The UK’s most innovative Zinc Building Products Manufacturer

VM ZINC’s range includes solid zinc roofing, cladding, facade and zinc rainscreen systems in a variety of colours, to meet the most complex design requirements. It also supplies a range of rainwater goods as well as decorative roofing items such as weather vanes and finials which can be made to individual specification.

Due to the use of unique manufacturing techniques, products can be supplied with a pre-weathered appearance which provides a self-protecting patina and continues to age in the normal manner. Being a natural product, it provides a ’living skin’ which requires very little maintenance. Zinc is 100% recyclable and in Western Europe, more than 90% of zinc used in construction is currently being recycled.

VM Zincs service is based on the maintenance of detailed technical support to architects, main contractors and roofers throughout their projects, to ensure that products’ life cycle routinely exceeds 40 years.

Zinc Roofing Systems

Zinc standing seam roofing solutions can accommodate straight and curved designs of significant complexity, thus providing great scope for design creativity. VM Zinc Standing seam is suitable for roofs with a pitch above 3 degree, and available in standard widths of 530 mm, though non-standard widths can also be produced between 60 and 600 mm. VM ZINC PLUS is a standing seam system for warm roofs which can be installed on mineral wool or PIR insulation without ventilating the underside.

Zinc Cladding, Facade & Rainscreen Systems

Standing seam, flat lock, overlapping and interlocking zinc cladding systems are available for both vertical and horizontal application in a wide variety of colours, VM Zinc’s interlocking panel facade systems having been the first in the UK to achieve BRE certification (BRE137/07). Self-supporting, sine wave profiles and an overlapping panel system are also available. Such facade solutions provide a visually distinctive character and neat, contemporary appearance.

Pluline Zinc Rainwater Goods

A comprehensive range of PLULINE zinc rainwater goods, designed for houses and conservatories, is available in pre-weathered QUARTZ-ZINC and ANTHRA-ZINC. Delivered in kit form, it uses concealed brackets, stop ends, corners, running outlets, zinc downpipes and self-locking pipe brackets. PLULINE is available in half round, box and OG profiles.

Heritage Refurbishment and Restoration

Zinc is a lightweight and safe alternative to lead and ages in a similar manner. As a result, VM Zinc is routinely involved in specifications for roofing restoration projects throughout Europe. In the UK it has supplied material for a number of listed properties.

Zinc and Copper Details

Deco’Toit is a range of decorative items such as finials and weathervanes of varying design, made in zinc and copper. It also extends to details such as dormers, balustrades and bulls eye windows. Our extensive range of zinc cladding, roofing and facade systems reflects our wealth of technical and practical experience, enabling us to supply systems for diverse climates and to meet different standards worldwide.

VMZINC Ornaments make shingles for Harrods roof
November 2013

For more than 100 years, copper shingles have been used on large areas of Harrods’ roof. Restoration work on the Knightsbridge store resulted in VMZINC craftsmen being commissioned to create new moulds from existing profiles in order to reproduce shingles to the highest standards of authenticity. All have been individually stamped and installed by specialist hard metal contractors Albany Brent and NDM (Metal Roofing & Cladding) Ltd.

VMZINC Ornaments have a tradition of zinc and copper ornamental work for roofs which dates from the first half of the 19th century. Its extensive list of commissions is now showing a steadily increasing number in the UK. Such rare belief in the retention of key metalworking skills enables historic buildings to be restored and elements of the roof retained as key building features. In addition to standard products such as finials and weather vanes, VMZINC manufactures decorated rainwater goods and balustrades as well as dormer and bulls eye windows, cupolas, gutter fronts and ridge caps.

New VMZINC website goes live
October 2013

The new VMZINC website, www.vmzinc.co.uk contains a wealth of new information on zinc roofing, façade and rainwater systems. It includes greater detail than ever before on handmade zinc ornaments, including those of standard and bespoke design for heritage and contemporary buildings. In addition, systems such as the VMZ Composite, a multilayered panel made up of two sheets of zinc 0.5 mm thick and thermo-glued on either side of a mineral-rich polyethylene core, provides a façade of rigidity, smoothness and exceptional fire resistance. Design assistance include detail downloads, information on training and a CPD presentation while, for the first time, a page is devoted to the critical subject of roofing underlay. For interior designers, VMZINC Opus is a new eco-designed system in a variety of formats and colours that can be used to create subtle and highly distinctive interiors. Literature downloads are also available of new standing seam roofing, rainwater and facades brochures while new photography of projects throughout the UK and the rest of the world is available to view.
