Code 5 Lead Flashing
Code 5 lead flashing, with a 2.24mm thickness, is the next step up from the standard code 4 and is, therefore, more suitable for slightly more demanding applications – especially if more severe weather conditions are expected.
Due to the 24% increase in the thickness of the code 4 option, code 5 lead flashing is better equipped to withstand severe weather, such as increased rainfall, high winds and more. Depending on the location of the property and the usual climate, this could provide an essential additional layer of security.
Listed and historical buildings, such as churches, are prime examples of where code 5 lead flashing is likely to be used, and where thicker lead is recommended. We stock various sizes of code 5 lead flashing, including 150mm, 200mm, 300mm x 3m, and 300 x 6m amongst others.
The Advantages of Code 5 Lead Flashing
Code 5 lead flashing, in many ways, is the best of both worlds between lightweight and heavy-duty lead. This is because the lead is still relatively adaptable and can be used in a wide variety of environments and projects, whilst providing the security not quite afforded by thinner strips.
The maximum length of code 5 lead flashing (1.5m) is 50% longer than code 3 lead flashing. This helps to reduce the number of strips and cutting required to complete the job in hand. While the thicker lead strips are more expensive than code 3 and 4 alternatives, the additional strength provided will reduce costs in other areas – such as refurbishment works. Code 5 lead flashing is recommended for buildings that must withstand severe weather because of its strength.
