After installing the sandwich panels, there are seams and gaps between the installed sheets, and the flashing sheet is one of the accessories designed and produced to cover these seams and to seal the structure. Due to the fact that the installation and implementation of sandwich panels is somewhat different for each project and structure, flashings are also designed and produced in various forms.
Flashings are usually produced with a thickness of 0.4 mm and in types of aluzinc, galvanized or aluminum sheets. In addition to flushing, equipment such as gutter sheet are used to direct the water from rain and snow to the gutters and the ground surface.

The three-step flashing is a family of facade flashing. Mostly, the height of the slopes around the sloping roofs is close to 50 to 60 cm, which can usually be covered with three steps of 15 to 20 cm created in the facade flashing.
