BLM British Lead


BLM British Lead was founded in 1932 on the principle of bringing the best quality Lead Sheet to its customers. BLM’s wealth of experience and expertise, together with the advanced technology at their disposal, ensures that Rolled Lead Sheet meets the strict tolerances of British Standard BS EN 12588, allowing the product’s performance to be accurately predicted whilst in situ.
BLM’s manufacturing site in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire handles all aspects of Lead Sheet production, from recycling soft scrap Lead, rolling slabs of Lead into sheets and quality testing, through to cutting, packing and distribution. Two rolling mills give us the capacity to produce 50,000 tonnes of Rolled Lead Sheet annually. BLM supply Rolled Lead Sheet in any width from 150mm to 1580mm in Codes 3,4 and 5 and up to 1275mm in Codes 6,7 and 8 in standard roll lengths of 3 and 6 metres.
Non-standard lengths and thicknesses are available on request.
The company also offer a full range of ancillary products to ensure their clients have everything required to complete all aspects of Leadwork.
Being a member of the ECOBAT Technologies Group ensures all of BLM’s Rolled Lead Sheet is manufactured using 100% recycled raw material.
For peace of mind, BLM’s Rolled Lead Sheet comes with a 50 year warranty providing it is installed in accordance with the LSTA’s Rolled Lead Sheet Manual and BS 6915.
BLM are certified to the internationally recognised ISO 9001 for Quality Management, ISO 14001 for Environmental Management, OHSAS 18001 for Occupational Health & Safety and ISO 50001 for Energy Management.
