Roof Refurbishment, Ocklynge Junior School
Ocklynge Junior School in Eastbourne required a new waterproofing membrane on two of the school’s classroom roofs, as the existing membrane had reached the end of its serviceable life. Following a site survey by Proteus Waterproofing, Proteus Pro-Felt® Ultima Plus Fireguard was specified as the most suitable solution.
Key Requirements: High Performance Waterproofing
As the building was an operating school, a fire rated product was deemed to be a sensible option, therefore Proteus Pro-Felt® Ultima Plus Fireguard was installed. To incorporate the awkward detailing Proteus Pro-System® Plus was used. As it is a cold applied liquid, it meant it could be easily moulded. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor to ensure the project was completed to a high standard.
Key Requirements: Health and Safety
Due to the works being carried out during term time, safety was of utmost importance to the staff and pupils, as well as minimising disruptions. Proteus Waterproofing promote fire safe installation methods conforming to the industry lead Safe2Torch guidelines and is also certified with the highest European Fire Rating BroofT4.
Key Requirements: Long Term Performance
Proteus Pro-Felt® Ultima Plus is a high-performance multi-layer bituminous membrane system, tested to perform in extreme temperatures and weather conditions. This membrane is impervious to water and will achieve a weather-tight roof. It has class leading modified bitumen content which allows the flexible membrane to move with the building and ensure long term durability and performance which is certified by the BBA to be in excess of 30years.
