Choosing your Lead Flexislates
Our choice of Calder lead and rubber flexislates are aesthetically pleasing, robust, long lasting and easy to install. Flexislates are always recommended when a weather tight seal is required around pipes, aerials and similar protrusions that penetrate tile, slate or felt roofs. The Calder lead flexislate range is manufactured in Code 4 lead with a bonded EPDM synthetic rubber sleeve securely bonded in position. Code 4 lead can be used for many roofing applications. At 1.8mm thick, and weighing 20.41 kg/m2, Code 4 lead is a popular form of lead for slates and flashing because it provides malleability and resistance to splits. Lead is an excellent building material that provides a consistency of performance over many years.
