The Benefits Of Bespoke Fabrication

In 2020 Roofclad decided to expand their customer base by selling our metal fabricated products to the general public. Bespoke fabrications come with an abundance of benefits and allow for products to be designed and manufactured to fit specific requirements.

Wondering whether bespoke metal fabrication is the right option for you? We’ve pulled together a few of the main benefits to help you decide!

What Do We Mean By Bespoke Fabrications?

Bespoke fabrication is the process of manufacturing a product to meet the specific needs of the client, based on the dimensions and specifications. It can also be referred to as custom fabrication or custom metal fabrication. The result? Long lasting solutions that will benefit your business for years to come with fantastic custom sheet metal fabrications to use for your workplaces’ rooftop.

The use of sheet metal is common in the roofing industry in both residential and commercial settings due to its durability and ease of installation. From single skin gutters to rainwater down pipes there are a wide range of fabricated products that our vastly experienced fabrications team can manufacture to meet your needs.

What Are The Benefits Of Bespoke Fabrications?

Choosing bespoke fabrication, which is tailored to exact specifications, comes with a range of benefits.

Manufactured For Your Needs

Not all parts will fit all job requirements, meaning that sometimes you end up settling for the closest match. However with steel fabrication, which is extremely versatile and completely customisable, no matter the size or design you’re able to get out of it exactly what you want.

Bespoke fabrications help awkwardly shaped roofing function as effectively as possible as the custom metal fabrication can be tailored exactly for the shape of the roof.

Offering greater control and efficiency, steel fabrications prove hugely popular amongst the roofing industry. Fabricated products have more flexibility in terms of style, and by being fully customisable it means when it comes to installing there shouldn’t be many issues to face, which can be a common cause of delays.

Roofclad stock a range of standard colours and products within our office, however if something is required out of the ordinary, we are more than capable to assist. All our components are quality checked prior to being packaged and delivered to ensure they arrive in top condition. A just in time delivery process, guided by our site managers requirements means reduced on site storage is required.

Quick And Instant Communication

Bespoke metal fabrication makes it possible to get the job done quicker and more efficiently. Instead of long waits and unreliable deadlines, you’ll be working closely with a team dedicated to ensuring the fabrication is compatible to its purpose. As well as the convenience of the product itself, you’ll also have a far more convenient service. Custom metal sheet fabrication is time efficient, using technologies like computer-operated plasma systems to easily customise forms for the project at hand. You have full say in how you want the product to turn out meaning you’ll be happy with the end result.

Opting for bespoke fabrication means you’ll only be working with the best. Here at Roofclad our experienced fabrications team recognises that customer satisfaction is key to our continued success.

High Quality Steel

One of the main reasons why so many people opt for steel fabrication is because of its longevity and strength. Stainless steel can be shaped and moulded to whatever shape is required, and with steel being lighter and stronger than other materials and different metals, you won’t need as much of it. Other benefits with using high quality steel is that steel is 100% recyclable, and uses relatively little energy to produce it, making it both environmentally and economically sustainable. By only using the materials required it helps to reduce the amount of unnecessary waste.

With steel being specifically resistant to both high temperatures and corrosion unlike other metal products, you can build a product that can withstand the test of time, making it a worthwhile long term investment.

Here at Roofclad we only use the highest quality materials – the main materials we use are:

0.7mm plastisol coated steel

0.7mm bright white liner.

1.2-2mm galvanised steel.

1-3mm aluminium
