A bespoke software service allows designers and installer of flat roofing to optimise efficiency from design to installation.
From basic data, Protan’s Proplan package will produce an autoCAD 2D or 3D visualisation of the proposed roof, detailed specification of materials, the quotation plus manufacturing and site assembly details.
The system embraces detailing such as corners, perimeters and penetrations, providing accurate estimating of the total roof cost, and allows comparison between systems. So the designer and contractor can obtain the most efficient way to build the roof, with optimum logistics, installation and virtually zero on-site wastage.
“Proplan gives the professional a tailored, professional and efficient means to achieve a single ply roof in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible,” explains Protan managing director Fraser Maitland. “Customers that have already taken advantage of it all report it gives them best value throughout the process, tailored to their specific requirements, and peace of mind.”

All Protan single ply membranes are BBA, Sintef and IAB certified and approved, with a proven durability in excess of 30 years.
