Zink PITCHED ROOFING 01992 801927 www.almhm.co.uk Norbord’s new SterlingOSB campaign, designed to promote sales of SterlingOSB panels through builders’ merchants, is focused around a theme of the product being “a great deal better”, and hosts a builders’ competition where weekly prizes can be won. Designed to highlight SterlingOSB’s strengths in a host of construction tasks, the campaign uses icons so builders and merchant staff can identify at a glance what the panel can do. Norbord says that, for the first time, OSB sales are ahead of plywood sales; as it is more cost-effective, homegrown and can do almost everything ply can do. The simple icons highlight strength, consistency, performance in humidity, and various applications including walls, roofs and site hoardings. In addition, SterlingOSB has become a fashion statement, used decoratively as well as structurally in retail and hospitality environments. David Connacher, Norbord’s brand and communications manager, commented: “As market leader, we want to continue to provide merchants with the support they need to help their customers see the benefits of SterlingOSB. “The icons provide a quick and easy way for merchants and builders to see the main benefits of the product; as a reminder for those who use the panel, and as an information piece for those who may not have considered it before.” www.norbord.co.uk Wienerberger has announced the latest addition to its range of leakproof roof flashing solutions. Koraflex Plus offers a combination of easy installation, environmental performance and long-term value, with a choice of three colours. The newly developed flashing solution is designed for quick and easy installation. A durable adhesive backing removes the need for prefabrication or welding, and the material stretches up to 70% in length and 15% in width, so it can easily be formed to complex shapes such as corners and deep tile profiles. Made from a lead and solvent-free material to prevent chemical leaching, the solution features a smooth, durable surface, which repels dirt and lichens, making the product completely safe to use with rainwater harvesting systems. Fully approved by the British Board Copper Stainless of Agrément (BBA), it’s supplied with a full RoofSpec guarantee. Providing that it’s applied in compliance with official Wienerberger specification, this ensures the performance of Koraflex Plus for a period of 15 years. Finally, the solution is available in a choice of red, grey and black, so that it effortlessly blends into all roof types, which also helps to prevent theft. www.wienerberger.co.uk/ koraflexplus Picture the perfect panel Flashing Plus points Perfected by nature.
