Machine cast lead or rolled lead… Is there really a difference?
Traditional sandcast lead is available in codes 6-8 and is often supplied cut to the roof bay size. All of our sandcast lead is made onsite in our specialist sandcast workshop using traditional techniques and efficient modern methods.
You will find working with lead and looking after lead much easier with our ancillary products. Covering all aspects of the lead-working process, from treating the lead as soon as it has been laid, to adding the finishing touches, our range includes underlay, expansion joints and fixing clips, patination oil and lead cleaner, and even decorative lead motifs.
Lead is the first choice material for X-ray & Gamma ray ionising radiation protection. We offer a wide range of radiation protection products including lead-lined boards, lead glass, lead doors, lead windows, lead bricks and chevron rails, radiation protection aprons and spectacles, fixed and mobile radiation protection screens and lead-lined cabinets.
From lead-lined acoustic boards to lead ballast, lead has proved itself as highly versatile and durable. As well as having exceptional longevity as a roofing material, lead is an excellent barrier against noise and radiation and makes an ideal counterweight. We work across industry sectors and you’ll find our experience and flexibility adds value to any project.
