Kalzip Systems laying the way for Sustainable Roofing

29 Jun , 2020  

With a long-standing reputation for delivering leading roofing and facade systems to the Construction industry, QBM is leading the way with the growth of the Kalzip foldable aluminium range across Ireland.

Guaranteeing the ultimate in quality and reliability, Kalzip foldable aluminium meets the highest standards in terms of performance and design for the realisation of roofs and facades which are both functional and visually fascinating.

Kalzip sustainability focuses on aluminium itself – a material that can be recycled as often as required and has sufficient reserves. It makes a significant contribution to protecting buildings effectively and over decades against external influences and to maintaining their value in the long term. Thanks to its durability and excellent recycling properties, three-quarters of the aluminium produced worldwide to date is still in use.

A private residential property which was designed by leading architectural firm,  Kurt Wittrock in the Kalzip system. The dark facade made of Kalzip Ltd Foldable Aluminium in Dark FalZinc harmonises with the materials used and contributes to the  modern architectural design of this building. The pre-weathered surfaces of the Falzcolor metal roofing range retain their noble appearance and protect buildings even in the event of strong environmental influences.

Today, after 50 years, Kalzip is proud of its long history and its involvement in numerous impressive buildings, such as the “Stadio delle Alpi”, in Turin that was opened in 1990, the “Barajas Airport” in Madrid with 232,000 square metres of Kalzip profiled sheets and the “King Abdullah Airport” with a roof area of 350,000 square metres.

Kalzip gained worldwide attention in 2016 when the sarcophagus for the damaged Chernobyl nuclear power station, was clad with 168,000 square metres of Kalzip sheets produced in stainless steel.

Today, Kalzip’s foldable aluminium range in Ireland is supplied by leading Irish roofing suppliers QBM who are delivering the high-performance roofing systems to commercial and residential developments across Ireland and the UK.
