Throughout the construction industry, clients, specifiers, main contractors and specialist contractors need to be more aware of the environmental performance of products in specifications, design, on-site application and operational life. With this in mind Sika-Trocal has just added a comprehensive new environmental section to their website at www.sika.co.uk.
We are all going green, whether as consumers or as part of a multi-billion pound construction industry, and that includes the roofing sector. The Sika Group has made a huge commitment to the environment and the companys Sika-Trocal single-ply membranes are recyclable, have low embodied energy and score a low Ecopoint rating. With fast efficient installation by trained contractors, Sika-Trocal membranes clearly contribute to a long lasting and sustainable roof.
To help all those involved in the specification and installation of Sika-Trocal products, the company has added an environmental category in the roofing section of its internet site, covering the key topics of: durability; recycling; embodied energy; light weight; solar reflectivity; air leakage; BRE ecopoints; the Green Guide to Specification and BREEAM.
Those involved in the flat roofing sector must consider the environment as it is a fundamental part of every construction project and with numerous companies making unsubstantiated environmental claims, its important to use the independent assessment tools available for the evaluation of buildings, systems and products. The new environmental section of the Sika internet site clearly demonstrates the ability of the Sika-Trocal concept to meet environmental demands through the use of independent data.
