IKO roofs new home for penguins at Oceanarium

IKO Polymeric has provided their Armourplan PVC single ply membrane for a project to provide 250m2 of roofing for a kiosk, covered walkways and stores for the £1.5million extension to Bournemouth Oceanarium.

The centrepiece of the extension is the new Penguin Beach Encounter, a two storey building housing the latest Oceanarium residents – 10 Humboldt Penguins. Five years in the planning, this is the biggest project the attraction has undergone since opening in 1998, increasing the size of the aquarium by a third.

IKO Polymeric’s expertise helped solve the problem of securing the netting, originally specified to be done with eye bolts which proved impractical. Instead the netting was secured with welded on membrane straps.

Andy Coles, IKO Polymeric’sSenior Field Engineer, said "Our Armourplan PVC single ply membrane comes in a wide selection of colours so it was the obvious choice for the project. Slate Grey and Mid Grey were chosen to complement the existing GRP edge trims, curved metal drips and upstands to the edge of the warm roof section".
