Lead wood core roll is a truly essential component for jointing or joining separate bays of lead roofing.
What is Lead Wood Core Roll?
Lead wood core roll is also a much utilised product on tall, sloping and steeply pitched roofs. As well as being used on ridges, hips, and flat roofing areas, lead core roll is particularly popular for use on high pitched roofs and areas of lead cladding with a very bold joint appearance. Lead core roll is often preferred in this situation due to its unique design, allowing for the correct expansion and contraction in the lead sheet, cladding and lead flashing.
Expansion and contraction of lead sheet and cladding is predominantly caused by weather related fluctuations in temperature. The lead core wood rolls are treated and shaped as shown below, special attention has been made to the base of the lead wood core roll with an undercut to the base, purposely designed and shaped to prevent wind lift.
