VMZINC hits the heights on Heron Tower

Heron Tower has become one of the best known landmarks in central London. The 46-storey building has a VMZINC PLUS standing seam system on the two main roof areas, on the 38th and 41st floors. The building is among the tallest in which the compact, warm roof system has been used and as it needs no supporting ventilation views from the Drift Restaurant, Sky Bar and terraces are not affected by unsightly vents.

Precise wind loading calculations were needed, but the metal also had to be reflection-free. VMZINC’s pre-weathered mid-grey QUARTZ-ZINC® offers exceptional colour retention and was therefore the perfect choice.
