Kalzip foldable aluminium is the ideal material for traditional metal working techniques. Dublin 13 based Quality Building Materials (QBM) has today announced their partnership with German headquartered Kalzip.  The innovative aluminium manufacturers supply the Irish independent waterproofing suppliers with FalZinc, TitanSilver and Dark FalZinc which perfectly compliment traditional and modern planning concepts all whilst being 100% recyclable.  Falzinc has also been awarded the BBA Certificate, with a service life of 40+ years.

The pre-weathered material resists the impact of even the most severe environments and provides a durable appearance for buildings and long-lasting protection against the elements.  Kalzip foldable aluminium retains its shape, even under high structural loads and by utilising less material it is environmentally friendly and sustainable.
