IKO help transform school into state of the art place of learning

IKO help transform school into state of the art place of learning

Together with Southern Flat & Pitched Roofing, IKO Polymeric provided new roofing for Northern Parade Schools.

Portsmouth City Council originally wanted a standing seam metal roof, but this was too expensive so IKO Polymeric offered PVC standing seam profiles in slate grey as a more economic option.

The project spec required a steeply pitched roof at 45°, levelling out at eaves to approx. 35°. Aesthetics were the key criteria for this project and an excellent standard of workmanship was needed in order to minimise the effect of ghosting through the insulation boards.

IKO Polymeric’s PVC standing seam profiles provided a perfect solution as it gave the roof the desired effect whilst also keeping the cost down, and thanks to their flexibility they were easy for the team to install.

IKO Armourplan PSG was chosen for this project due to its superior reinforcement and ease of installation. It is a product unique to IKO Polymeric, and uses premium quality PVC throughout.

The extra flexibility of the membrane helped the installers of Southern Flat and Pitched Roofing to achieve the desired tight and crisp details on the standing seams.
