Russ Taylor, Sales Development Manager at BLM, said: “With continued product development a priority, the range will become more diverse and specialised in its nature allowing us to meet the uncompromising requirements of lead installers.” BLM strengthened support to users and installers of its products in 2017 with the launch of their Get Lead! App, which provides an extensive reference guide for users at all levels of skill and experience, with features including a stockist locator, calculators and step by step video guides covering the installation of common Leadwork applications as well as the installation of BLM’s key ancillary products. The stockist locator enables users to

search for their nearest BLM British Lead outlet by current location or postcode. Search results are listed by closest proximity, with additional contact information and the ability to call or email the stockist directly from the app.

The GetLead! app provides detailed

information on the wide range of Rolled Lead Sheet and Lead ancillary products offered by BLM; their features and appropriate applications. It also covers the technical aspects of Rolled Lead Sheet, such as quality, weight, sizing and correct use.

Basic Fitting Guides designed to assist with the installation of Lead Sheet in a range of

applications including flashings, valleys, gutters and flat roofing are available to view, download and share from the app.

In addition, some really handy tools

are included; a piece weight calculator to assist with costs and estimating and a roof pitch calculator allowing users to find the minimum lap required for certain applications.

Recommended H&S tips for storing, handling, installing or disposing of Lead, as well as safety data sheets are also available, providing users with full product safety information. “The BLM Get Lead! app is the first of its kind for the Lead industry. We gave the features and content considerable thought to ensure it offers a one stop solution for anyone using BLM’s products.” added Russ Taylor.
