East Lake Metals has announced the availability of a new coated steel product developed with coastal construction projects in mind. The company says the new product, called Armored Coast, is the “ultimate answer to coastal roofing solutions, ensuring unmatched durability, aesthetics, and longevity for your projects.”
Unrivaled Corrosion Resistance and Convenience
Armored Coast is a groundbreaking solution in coastal construction, offering unparalleled corrosion resistance and ease of installation. Armored Coast metal is a hot-dip Zinc-Aluminum-Magnesium alloy coated steel sheet that provides superior corrosion resistance and cut-edge protection in applications to within 300′ of the coastline, enabling panel systems formed from the material to be installed using standard galvanized steel clips, rather than more expensive stainless steel.
According to a study by the International Zinc Association, ZAM has a corrosion rate of less than 5% after 25 years in a marine environment, compared to 100% for galvanized steel and 40% for galvalume. Moreover, ZAM has a self-healing property that prevents rust from spreading along the cut edges, which are the most vulnerable parts of metal roofing. This feature saves money, time, and hassle from frequent maintenance and replacement, as well as extending the lifespan and performance of the material.
Armored Coast is a metal roofing solution that stands out for its long warranty and variety of colors. Unlike most metal roofing products, which offer a 10-year or 15-year warranty, Armored Coast has a 20-year coastal guarantee and a 35-year paint finish warranty. This means that customers can trust that their roof will not corrode, fade, or crack under harsh coastal conditions.
Customization & Flexibility
Armored Coast prioritizes functionality but without sacrificing aesthetics. Similar to galvanized steel in terms of its paintability, Armored Coast allows for limitless customization possibilities. East Lake offers the material in six stocked colors, but customers can also choose from 20 other conventional roofing colors. This range enables metal roof and wall systems fabricated from Armored Coast to mesh with both classic and modern designs, and seamlessly complement any architectural vision.
“East Lake Metals is committed to delivering the finest coastal roofing solutions,” said the company’s news release about the product. “With our expertise and exclusive partnership with Armored Coast, we provide unparalleled products and services for your customers. As your trusted partner, we understand the importance of protecting your valuable assets.”
