Euroclad is the UK’s home-grown, independent supplier of metal roof and wall products which use non-combustible cores and provide exceptional performance acoustically and thermally for the life of a building. Systems are sustainably credible with proven routes for recycling and disposal.
Euroclad listens to the needs of its customers and offers high performance, cost effective solutions. Cutting edge UK manufacturing maintains Euroclad’s position at the forefront of the cladding industry, supported through on-going investment in technology, people and processes.
As part of our commitment to quality, service and the environment, we operate a Quality Management System approved to BS EN ISO 9001:2008 and an Environmental Management System approved to BS EN ISO 14001:2004. As defined by Approved Document B (England and Wales) and Technical Handbook Section 2 (Scotland).
We aim to work closely with our customers, providing advice on the best solution for each and every project. Euroclad strives for excellence in the manufacture and supply of solutions for the entire metal building envelope. The quality of our products and the highest levels of service are two keystones to the business and ongoing investment in people, process and products is fundamental to achieving consistently high standards.
Euroclad is determined to reduce the environmental impact of its entire activity with a cradle to cradle approach to sustainability that encompasses material sourcing, manufacture, transportation, the product’s useful life and the end of life reuse, recycling and disposal of components. The care shown towards the environment is showcased by the lake that lies at the heart of Euroclad’s headquarters in Cardiff, which attracts and sustains a range of wildlife throughout the year.
Built Up roof and cladding systems have been used for around fifty years in the UK and involve profiled steel or aluminium thin-gauge metal sheets. These profile sheets are often referred to by their shape:
- Trapezoidal profiles are those whose shape is based on a basic trapezoid or trapezium.
- Sinusoidal profile are based on the shape of the sine wave.
- Standing seam - refers to the ’seamed overlap’ on the sheet upsatnd and the secret fix refers to the sheet concealed fixing mechanism.
These metal sheets can be taken to form a liner sheet and an external sheet, which are separated by a spacer system to create a cavity for insulation. Modern built up systems use more complex spacer bar systems designed specifically to reduce cold bridging and enhanced structural performance to accommodate the depth of construction typical of modern buildings.
Wall cladding systems can provide the main aesthetic for a building, as well as achieving many technical performance criteria and accommodating fire performance, resistance to moisture, detailing around fenestration and openings, acoustics, environmental concerns and the host of other technical properties commonly required.
Walls have different performance criteria, generally speaking, from roof systems. However, wall cladding systems also offer a wider range of choice, especially considering cost. It is therefore important to establish two important aspects before starting to specify a wall cladding system: what are the aesthetic requirements, what the performance criteria are and what the budget is.
We have invested heavily in new equipment and personnel for its expanding Architectural Fabrications Division. One major improvement is the addition of a new CNC-controlled, four roll plate bending machine, extending the range of radii of curved metal profiles that can be processed by Euroclad. Particularly suitable for high volumes, it can produce almost any curve from simple half circle bullnoses to elliptical shapes, and offers excellent repeatability. Capable of accommodating sheet lengths of up to 3m, the new machine has infinitely variable speed drive and roller adjustment.
To compliment its range of eaves details Euroclad manufactures a range of gutter systems, including eavesline (out-board) lightweight gutters, composite insulated gutters, membrane lined, steel or aluminium (with T-Prene expansion joints) and single skin gutter systems. Bullnose gutters are also available, and galvanised gutters using G600 galvanised material are supplied on short lead times.
The standard louvre system offers a range of high performance extruded aluminium louvres with comprehensive framing systems to suit all applications including glazing, curtain walling, integrated facades and architectural cladding systems.
The unique aerofoil blade of the Smoothflow louvre system provides for a pleasing architectural feature which at the same time offers enhanced aerodynamic and weathering performance. Extremely versatile, Smoothflow louvres can be installed into any configuration of wall facade. It also acts as a visually attractive screening system.
We are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of pre-finished steel. An extensive range of coil stock is held at the manufacturing base in Cardiff, which can be processed and delivered nationwide as coil or flat sheets.

Euroclad - Bank on Vieo
Euroclad - Bank on Vieo
Developed within the boatyard of Sandbanks Yacht Company are three, approximately 300m² waterfront properties, each valued between £3.35 and £3.6 million; the largest, at 352m², having sold in 2015 for a reputed £3.55 million. What makes these homes so special is the attention to detail given to their construction, helped in large part by Vieo roof and wall cladding, which makes up the main visual exterior.
The homes have been designed to be innovative and striking, and this is nowhere more apparent than in the oblique geometry of the roof and walls. Vieo flat-pan sheets were installed to help achieve the desired visual impact, using this Euroclad product - which was inspired by traditional standing seam roofing - to provide a modern architectural exterior.
VieoZinc was the material used to manufacture Vieo, combining the benefits of an aluminium substrate with a zinc-rich coating to provide a workable, sustainable and affordable material that looks, feels and weathers just as zinc does.
Although experiencing a renaissance in recent years, zinc cladding was popularised in Paris in the 19th Century as part of Baron Hausmannn’s rebuilding programme. In more recent years, VieoZinc has been increasingly used in contemporary architecture, as a visually comparable, less expensive and more easily worked alternative to zinc.
Described as the "fourth most expensive area in the world to live" by the popular press, The Sandbanks peninsular is becoming well recognised for modern, innovative architectural designs, demanded by affluent clients. Measuring just 1km², near Poole in Dorset, the average house price now exceeds £6 million each.
Based on an original scheme by Munden Robinson Architects, Trinity Architecture formed part of a design & build partnership with D & B Spetisbury Construction Limited to create the luxury accommodation in Sandbanks, Poole.
Each house has stunning views overlooking the sheltered water of Poole Harbour, with direct access to the water, private boat storage, secure underground parking and full gym membership.
Likely to be a second home to the rich and famous the kitchen, lounge and dining area is designed into the middle floor, which opens through sliding, folding doors onto a generous balcony.
Each of the five bedrooms has full en-suite facilities, with the largest bedroom being some 28m², not including the en-suite bathroom and separate dressing room. Lower floor facilities include wet room, utility, linen room and even a small kitchenette in the fifth bedroom which can also serve as a garden room.
The three properties are of steel frame construction, built over a full boat yard facility with restaurant and office complex.
