Structural DamageAs a building owner, one of the first things you need to do is to develop and implement proper waterproofing program. Waterproofing acts as a building’s first line of defence against structural damages, which can weaken many of its components, including the surfaces of walls.

One such investment you should make is the installation of an aluminium coping system.

Coping applications

These systems deliver economical and easy-to-apply finishes to walls and upstanding parapets, connected to pitched or flat roofs. Utilising strap fixers, these copings help prevent water penetration of the capping, whilst still enabling proper ventilation over the walls’ top areas.

Also, with today’s modern copings, you can have them equally retrofitted to existing components or have them added to new buildings. To ensure a full-proof weatherproofing system, fixing does not pass through the copings. The mitring and welding of the fabricated fittings allow for the front face of the copings to have a smooth finish, ensuring things remain aesthetically appealing,

Availability in various finishes and colours

As long as you choose a reliable provider for your coping system, you can gain access to BBA-approved coatings and select from a wide selection of factory applied colours. You may even have your copings feature custom-made or special-ordered colours.

Performance and specifications

UK-manufactured copings have a lightweight feature to ensure that your walls do not receive unwarranted pressure and stress. Choose a well-established name in the coping system industry and you will get a product of utmost durability, non-corrodible, weatherproof, easy-to-install and handle, and have a long life expectancy.

Installing and repairing

To install aluminium copings, installers use a fixing strap profile that does not need coping penetration. In addition, they also make sure that the fixings maintain clean lines by hiding the fixings from the coping’s surface. In most cases, installers can complete the fixing or repair process itself from the roof, which means that they only require external access.
