The beauty of steel
Colorcoat Urban® standing seam provides a showcase modern aesthetic for urban roofs. There is no limit to the shape and form that can be achieved and choosing the right profile is crucial, particularly in relation to the size of the build.
The innovative Urban Seam® profile is ideal for houses, apartments, public and commercial buildings, schools, and sports pavilions. Its inherent light weight and strength make it ideal for new build, refurbishment, temporary buildings and over roofing applications.
Available in the Colorcoat Urban® colour range that has been inspired by architects specifically for the urban environment, the natural colours blend with the urban landscape as well as making a bold statement for sustainable urban design in contemporary building. The ability to achieve a stable colour ensures a consistent even tone, which most other roofing materials are unable to achieve.
Ease of installation
Our quick fit system is provided with invisible fixings and has been developed specifically to offer fast, simple, on-site installation. We can provide technical assistance at the design stage and at the start of the installation, and supply the necessary equipment for installation.
Colorcoat Urban® roof and wall panels must be installed in accordance with our recommended requirements and all installers must be Tata Steel trained and approved. We offer a free training course to all installers to ensure every installation achieves the maximum performance.
Developed to require little to no maintenance, providing complete peace of mind
