The Belgravia Heritage
The Belgravia Heritage is the flagship of the range, inspired by us working and manufacturing zinc and copper for some of England’s most historic buildings.
These canopies are manufactured by hand, by our artisan workforce, using traditional skills and traditional sustainable materials. We’re working in association with English Heritage to proudly present this officially licensed product.
Apart from their natural beauty, we use zinc and copper to clad our canopies because they are both environmentally friendly and sustainable. Below are a few facts you may be interested in.
- Consumption of energy required to manufacture zinc metal from mineral is lower than that required for any other metal used in building envelope applications.
- Zinc and copper will last in the region of 100 years and will not degrade or discolour due to ultra-violet sunlight, unlike other materials.
- Over 95 % of old rolled zinc and copper is recovered and re-used in various fields of application.
- The use of natural zinc as an alternative to lead is a perfect replacement as they have a similar patina but, unlike lead, zinc has very little salvage value (so theft is unlikely).
ZAC is passionate about protecting England’s past, which is why we’re proud to present the Belgravia Heritage range – a collection of beautiful products created in association with English Heritage.
English Heritage is a charity that cares for over 400 historic buildings, monuments and places – from world-famous prehistoric sites to grand medieval castles, and from Roman forts on the edge of an empire to a Cold War bunker.
Every purchase you make from the range will help the charity keep the story of England alive for future generations.
Our traditional hand-built canopies are a perfect complement for historic and sensitive buildings, making them ideal for new developments and refurbishment work in conservation areas.
All our door canopies are fitted as standard with a continental drip flashing. So no need to cut and chase flashings into the wall, making them ideal for listed and sensitive buildings.
