The LSA’s premiere publication is Rolled Lead Sheet – The Complete Manual which has become the essential point of reference for designers, specifiers and contractors using rolled lead sheet to BS EN 12588: 2006.

The Lead Sheet Manual provides comprehensive technical information, detailed drawings and photographs, sizing charts and illustrations to ensure best practice in the specification and installation of Rolled Lead Sheet. It supports the current BS6915 Code of Practice on installation.

The Manual is available for purchase as an e-book, enabling access via any electronic device connected to the internet. A printed version remains available for purchase, and access to the e-book is now offered free of charge with every printed version bought.

Please note – Users should be aware that the technical guidance given in the Manual applies only to Rolled Lead Sheet produced to the BS EN 12588 standard. If other forms of lead sheet are being used, you should contact your supplier for advice on the use and installation of that product.
