  • Installation

led-a-flex lead substitute looks like lead and works like lead.


led-a-flex is a lead substitute manufactured with a base of EPDM and aluminium expanded metal. The exceptionally flexible and malleable properties of the metal, together with the excellent UV and ozone resistance of EPDM, combine to provide a totally unique product with a life expectancy in excess of 40 years.


led-a-flex is designed to provide a flexible and durable replacement for lead in most modern roofing applications.


The product has many advantages over traditional lead flashings, for those working in the roofing industry, including the simple and quick installation process and the non-toxic lightweight material.


led-a-flex is far quicker to install, at a fraction of the cost, developed as a substitute for lead maintaining both the flexible and deformable characteristics of traditional lead, while ensuring a lightweight material with the durability of EPDM, making led-a-flex ideal for complex detailing.

  • led-a-flex is not heavy, however it is wise to completely support all water seals with insulation or mechanical support.

  • It is advisable to lap flashings by a minimum of 100mm.

  • When using led-a-flex on top of PVC Membranes it is advisable to use led-a-flex with a Geotextile separating layer - please enquire for details.
