Granite® HFX Cool has been designed for constructing standing seam roofs in low temperatures, in the cold environments encountered in Northern and Eastern Europe.
Primarily standing seam roofs, but also walls and rainwater systems (gutters, downpipes and accessories).
Standing seam roofs (or walls) use continuous metal panels running from ridge to eaves with interlocking and overlapping ‘seams’ that offer both excellent weather resistance and distinctive, unbroken visual aesthetics. Granite® HFX Cool is ideal for these applications because of its ductility and malleability, even at low temperatures, as well as its durability. This allows rapid and effective creation of the seam whether pre-formed off-site, or formed on site.
Granite® HFX Cool has an optimised, flexible 55-micron paint system combined with a flexible steel grade (DX54D ‘minimum recommended’ and above) that can withstand deformation and weathering. It comes with an automatic guarantee for non-perforation of the steel substrate and non-peeling of the paint film up to 20 years in selected environments.
ArcelorMittal’s Granite® HFX Cool range of organic coated steels is available in 9 finely textured colours.
It is delivered in thickness from 0.55 to 2.0 mm and width from 700 mm to 1500 mm
It is ranked RUV4 in accordance with EN 10169, RC5 in corrosion resistance, and A1 in fire resistance according to EN 13501-1.
