Materials for wall coverings:

Wall coping is available in a variety of materials, including zinc, copper, aluminum, and stainless steel. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it's important to consider the needs of the client and the environment of the structure. For example, zinc is a cost-effective option that develops a natural patina and blends well with historic buildings. Copper, on the other hand, is durable, rust-resistant, and adds an elegant appeal to any building.

Tools for installation:

When installing wall copings, you will need a number of specialized tools to ensure that the copings are securely and permanently attached. These include:

  1. Impact wrench: A powerful impact wrench is essential to ensure fasteners are installed firmly and securely.
  2. Sheet metal shears: High-quality sheet metal shears allow precise cuts along the wall coverings to ensure a precise installation.
  3. Rivet gun: A rivet gun is necessary to connect the individual parts of the wall coverings together and to create a stable structure. GESIPA rivet pliers
