Ruukki have partnered with local, West Midlands based metal sheet fabricator, Format Architectural to supply flat sheets and flashings stocked at their premises in Halesowen. Ruukki and Format Architectural have had a long standing relationship; often working together to supply bespoke flashings, corners and curved profiles as well as composite panels to contractors working on various projects around the UK.
Ruukki also recently announced it is to use the name HIARC for all its façade coatings. Steel facade coatings which were previously known as PVDF, PVDF matt and PVDF HB will henceforth be renamed HIARC, HIARC matt and HIARC max.
Format will hold HIARC flat sheet stock in a variety of HIARC colours typically sized 1250mm x 3000mm and 0.6mm thick. Flat sheets can be purchased direct from Format Architectural, or can also be fabricated into flashings and delivered direct to site.
