Flashings / strip profiling lines
Flashing can assume e.g. the following forms:
- Roof flashing is placed around discontinuities or objects which protrude from the roof of a building (such as pipes and chimneys, or the edges of other roofs)
- Wall flashing may be embedded in a wall to direct water back outside or to prevent the entry of water into the wall. Wall flashing is typically found at interruptions in the wall (such as windows and points of structural support)
- Sill flashing is a concealed flashing that is typically placed under windowsills or door thresholds
- Base flashing is found at the base of a wall and usually incorporates through-wall flashing with weep holes to permit the escape of water.
All these mentioned building accessories are very important elements of the complete building system. They provide sealing, water drainage and proper aesthetics to a building. They are usually being made of flat steel sheet which is either pre-cut in lenght or coming directly from a coil. In some cases if the need is not very big, some of them may also be done by a bending machine or a hydraulic press.
