Product used: Ziplok Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Omnis’ Ziplok standing seam profile has been used to create a stylish new swimming pool and sports complex at Westonbirt School in Gloucestershire.

The cladding profiles are supported by our structural decking profiles, giving a clean, uncluttered look to the interior of the building. The decking was made of steel in the case of the sports hall and amenities block, and aluminium for the swimming pool area in order to cope with the humidity. In each case the decking was web perforated to provide suitable sound absorption inside the building.

The Ziplok sheets were coated with our unique MicroMatt weathered finish which is designed to overcome any problems of glare from newly installed mill finish or stucco embossed aluminium roofs. MicroMatt replicates the appearance of a roof after it has been installed for a number of years and the natural weathering process has taken place. The artificially aged surface changes to a naturally aged surface evenly and consistently over a period of four to eight years, after which time the behaviour of the roof is exactly the same as the original aluminium profiles, with no effect on performance or recyclability.
