Vieo draws its inspiration from traditional
roofing and features a flat pan with up-stands either side.
These up-stands sit over one another and are mechanically folded to
become watertight. The colours available mimic materials like
zinc, copper and lead which make Vieo an engineered, factory
manufactured alternative to traditional metal roofing..
Euroclad approach sustainability with absolute integrity and
employ a holistic approach to cradle to cradle sustainability which
aims to minimise the environmental impact of the production of
components, manufacturing processes, transport, installation, use
and end of life. Also included is life cycle assessment of
environmental impact categories such as global warming, resource
depletion, embodied energy, eutrophication, acidification and
volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
Vieo generally offers A or A+ BREEAM Green Guide rating - please
refer to our technical office for more information.
Euroclad has achieved accreditation of the ISO 14001
environmental management system, demonstrating its ongoing
commitment to environmental concerns.
By specifying Vieo, it is possible to protect your pocket as
well as the planet. Euroclad's cradle to cradle approach can
deliver a sustainable metal roof and wall solution that doesn't
cost the earth.
With the ever-increasing cost of energy and demands for lower
carbon emissions, it is important to achieve low U value and good
air tightness systems for thermally efficient buildings. Vieo
offers robust solutions to achieving excellent performance.
The current Building Regulations Part L came into force in
October 2010 and focused on improving the overall energy
performance of buildings. Vieo features high density RocSlab
insulation that can achieve U-values as low as 0.15W/m2K using
240mm of insulation. The system is designed to eliminate cold
bridging, reduce the risk of condensation and provide good air
Vieo warm roof construction uses non-combustible Rockfibre
insulation, thereby reducing the risk of fire spread and complying
with all necessary legislation. The fire performance of any
building system is paramount to the safety of the building
occupants and the prevention of fire spread - the use of
non-combustible rock fibre insulation can help eliminate risk.
Revisions to Part B of the Building Regulations have meant that,
for the first time, designers are being asked to complete a fire
risk assessment as the first stage of any design process -
underlining a new fire prevention approach that asks designers to
identify fire risks at an early stage, and try to remove them.
Key to any low fire risk solution is a building design that
limits fire spread. When it comes to selecting a roofing system it
makes sense to use non- combustible insulation and metal external
sheets to provide confidence and peace of mind.
In order to comply with current building regulations (Part L)
the thermal performance of the system must be determined in
compliance with BS EN 10211/1 and 2, to achieve the required
U-value. Details of methods for showing compliance are available in
the Governments Approved Document itself, the MCRMA Technical Paper
14 and Euroclad's Construction Details book. As well as
publishing the U values for standard system, the 'psi' values (cold
bridging around details) and F factors (reducing the risk of
condenstaion) are available for robust and bespoke details.
NBS draft specifications are provided for standard constructions
and can be tailored to suit project performance requirements
This service can utilise our experience and the flexibility of
built-up systems, which can respond individually to your

As part of its commitment to quality, service and the
environment, Euroclad operates a Quality Management System approved
to BS EN ISO 9001:2000 and an Environmental Management System
approved to BS EN ISO 14001:2004.
Euroclad continues to enhance its wide range of products and
high levels of manufacturing excellence; building on the
sustainability, performance and design flexibility already inherent
in its construction systems and production processes.
Due to manufacturing efficiencies and the relative simplicity of
installation the Vieo roofing system is very
cost-effective. The continuous manufacture of sheets results
in economies of scale and the simple installation process means
less time onsite. When considering the lifetime cost of the
building the energy performance remains consistent for the life of
the building and the material durability provides peace of
mind. At the end of life components can be disassembled
easily and the steel and stone wool insulation recycled, generating
an income from recycling of metal components.
