We are proud to be introducing Leadax by Cromar to the shelves of Frank Ratcliffe Roofing Centre! Leadax is the first lead alternative in the world that holds the same properties as traditional lead, with no harmful effects caused to health or the environment! Not only does it cost considerably less than traditional lead, but it also comes with a thickness matching that of code 5 lead!

Here’s why you should try Leadax:

Leadax is a non-toxic, fully sustainable lead-alternative flashing, which contains no heavy metals, unlike alternative water-resistant materials.

To help reduce wastage, this product is manufactured from a byproduct of laminated glass  production.

This product is 75% lighter than traditional lead, making it an easier and safer product to work with.

It is available in longer strips than traditional lead. This allows for less overlap, therefore requiring less materials.

Independent tests show Cromar Leadax as having the same waterproof properties as traditional lead.Even in the most extreme weather conditions, there are no problems with processing this product by hand. It is available in longer roll lengths and widths on request, with a short waiting time. Also, unlike other lead-alternative products, this product will leave absolutely no marks on roof tiles and is guaranteed to last 25 years!

This product is available in 6m rolls in:
150mm, 250mm, 300mm, 450mm, 600mm

Also available from this collection:
Lap Sealants (310ml)
Fixing Clips (25 clips)
