New Dark Falzinc from Kalzip

Introducing new Dark Falzinc - an extremely cost-effective and beautifully elegant slate grey finished addition to the Kalzip range of Foldable aluminium building materials.

Ideal for use on virtually any fully supported roofing, cladding and soffit application, Dark Falzinc is a lightweight and malleable yet robust and sustainable material that’s particularly suitable for matching in environmentally sensitive rural locations and conservation areas.

Easy to handle and quick to install by forming into traditional raised seams, Dark Falzinc is an incredibly strong, flexible and durable aluminium building material which mellows gracefully over time. It is manufactured using a core of corrosion-resistant aluminium alloy that is electroplated on both sides with a thin layer of a dark zinc alloy composition - a unique PEGAL process patented by Kalzip.

BBA certified (Certificate No 08/4571) and with a life expectancy of at least 40 years (even under the most adverse environmental conditions), Kalzip Foldable aluminium is installed by skilfully hand-crafting the material into raised seam sheets, panels, flashings and trims - these raised seams can be specified to run horizontally, vertically and diagonally. The material’s flexibility also allows it to be laid to a smooth curve which offers architects endless creative design possibilities for contemporary new build applications as well as tremendous scope for renovation projects.

Kalzip Foldable aluminium is supplied by weight to specialist approved contractors in 600mm and 670mm width coils in material thicknesses of 0.7mm and 1.0 mm and is also available in flat sheet form in lengths of up to 3 metres.
