Non-lead flashings

Lead sheet is often used to waterproof roof and façade junctions, but it has its limitations. Ubbink manufactures a range of non-lead flashings, which can be used for most applications for which lead sheet is used, but are:

  • much lighter in weight, which make them easier, quicker and safer to dress
  • durable
  • non-toxic
  • environmentally friendly

Detailed information

Ubbink’s flashings are either manufactured with self-adhesive strips or backing or can be secured with a specific sealant to prevent wind-uplift; in the case of Ubiflex Standard up to 160 km/h.
