The achievement of zero defects on-site is critical not only to ensuring the project is completed on time and within budget, it also ensures a watertight building that will have stable thermal performance at roof level. With the increased focus on the environment, and particularly the reduction of carbon emissions, maintaining thermal performance over time is critical.
The Sika-Trocal®/Sikaplan® membranes utilise lightweight, flexible and easy to install single ply membranes to provide a range of new and refurbishment roofing systems that are ideally suited to today’s environmentally conscious fast track construction programmes.
In the 1970’s the company was amongst the first to achieve a British Board of Agrément (BBA) Certificate for single ply membranes. Updated numerous times since, that document is still used to satisfy the requirements of the Building Regulations today.
Comprising a range of single ply membranes that can be attached in a number of ways, the Sika-Trocal®/Sikaplan® roofing membranes are suitable for most forms of flat, pitched, curved or even vertical roof surfaces. Central to the Sika-Trocal®/Sikaplan® is the Type S membrane, first manufactured in Germany in 1962. Since then Sika-Trocal®/Sikaplan® roofing membranes have been used in every type of environment throughout the world.
