The ball stops here

Corus Building Systems UK's PMF Aluseam has been used in Scotland to create the new roof for Leuchars station - the stop for St Andrews golf course.

Architect Allan Valliday of architect Integrated Design Partnership in Glasgow says: 'The modern aluminium stucco embossed finish complements the existing Victorian station building and, as a self-finished, corrosion resistant product, will require minimal maintenance.'

Extruded aluminium secret fix clips, engineered as part of the Aluseam system, secure the panels in position while allowing thermal movement of the roof sheet. Water penetration is eliminated, as there are no fixing holes through the external weathering envelope.

Aluseam is available in lengths of up to 30m to span from ridge to eaves in one sheet, or eaves to eaves to avoid end laps.

Mechanical and welded laps are also achievable to provide exceptionally long slope lengths.
