Wakaflex is Australia’s foremost lead-free roof flashing solution and is suitable for nearly all roof profiles and types. The inert qualities of Wakaflex mean it can be installed in direct contact with all roofing materials including tiles, slate, metal and polycarbonate. Lighter, safer and easier to use than traditional lead flashing, it’s dead simple to install with no specialist tools or sealant required, saving time and labour costs.
Exhibiting a malleability that provides a tight seal immediately, Wakaflex flashing roll is ideal for use in pitch transitions, wall abutments, as well as rising parts of structures such as chimney flashings. Constructed from an aluminium honeycomb mesh embedded into a UV-resistant butyl-based rubber, Wakaflex possesses a unique self-bonding ability, quickly forming a sealed edge and improving the weather tightness of any roof. These properties also make it a terrific option for quick and secure repairs.
Wakaflex is available in four colours (terracotta, black, lead grey and brown) and can be painted to match any tile or metal roof profile once installed. In addition, it comes in three different width rolls, so you’ll be able to find a product for every application.
Completely eradicating the environmental concerns and potential health hazards for installers, this ultra-safe roof flashing is suitable for rainwater harvesting since there is no toxic or corrosive run-off, delivering water entirely free of contamination.
Wakaflex is temperature stable and can be laid in hot or cold conditions, and since it will not expand or contract, it can be installed in full 5 metre lengths. A 30mm overflash lap joint is all that’s required because Wakaflex will chemically bond with itself for a secure seal.
