Flashguard is made up of an expandable aluminium strip with a special synthetic backing bonded to the underside.
The backing provides an excellent weather sealing membrane on the underside of the expandable aluminium strip. Another key design feature of Flashguard is that it protects the roofing panels from unnecessary risk of damage during installation of the flashings.
The synthetic backing layer covers the expandable width of the product, right to the leading edge, to provide a barrier to scratching the paint finish of the roof. This backing has a service temperature range of between -40°C and +90°C and contains only 1% carbon black by weight
Flashguard is available in over 40 colours carefully matched to those supplied by metal roof manufacturing suppliers. The paint system meets the durability requirements of AS NZ 2728:2013
- Flashguard is so easy to install, it can be dressed down using finger pressure only, so there is no need for special tools. There is no need for hammering into roof profile, no need for cutting or forcing into shape and hence no risk of scratching, denting or paint damage to the roof.
- The special backing provides a weather sealing membrane with excellent elastic characteristics and resistance to moisture. Flashguard perfectly hugs the contour of the roof profile, preventing birds from gaining access.
- Compatible with Zincalume®, aluminium and galvanised steel roofing materials, pressed metal tiles and long run metal roofs.
- Flashguard is approved for installation when collecting potable water off the roof structure.
