Non Branded Aluminium...
As well as supplying metals of well known “branded” manufacturers, ALM HM also stocks some non branded materials for projects where no particular manufacturer has been specified. The non branded materials are manufactured to high quality EN norms however may not carry the guarantees specified by the well known brands.
ALM HM are able to obtain Falzonal material in the various colours coils widths and thicknesses available.
We are also the main UK supplier for Falzinc with its patented pegal process. Grey Falzinc is available in 600mm and 670mm wide whilst Falzinc silver and Black are only available in 600mm wide - Falzinc sheet is also available.
Elval Aluminium with their unique and highly cost effective copper and zinc clone finishes can be obtained in sheet dimensions 2x1 / 3x1 / 4x1 and coils 600mm and 670mm wide. Thicknesses can range from 0.7mm in coil up to 3mm in sheet. Thickness can be variable according to the application requirement, 0.7 thick aluminium for example would be used for standing seam roofing and cladding.
Thicknesses above this would be used for cladding panels, both supported and self-supporting. Aluminium is the most popular metal in use with regard to external roofing and cladding. This is due to it being readily available and its ability to cover wide expanses at a low cost. Being a painted or coated product, Elval aluminium can be obtained in any RAL colour and with huge advances in paint technology, the colour lasts for many many years with guarantees from 5 to 25 years depending on the finish selected and the projects location.
Coastal and Industrial environments affect the life expectancy of all metals used in construction. With natural material finishes such as zinc, copper or stainless steel the finish is never guaranteed, only the metal. With Aluminium the painted surface will still have a guarantee, but this could be limited to 5 or 10 years depending on proximity to the sea or industrial area. Whilst surface finishes can be more vulnerable in these locations, the metals themselves will still out perform many other products used for the same application giving the building owner many more years of low maintenance service.
Aluminium is the third most abundant element (after oxygen and silicon), and the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust. It makes up about 8% by weight of the Earth's solid surface. Aluminium is remarkable for the metal's low density and for its ability to resist corrosion due to the phenomenon of passivation. Unlike some metals used for roofing and cladding, aluminium is well tolerated by plants and animals. Aluminium is effectively 100% recyclable and in Europe aluminium experiences high rates of recycling, ranging from 42% of beverage cans, 85% of construction materials and 95% of transport vehicles.
Recycled aluminium is known as secondary aluminium, but maintains the same physical properties as primary aluminium. Secondary aluminium is produced in a wide range of formats and is employed in 80% of alloy injections. Another important use for aluminium is for extrusion.
