GreenCoat PLX Pro BT has a high level of flexibility which allows the material to be easily combined with other buidling materials

 

Budget

GreenCoat PLX Pro BT offers exceptional value for money, particularly when compared to Copper, Lead or Zinc.

BENEFITS TO THE ARCHITECT

GreenCoat PLX Pro BT offers a high level of flexibility and it has no spring-back, it has a feel of zinc or copper when bent by hand. This malleability means the material is easy to combine with other building materials offering unlimited possibilities to create bold roof designs. The high strength and guaranteed long-life of GreenCoat PLX Pro BT ensures it is an excellent zinc or copper alternative.

 

Colour Choice

GreenCoat PLX Pro BT comes in a choice of colour including matches to Zinc, patinated Copper (Verdigris) and Bronze. See colour chart.

 

BBA Certification

Tried and Tested

Architects in Sweden, France, Germany and across Europe have been specifying and using GreenCoat PLX Pro BT for generations.  For example, a significant proportion of roofs in Stockholm city and Stockholm old town benefit from standing seam material produced by SSAB Swedish Steel.

I am thinking of installing Zinc, can GreenCoat PLX Pro BT be installed in the same way?

Yes, the installation process and detailing techniques are similar

 

Can GreenCoat PLX Pro BT be used on a cold or warm roof build up?

Yes, GreenCoat PLX Pro BT is suitable for either type of roof design.  Please see our Resources page to download the appropriate brochure showing the installation procedure for either type of design

 

Are installation details available?

Yes, standard details are shown in the SSAB Cold and warm roof installation brochures, see our Related Articles.  Additional details or AutoCAD (.dwg) files are available on request.

 

Some standing seam metals require special underlays, does GreenCoat PLX Pro BT require anything specific?

Special underlays such as the structured underlay often used with specific brands of Zinc sheet metal roofing are not required.  A simple separation layer such as a mineral wool between the Prelaq and underlying support will suffice. This helps the metal move freely during its natural expansion and contraction with temperature changes.
