Wakaflex® lead-free flashing – the cost-effective answer to lead theft

February 2015

Wakaflex® is a lightweight BBA-certified lead-free flashing in a range of colours for roofing abutment work and sealing gas, oil and wood burner flue penetrations. It has similar malleability to lead and can be stretched without using a forming tool. This makes it ideal for complex detailing and sealing double-lapped tiles which would otherwise require a specialist roofer. Wakaflex has a smooth facing which repels dirt and a high-strength, self-adhesive backing which provides immediate weatherproofing, even on overlaps. Cut by knife or scissors, Wakaflex is not susceptible to thermal movement and can be laid in long lengths without fixing clips.

Haus Profi™ - the cost-effective answer to lead theft

More than 61,000 metal thefts were recorded in 2013, but this understates the true extent of the problem as some police forces did not then categorise burglaries as such. Estimates vary from 110,000 to 125,000 but by the end of 2012 Ecclesiastical Insurance, the UK’s leading church insurer, had received over 9,000 claims worth £25m.

Thefts from churches doubled from 2008-11 and over 1,000 metal thefts take place each week from commercial properties. Incidences such as the primary school in Coseley hit by metal theft five times in as many months lead to thousands of pounds of damage and ultimately uninsurable buildings.

English Heritage referred to ‘an epidemic of lead theft from church buildings’, adding that ‘In some circumstances like-for-like replacement is not prudent’. Haus Profi™ flashings and sealing collars provide the answer as they don’t compromise aesthetics and combine flexibility, stretchability and low cost. They should not be confused with traditional foil-faced flashings which have only a very basic bitumen backing, offer poor adhesion on upstands and no scope to be stretched. For boiler flue penetrations through deeply profiled tiles flashings need to offer the same qualities as lead with sufficient stretchability to be formed easily without special tools or heat. BBA certified Wakaflex® and EasyFlash® can be stretched by up to 50% in length and 15% in width without dramatically affecting the facing quality. They are ideal for upstand and abutment work and more effective than flashing kits supplied by boiler manufacturers. Non-toxic and light in weight, they have a durable Butylon adhesive backing which offers immediate weatherproofing protection, exceptional resistance to wind uplift and, for laps, a self-welding characteristic which ensures immediate adhesion. Unlike lead, products aren’t susceptible to cold working fatigue so weather will rarely prevent a repair taking place.

Used with Sabetoflex® collars, Wakaflex® is particularly useful for sealing flues on plain tile and other double-lapped roofs. No specialist roofer is needed, saving time and money.

Colours are available to match the chosen tile or slate and and there is no risk to potable water. In the event of run-off, no staining is caused.
