Choosing the best waterproofing solution for your project

Choosing the best waterproofing solution for your project

Designing a suitable roofing system for your project can become more challenging as the number of roofing solutions increases. One way to remove the risks associated is to draw on the expertise of a specialist who can help you make the right choices.

SIG Design Technology offers an independent choice of waterproofing for flat, green, zinc and copper roofs.

Single Ply
The waveform roof finish to the Peak District bottling plant in bottle green reflects the rolling hills nearby. Architects Fletcher-Rae chose locally manufactured IKO Armourplan Premium PVC for its BREEAM Excellent credentials. 12000m2 of single ply provides the waterproofing over foil-faced insulation on a metal deck. This curved roof even in a bespoke colour was competitive against panel roofing systems.

Hot Melt Waterproofing
Hot melt waterproofing is a fully bonded system with no joints, ideal for green and inverted roofs on concrete. Hot melt is easily installed by SIG Design Technology's network of trained and approved contractors, even where there’s roof-mounted plant.

Cold, Liquid-Applied Waterproofing System
A cold, liquid-applied waterproofing system is best for a metal deck roof refurbishment to a plant room. Tough, highly elastic and multifunctional, it acts as sealer, underlay, vapour barrier and gutter liner in one. It’s fast curing even at low temperatures and adheres to almost any substrate.
