In our time we have launched in excess of 60 new products and systems with countless derivations of standard systems. 100 tonnes of cladding were manufactured and sold into the UK construction market in our first year of production rising to a whopping 45,000 tonnes per year in recent times. As requirements have changed over the years even more products have been developed, sometimes a completely new offering to fulfil a specific need, other times to improve on established technology. The most recent examples of new product development are the new Opus plank cladding system - which can be applied as an Elite System or a BML Rainscreen - and the new sinusoidal rollforming and curving machines.
A story of innovation, growth and success
Euroclad® was formed
We started life on Seawall Road near Splott in Cardiff with just a handful of staff, which included our Managing Director Phil Cook. There was a new market emerging for pre-coated steel building products. A 38/914 rollforming mill was bought, the first job was supplied to Wyldes Road, Bridgewater. 100 tonnes of cladding were manufactured during 1981.
Euroclad® moves to Wentloog Corporate Park
Euroclad®'s share of the metal cladding market was now well established, additional liner rollformer and flashings became part of the company portfolio. The manufacturing operation quickly became too much for the Seawall Road manufacturing operation. A move was planned to Wentloog Corporate Park, a disused group of buildings on the outskirts of Cardiff.
Patent granted for SF500 Roof profile
Following a sucessfull application to the IPO, a patent was granted for a new Secret Fix roof profile that featured a snap fix overlap, with an easy fixing method that following installation left no fixings exposed. The system is still in use now and in 2015 had the rolling mill replaced after a staggering 7 million metres of product were rolled through the roll forming machine.
We we awarded BS5720 Accreditation - now known as ISO9001 for our Quality Management System.
Site Rolled Products
Euroseam® - A concealed fixed standingseam roof system, was added to our product portfolio in 1995. The rollforming facility was manufactured in Wolverhampton, then installed in to a trailer to enable on site production of product. The rollformer soon clocked up miles across the UK & Ireland and is still in service now. The rollforming equipment has been since added to with CNC Curving and Tapering lines also available for site production. The demand for longer rollformed sheets on site paved the way for the SF500 manufacturing facility to be made available in 1996.
Aluminium Imagination awards winner
The Sainsburys Greenwich store features a roof detail that was impossible to achieve, Euroclad® built an off site replica of the proposed solution which met all of the design teams' list of criteria. Sheets for the roof area were rolled on site at 85 metres. The building then was listed in the Guinness Book of World records, for "The most Energy Efficient Supermarket in the World!"
launch of ELITE systems
The concept of system specification had been researched and was launched as Euroclad Elite systems. Elite systems has partners to supply all accessory products that enables ELITE systems to have specifiable performance. Elite systems have grown to become Euroclad's key product route to market.
Investment in revolver rollforming line
The revolver rollforming line was installed in Unit A at our Wentloog factory. The investment upgraded existing established rollformed product lines and added new profiles to the product range, all manufactured from one automated rollforming production line.
VIEO products launched
Vieo draws its inspiration from traditional roofing and features a flat pan with up-stands either side. These up-stands sit over one another and are mechanically folded to become watertight. Vieo has become an architects favourite being specified on a wide range of applications also achieving success in penetrating the housing/domestic sector.
Quattro Spacer Bar System
We launched the Quattro Spacer Bar System an Elite system component, manufactured in Wentloog.
OPUS PLANK SYSTEM LAUNCHED
Opus is a new plank cladding product that can be installed as part of an Elite System, a BML rainscreen façade and a Rainspan® construction. The Opus planks are manufactured by an advanced new coil-fed rollforming machine and are available in pre-finished steel, painted aluminium and zinc. Plank cladding has become increasingly popular due to its competitive cost and highly attractive finish. Its adaptability also gives it a much broader appeal than many cladding systems, being capable of forming a structural, thermally efficient wall or being used as a cost-effective rainscreen for purely aesthetic reasons.
QR Code system
An ambitious project integrating the use of a QR codes on each panel for Rainscreen products. The use of cutting edge IT technology ensures full traceability through product manufacturing and delivery.
A new super fast 19mm Rollformer has been installed. Using the latest in technology offers, the machine console links directly to our IT systems enabling direct download of cut lengths and real time stock booking off.
With this achievement Elite Systems now provide even greater peace of mind, featuring BES 6001 alongside BBA certification of all systems and CE Marking of all components*. This is further strengthened by pre-existing, accredited management systems for quality, the environment and health and safety.
