Capital Steel Buildings utilise the best materials available with the use of the highest quality cladding manfactured by the respected A Steadman and Sons.
The steel outer skin is 0.5mm thick and the inner is 0.4mm thick, the steel is either hot dipped galvanised to BS EN 10142:2000 or BS EN 10147:2000 or is Aluzinc coated. These panels are supplied with a guarantee of up to 25 years and the manufacturing process itself is certified to ISO 9001:2000 which is a guarantee of quality standards due to regular audits. AS35 panels have a predicted service life of 40 years. Time to first maintenance depends upon the finish and the environmental conditions but can be as high as 30 years. Coatings will degrade more rapidly in industrial or marine air conditions as oxidisation is normally accelerated in these environments and dark finishes will fade more rapidly than light ones. Service life can be increased by treating cut edges with site applied touch up paint at the time of cutting. Another excellent feature of the AS35 panel system is that they are unaffected by mould, fungi or mildew and they do not support vermin.
Where insulation is not required we can specify the full range of Steadmans single skin cladding i.e. AS 13/3, AS24, A30 and AS34.
AS13/3 and AS30 roof sheets can be supplied with anti condensation fabric on the inside to inhibit condensation - No Sweat!!
