Built-Up Felt Roofs

The three layer traditional, built-up felt roof using a rag-based reinforcement has now become obsolete other than on sheds or temporary structures. With modern reinforcement fabrics, such as polyester and the modified bitumen based compounds used in the high performance felts, the life expectancy has now improved considerably.

A recent project for EDF Energy at Bexleyheath involved IKO’s SafeStick self adhesive membrane, which has been developed with the knowledge and experience of the European IKO group of companies.

The Danosa POLYDAN® Self-adhesive systems are specially formulated polymer modified reinforced bitumen roofing sheets. POLYDAN® membranes are comprised of 3 key components: a polymer modified bitumen compound, a reinforcement layer and a variety of upper and lower surface finishes.

Ideal for areas where traditional hot application techniques are inappropriate, the Self-adhesive systems have a key combination of a high tensile polyester base and SBS elastomeric bitumen coatings. This ensures that while installation is completed in a fire safe way, all the high performance benefits of a multi-layer built up system are achieved.

The self-adhesive systems also features the Graphite Firewall Technology in its cap sheets. This ensures complete compliance with the highest UK and European fire performance standards. Membranes can also be used as detailing or fire break materials on detailed work when using hot applied systems.
