Project Description


Reinforced Bitumen Membrane


This project involved the re-roofing of a metal deck roof incorporating insulation and associated works on an operational school.  The total roof area was 291m2.

The materials selected for this project was a Garland Waterproofing System, comprising Garland Contact Primer; Stressply Self Adhesive Metal Lined Vapour Control Layer; Tapered Insulation Scheme (130mm); Garland Insul-lock Insulation adhesive; Garland Torch Flex Ultra Vent adhesive Underlay; and Garland Stressply Flex Plus Capsheet, with a mineral surface finish.

Associated works to the project included installing cladding to the boiler room and a two-story building on site; installing new UPVC windows and infill panels; replacing roof lights. adjusting and renewing rainwater outlets; and renewing cavity trays, as necessary.

Sussex Asphalte successfully managed the works ensuring that it was completed during the School’s summer holiday. This meant that we avoided operatives working on site during term time, minimising disruption to the school and health and safety risks.

Sussex Asphalte is an approved installer of Garland Waterproofing Systems, whose operatives have been properly trained in the installation of this system. The materials performance and labour on the Hangleton Junior School Project carry a guarantee of 30 years.
