Tata Steel UK updates market leading Colorcoat® guarantees to incorporate PV module installations


Previously, many pre-finished steel product guarantees had restrictions around the use and attachment of PV modules, rendering the warranty invalid. However, recognising the renewed vigour to create more sustainable practices within the industry, as well as the ongoing influence of Part L regulations and the rising cost of energy, other pre-finished steel products from Tata Steel have now had their guarantees updated for the UK market – reflecting the new needs of those in the industry.

The photovoltaic addendum, which previously only applied to Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® and Colorcoat Prisma®, with the Confidex® Guarantee, is now a key part of the other high build pre-finished steel products manufactured at the Shotton site.
