Code 6, 7 and 8 Lead Flashing
ERoofing stocks a range of lead flashing rolls that are suitable for even the heaviest duty needs. For when there is a need for a more robust solution, codes 6, 7 and 8 lead flashings are available to order directly from our website.
While other codes of lead flashings, particularly 4 and 5, are more commonplace, some projects require thicker rolls of lead to provide the best finish. Code 6 lead flashing comes in at 2.65mm in thickness, whole code 7 lead flashings are 3.15mm thick, and code 8 lead flashings are 3.55mm thick.
The extra thickness and additional weight means that these solutions do come at a premium due to the increased amount of lead. With that, however, comes increased thermal movement above codes at the lower end of the spectrum.
Where Codes 6, 7 and 8 Lead Flashings are Used
These thicker forms of lead flashing are used in areas where a more robust product is needed. All codes 6, 7 and 8 can be used for flat/pitched roofing, parapets, and bay tops and balconies, while codes 6 and 7 can also be installed on dormers, pitched valley gutters and vertical cladding.
Code 6 lead flashing can be installed on chimney flashing, apron and cover flashing, and hip and ridge flashing, where 7 and 8 cannot. The correct form of lead flashing must be used, otherwise it can cause issues that will need rectifying further down the line.
