile side-lap detail in order to create a more accurate fit, making installation even easier and more reliable.

Benefits of the change

  • Fully nested sidelap
  • Better integration with rooflights at upslope end laps
  • Easier integration of sealants

The new profile is now in production and is the default 32mm Euroclad profile, with the preceding profile being discontinued over the coming months.
