Polish church has faith in Tata Steel to provide new roof
Worshippers in Poland are full of praise after Tata Steel answered the call to give their church a new roof.
The Mother of God Queen of Poland church in Matysówka was originally constructed in just 48 hours in 1981. Pollen and dust from the nearby tall spruce trees had taken their toll over the years, and so priest Mieczysław Wolanin was searching for a similar quick solution which could not only withstand the effects of nature but was guaranteed to last.
Colorcoat roof is a heavenly addition to Polish church
Tata Steel’s Colorcoat® pre-finished steel cladding was recommended by project advisors Regamet system manufacturer, thanks to its unrivalled corrosive resistance, superior colour and gloss retention and a unique 30-year Confidex® guarantee which also covers the steel’s cut edges, with no need for maintenance or inspections to ensure guarantee validity.
In just two weeks the cladding of the church roof was completed using 800 m2 of Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® in a Trapezoidal profile, in keeping with the roof’s original shape.
Prayers answered for Polish church with pollen problem thanks to Tata Steel
Exceeding the highest European standards of Ruv4 and RC5 as per EN 10169:2010, the project was such a success that the church was selected by Tata Steel as a European showcase building to mark the 20th anniversary of Confidex®.
The finished roof, in the deep red shade of Burano from Colorcoat’s extensive palette, is a decorative yet durable fixture which will provide shelter to the Mother of God’s Queen of Poland’s parishioners and future generations for many years to come.
