East Lake Metals, a leading provider of metal roofing solutions, has recently achieved a significant milestone through an exclusive distribution agreement with Wheeling-Nippon Steel. This agreement grants East Lake Metals exclusive rights to distribute and sell ZAM coated products for coastal roofing construction. This partnership cements their position as a premier supplier in the industry, further expanding their portfolio of high-quality roofing materials.
ZAM, a trademark owned by Nippon Steel Corporation, has garnered a reputation for its exceptional corrosion resistance and superior performance in coastal environments. East Lake Metals is now introducing ZAM® coated products, including Armored Coast metal roofing, sheets, and coils, to meet the specific needs of coastal construction projects. These products are designed to provide durable and reliable solutions that can withstand the harsh coastal elements.
One of the key features of ZAM® coated products is their unique composition, which includes 6% aluminum, 3% magnesium, and zinc. This composition ensures unparalleled corrosion resistance, making them an ideal choice for coastal roofing construction applications. The hot-dip coating process creates a robust barrier that effectively shields against the corrosive effects of saltwater, high humidity, and other coastal elements. By using ZAM® coated products, customers can benefit from an extended service life and reduced maintenance costs due to the superior protection they provide.
In addition to the product’s exceptional qualities, East Lake Metals is offering an industry-leading coastal construction warranty in partnership with ZAM® coated products. This warranty, valid for 20 years and 6 months, provides customers with confidence in the longevity and reliability of their investments. It covers not only corrosion resistance but also ensures the integrity of the substrate, guaranteeing the overall performance and durability of the roofing system.
The collaboration also encompasses AkzoNobel’s TRINAR paint, a high-quality finish that offers several advantages. Notably, TRINAR paint comes with no limitations regarding coastal roofing setbacks in its 35-year warranty. By combining superior products and both the paint and the substrate warranties, customers can enjoy peace of mind and maximize the benefits derived from these reliable and long-lasting solutions.
