About Protan expand_more
The roof is not much bigger than a tennis court, but represents a mixed double of a new-build extension and the refurbishment of the original roof.
The Vacuum System was supplied to protect the refurbished section of the roof structure, while Protan's membrane was used to cover a new extension.
Delivery of the Protan products to complete some 200 square metres of new and refurbished flat roof took place in early 2018.
- This was a challenging project with regards to planning permission. Protan were recommended to provide us with their Protan system and service support, says Mike Darling of East Wavertree and Childwall Community Association (EWCCA).
The beauty of the Vacuum System is not only could it employ the old felt as the necessary vapour control layer, but it can lap seamlessly with the single ply covering to the 100m2 timber flat roof on the new extension, to help meet the planning restrictions.
Vacuum is the natural choice for all refurbishment projects, as there are no mechanical fasteners and can be installed whilst the building is occupied causing minimal disruption and hardly any fasteners.
Energy efficient and sustainable, the Protan Vacuum system offers a low maintenance working life in excess of 30 years.
