Type of works: supply of 400m2 of Rhepanol fk with decorative copper finish.
Tough, suave and irresistibly good looking, FDT's decorative copper coating was the perfect finish for the membrane roof of a super spy-inspired, award-winning home.
Moonraker is a luxury residential property drawing on the exploits of James Bond for inspiration. Bournemouth-based Seven Developments four-bedroom property, which includes a sunken garden with decked footbridge, is a cocktail of curves based on the shape of a crescent moon.
FDT's flagship 'green' membrane, Rhepanol fk, was chosen for its unique, curvaceous roof. The bonded system was applied with Rhepanol Adhesive 90 and finished deftly with the contemporary copper coating to give it all the aesthetic qualities of traditional copper. Over time, the initial bright copper colour weathers to mellow Bronze tones and eventually to a Green Patina.
Applied in two coats, even on standing seam profiles, it does not crack or peel and comes with the same life expectancy as the Rhepanol fk membrane.
