Apart from gold, copper is the only coloured metal occurring in nature and available for everyday applications. Copper provides a building with a long-lasting colour that becomes unique and prestigious as it ages.
When used to clad roofs based on a professionally designed and executed build-up, copper is exactly half the weight of lead, and about one quarter of a tiled roof. This reduces the cost of the substrate and any other materials usually employed in such projects.
The decision to design building cladding with copper leaves plenty of opportunities for creativity. Durable TECU® products from KME offer many unique possibilities. The striking natural surfaces in copper and copper alloys allow for singular design. Prefabricated system elements offer a wide range of solutions, from free-form designs to the simple and economic cladding of larger areas. Once in place, TECU® products come to life and become even more beautiful over time.
