With speed and ease of installation crucial at the conversion of an old office building in Edinburgh into a new Premier Inn, over 1,500m2 of Sika-Trocal Type S provided the perfect roofing solution to keep the multi-million pound project on track for completion.
Specialist contractor McConnell Roofing turned to Sika-Trocal for its cost-effective, hassle-free application. Specified in slate grey and with an extended guarantee of 20 years, the Type S membrane offered the perfect combination of ease, speed and long term performance.
The 2mm thick Trocal S membrane was mechanically fixed using Sika-Trocal’s innovative laminated metal disc system. This system sees the membrane and insulation mechanically fixed to the roof in a single process, ensuring a fast installation minimising components required and reducing overall project costs.
With the roof application complete, the high quality installation of the Sika-Trocal single ply membrane has not only helped to revitalise an ageing building but will ensure the hotel’s staff and visitors will remain protected from the elements for years to come.
