Due to a lack of roof access, the decision was taken to extend the life of the existing metal cladding sheets by cleaning the roof and applying a new coating. Proteus Waterproofing’s Pro-System fully reinforced seamless waterproofing system was selected to extend the roof’s lifespan by 20 years.
Key Requirements: Health and Safety
When working on fully operational plants, safety and minimal disruption are always of utmost importance. As Pro-System is cold installed, it meets all health and safety criteria for occupied buildings and minimises risk of fire. The low odour application of Pro-System also allowed the Proteus licensed contractor to minimise disruption to the building’s occupants.
Key Requirement: Thermal performance
Using a white finish ensured as much heat from the sun is reflected as possible, reducing the heat sink to the building. As well as helping with the building’s internal temperature, this reduces the requirement for air conditioning units during the summer and therefore reduces electricity costs.
Key Requirement: Seamless waterproofing
Due to the difficult access and complex nature of the roofs, Proteus Waterproofing worked in close partnership with the licensed contractor to successfully deliver the project to a very high standard.
Key Requirement: Long term performance
Pro-System waterproofing system offers 10, 15, 20 and 25 year durability options which are also available with independently provided insurance.
