Unique opportunity to see Colorcoat Urban® at London’s ExCel

The Colorcoat Urban® team will be showcasing Tata Steel’s inspirational steel standing seam roof and wall cladding system at Grand Designs Live, ExCel London 29 April – 7 May 2017.

Colorcoat Urban® suits any house style and is ideal for houses, apartments, schools and sports pavilions.

You'll find the Colorcoat Urban® team of experts within the ‘Build’ section, Stand B90, where they will be on hand to tell you more about the truly impressive opportunities that this affordable system can achieve and how it can be adapted for use on a range of projects, how quick and easy it is to install and much more.

Incredibly strong and versatile, the standing seam panel is seven times lighter than standard roof tiles making it a great choice for new build, refurbishment or extensions. Particularly popular with self builders there is no limit to the variety of shapes and forms that can be achieved, all designed meticulously to help you create a stunning roof, whether you are looking to stand out from the crowd, blend seamlessly in with your surroundings or transform your existing roof into something more modern.

Supplied as a kit of made to measure parts, the system has been specifically developed to offer fast, simple, on-site installation and its long-term performance has been recognised by the BBA and is guaranteed for up to 40 years, fully protected by Tata Steel’s weatherproof guarantee.

The ‘Award Winning’ system provides a showcase modern aesthetic for urban roofs. The British-made metal standing seam panels can be laid at pretty much any angle down to a minimum of 5 degrees. Standard panel widths are 514mm for houses and other low-rise buildings, with a narrower 305mm width available to suit taller structures or those exposed to high winds.

The Colorcoat Urban® range has been developed in a series of architect-inspired matt hues to suit built-up environments, and is excellent value for money at a really affordable price and can fit in with most budgets to suit a wide range of house styles. The high quality pre-finished steel is UV resistant, helping to retain its distinctive colour and the combination of steel and highly durable finish makes the Urban Seam® a low maintenance option.

For those seeking a complete solution for their project, the system can be further complemented with a selection of colour-matched gutters, downpipes, fascia and soffits. The system will also easily accept most renewable technologies such as solar panels, rainwater harvesting units and will also happily accommodate roof lights, vent pipes and other roof accessories.
