Single ply membrane for city-centre hotel conversion

Single ply membrane for city-centre hotel conversion

Iko Polymeric helped refurbish the roof of a converted easyHotel in Sheffield.

The former Primark store in Castlegate area, north east of Sheffield city centre has now been converted to an easyHotel after a refurbishment project.

The five-storey building has been transformed into a 131-bed hotel with a basement gym as well as commercial space.

Working together with Protech Roofing, single ply membrane manufacturer IKO Polymeric undertook the refurbishment project of the roof.

Single ply was the perfect solution for this job thanks to its ability to overlay the existing material without the need to strip back to the deck.

Accuracy was very important to give the complex details a sharp and tidy look, especially around existing structures which needed full encapsulation.

IKO Polymeric’s easy to install, flexible Armourplan PSG membrane was the perfect fit for this job.

With high quality polymer throughout – even on the lower layers – and high performance reinforcement, this membrane offers enhanced benefits over standard PVC membranes

The extended guarantee requirements were met using only a 1.2mm thick membrane, also ensuring ease of installation.

Another challenge of the project was the busy location of the building. Health and safety and minimal disruption to public were the key requirements. As single ply is a flame-free application, it provided a safer installation for a city centre building.

IKO Polymeric’s field engineers provided technical assistance to Protech Roofing during their regular site visits throughout the project, advising on installation including complex details that need extra attention.
