Aluminium Roofing Bespoke Fabrications

Areco provides a range of bespoke metal fabrications for the roofing industry. These include aluminium roofing materials, such as aluminium cappings and copings, wall flashing, box gutters and angle sections. These items are usually fabricated from aluminium, mill finish or powder coated, but other materials, including galvanised steel and plastisol sheet, can also be used upon request.

Aluminium Cappings & Copings

/media/pages/library/metalfab-01.jpgOur "secret fix" aluminium capping system with its hidden brackets provides a smooth, clean outline to roof edges, whilst protecting parapet walls from damage caused by air pollution, rain and snow.

Our aluminium coping can be supplied in mill finish aluminium or powder coated to most BS or RAL Nos. This allows the coping to be colour-matched with the other parts of the buildings structure. The aluminium coping can also be fabricated with either a flat top or sloping profile and overhangs the brickwork to allow water to run off clear of the wall edge.

The system includes a variety of corner junction pieces and expansion joints to meet different design demands.

Aluminium Box Gutter

/media/pages/library/metalfab-02.jpgUsed on commercial and industrial buildings, our aluminium box gutters, powder coated to BS or Ral numbers, provide the solution to matching gutters and downpipes to the rest of the building. Our aluminium box gutters can be fabricated to a range of sizes.

Wall Flashings, Angles and Cill Sections

Our wall flashings, angles and cill sections can be fabricated to a multitude of shapes and sizes to provide a professional finish to the structure. They can be powder coated to most BS or RAL numbers to provide that matching finish to the rest of the structure. Jointing sleeves can also be provided upon request.

Fixing Instructions

Prior to fixing, our site copings should be thoroughly checked on arrival to ensure that the material is as ordered and has no damage in transit. It is advisable to lay out coping prior to fixing to ensure sufficient quantities and to familiarise with the position of the components.


Coping may be cut using normal metalwork tools as required. All cuts should be de-burred. If powder coated coping is cut, a touch up can be supplied to you at an extra cost.


Coping is supplied with three fixing brackets per length; one joint and two intermediate. One should be fixed at each end and intermediate at approximately 1000mm centres. On long runs it is advisable to use a builders line to ensure good alignment of brackets. It is advisable to fix fittings first and then cut lengths of coping to suit. Brackets should be fixed with corrosion resistant screws. Length and gauge of screws are dependant on the substrate.

Thermal Expansion

A 3mm gap should be allowed at all joints to allow fo thermal expansion.
