High quality cleats and fasteners for fully supported metal roofing and cladding

The use of copper, stainless steel, zinc, aluminium and other materials in cladding and roofing has been a tradition for many years.

Our Duramet® range is a high quality range of cleats and fasteners for securing hard metal roofing and cladding systems. They have been designed to create a versatile yet simple fixing system that give you the freedom to deliver a range of finishes, from dramatic standing seam cladding to traditional long strip roofing.

What makes up the range?
  • Cleats
  • Fixings

Our standard cleat range is manufactured from A2/304 stainless steel – and available in 0.4mm or 0.6mm gauge. On larger roofs, or those with a high wind loading, the thicker 0.6mm gauge should be used.

The sliding component of the 0.6mm sliding cleats is 0.4mm gauge.

Standard cleats are available with a flat base with either pre-punched holes or pre-formed countersunk holes.

Whether fixing roofing to ply or decorative cladding to a steel skinned composite panel, there is a fastener to suit your needs: we offer a wide range of fasteners to fix DuraMet cleats including self-tapping fasteners, woodscrews and nails.
